Outfitted in khaki, these fellows will likely see action throughout Kevin's NWF campaigns and will see service in both major combatants' expeditions. Figures are Wargames Foundry from the Indian Mutiny range. The Lead Pile contains a handful of similar figures capable of building at least two more such native infantry. Excellent sculpts!
Kevin has suggested a Russian force would be a useful addition to NWF campaigning. Well, I took the bait. Enough Foundry Crimean era Russians have been added to The Lead Pile to field two or three battalions of infantry, several squadrons of cavalry, and a couple of guns. I have about a dozen Russian hussars painted long ago that I plan to rebase from single bases to pairs. With most of the figures garbed in greatcoats, once begun, it should be possible to field the infantry in relatively quickly.
Next off the painting desk will be my first attempts at Landsknechts and an AWI British combined light infantry battalion.
