With a "The Men Who Would be Kings" game coming up I wanted to get a few figures finished for it, it was planned as 1919 Third Afghan War. So I managed to paint but not quite base these two Mounted British Yeomanry figures converted from Perry's WW2 cavalry for Syria. The wide brim to the helmet is a sunshade. I really like these and have 4 more to paint all with head swaps for the earlier sun helmets.
I decided I would keep this post in draft for a week and see what I managed to paint up.
These three kind of fall into that category, the chap at the back is an old Foundry Afghan whilst the two at the front are Sikh irregulars. All a good fit for my irregular forces.
So I did say I would add pictures as I got stuff painted and I have a bunch just varnished to share, Expanding on the 2 Sikh Gunners I have anther 6, mainly horse artillery, these will be three man crews on small 6 pdr guns. Two more figures will give me three crews. As the Sikhs had more artillery and heavier metal I will make a few of their batteries 3 instead of 2 guns to beef them up.
I have dropped all these figures into the painted figure box until I have enough to finish units and start basing them up. Not bad for a weeks work.
