Another addition to the Great Game project! Off the desk this time is native Afghan crew and gun. Gun and crew are from Wargames Foundry and as expected Foundry's mid-19th Century ranges still offer state of the art sculpting from so many years ago.Years ago, I had a number of Old Glory and Foundry Pathans and Afghan Regulars for Colonial gaming. I loved the battalions of Afghans in beehive hat and Turkomen in fur headdresses. Classic figures! Those figures are long gone, though. Oh, how I wish I still had them. While I will not likely be duplicating the Regular Afghan troops from the 2nd Afghan War, many groups of Afghan tribesmen should certainly be considered.
Still, more Russian foot and horse remain in The Lead Pile with a battalion of Empress Miniatures' Russians on its way as a test.
