Sikh Irregular Artillery

A second Sikh Irregular gun and crew muster off the painting desk.  Figures are Wargames Foundry figures from the Sikh Wars range.  Still excellent sculpting and molding even after all of these years.  Newer figure ranges have nothing over these old Foundry sculpts.
With the addition of this gun, the Natives can field 96 infantry, 24 cavalry, and three guns and crew.  Combined with the Russian Expeditionary Force, the British may have their hands full.
Rumblings are being heard from the frontier of increased tensions with small skirmishes breaking out in outposts up and down the frontera.  Will the British and Russians come to blows soon?  Will punitive expeditions be entertained to silence these increasing skirmishes?

  2. Very nice indeed.

    I am working on some older foundry figures myself at the moment - their old Great War British (which I am, of course, using at Canadians) and they are lovely little models to paint.

    1. Thank you, David! An alt-history project does look like fun. If it doesn't hold my attention, i can always use the Russians for the Crimean War and the Sikhs for, well, the Sikh Wars!

  5. Nice work as always, Jonathan. I like the little bit of green on the one figure to add some variety. You show us again why Foundry figures are the gold standard.
    What rules do you plan on using? I hear a lot of talk about the Men Who Would Be King.

    1. Thanks, Michael! As I noted above Foundry figures do not go out of style. For rules, we have been using a big battle version of TSaTF but I have several other sets I would enjoy giving a try. One of my favorites for colonial wars is Fields of Honor.

    1. Glad you approve of the result! As for AARs, I need to get them into a game first! Rumblings are being heard of a game on the 29th.
