The Sikh Wars project so far

Having a few more bases of Sikhs from the basing department I thought why not do a review of the Sikh army so far. It happened that the photography department was here too so we have some nicer than usual pictures thanks to an influx of folk for the basing departments 21st birthday party.

First pictures are the latest back from the basing department. Irregular matchlock men.

 Then irregular word and spear men
 A general.
 And irregular horse. Foundry with some Perry Afghans mixed in.

So thats the new figures now lets look at the wider collection.

 Then the really colourful guys the armoured noble cavalry or Gorchurra.

 I do love this general and the a Sikh army wouldnt be the same without big ornate guns.

Thats the irregulars here are the regulars.
Just one small unit of regular horse so far, then the foot.

 And the guns of course with nice fancy scroll work.
 And then the whole lot so far. Need at least double for a game but its getting there.
And then the photography departments snaps.

So thats it for Sikhs for now. I will do a British/Company one when I get some more figures completed.

Thanks for reading.
