My next offering from the basing department is my first battalion of Bengal Native Infantry. These have been painted as the 41st who fought in numerous actions through the Sikh Wars.
The native troops made up around two third of British, or more properly East India and Queens, troops. Usually brigaded with one European and two native units together. This is the basic uniform with the cap being a forage cap with a white cover. Some units fought in their peakless shakos and others wore the native dhotti trousers so I hope to have units in all these varieties.
