I decided to crack on with basing up the Baggage and I am quite impressed with how it looks all together. Some lovely peices from a number of manufacturers but mainly Empress. I doubt I will add too much more to these.

I have been able to finish a bunch of Sikhs and start the next units for these, some really colourful figures coming off the workbench this week.
I am particularly pleased with these two Sikh Officers, Both Foundry figures the right hand chap is riding a Riders of Rohan plastic Horse which fits quite well I feel for the Sikhs.
Thanks for taking the time to have a flick through my blog, next up probably will be more Sikh irregulars, especially those green coats and possibly the Bengal Europeans.
Until then stay safe.

Continueing with the theme of reviewing my Elizabethan Ireland project we move onto the "Mere Irish". Probably meant to be as a derogatory as it sounds "Mere Irish" was used to describe the native Irish forces, it is worth noting that the native Irish fought for either side and sometimes both.
Initially organised for Pikemans lament I may need to add figures if I am to do Sharply Buffed or another rule set. The Six horse are all Redoubt enterprises with head swaps. Nice figures with awful heads originally. The heads were salvaged from a range of different figures including Perry Irish and CI am told Perry's are looking at Irish horse for the Wars of the Roses so I will either expand with those or add some Dark Age Irish possibly from Crusader or Footsore.
Antideluvian with a Foundry warrior added in with a helmet swap to bring him up to date.

I have the bit between my teeth a little at the moment with the Sikh Wars project, seeing some real progress. I reckon I ma about two thirds of the way through this project with very little left to buy for it other than Gurkhas when Empress release them at some point. Of course I may still et carried away and buy more at some point.
Before we look at the units lets start small with this very nice Bhisti, think he came out well. Useful for the baggage train and Sharp Practice. From Foundry's Sikh Wars range.
