Remaining on the NWF, a 24 figure battalion-sized equivalent assembles off the painting desk. Figures are Wargames Foundry irregular Sikhs from the Sikh Wars range (SK125). The plan with these natives is to press them into service with the their potential Russian master to counter British incursions on the NWF.
Of course, they could also be fielded for either the British or Sikh army. The possibilities for their employment are many.
Without a bit of control, a few Sikh or native units could expand beyond planned boundaries to encompass a Sikh Wars or Indian Mutiny project. Tread lightly.
