Sikh Wars Irregulars Back from the Basing Department

 Along with a mothers day present (for the finance department of course not me) a package of based figures arrived over the Mothers day weekend with a bunch of irregulars that had gone to the basing department before the latest lock down.

These are random bases of Sikhs and Muslim tribesmen who will fill out part finished units for the most Part there are still others still over in York to help complete some of these and others in my basig gbox still to go over.

The two bases of heavy cavalry are the start of a new unit, I already have enough painted to finish this unit once I can get them over to the basing department. The light cavalry will join a part finished unit thta just needs two more figures which I am working on currently. These are all original Foundry Sikh Wars Miniatures.
These Muslim tribal cavalry will finish a unit of irregulars off taking me to three of these, I think the mix of Foundry and Perry with the Perry flag works really well.
All of the horses are the smaller Foundry ponies and the Standard bearer is from the Perrys Victorias little Wars range.
Again  a mix of Foundry and Perry with the first three from the left being Foundry and the last one  perry figure with a horse pinched from the crusades range.
The flag is one of the Virtual Armchair Generals and pretty generic but works quite well.
These blade armed troops all look like they mean business and are a real mix of manufacturers. This leaves me one base short of a full unit of swordsmen. I particularly like the chap in buff with the pinkish turban and orange scarf, a Perry miniatures plastic figure this one.
In this group of 8 we have both Perry plastic and metals, Wargames Atlantic plastic, Wargames Foundry and Studio Miniatures, essentially 5 ranges out of 8 figures.
I particularly like this next lot. a nice unit of Jezailchis these a really useful for a number of periods so a nice to have unit, these will finish off anoher unit of Hill tribes.
These are a few different manufacturers, quite a few of these are plastics from both Perrys and Wargames Atlantic with five wargames Foundry Afghans.
Heres a few group shots , forgive the stripey throw its a bit more jarring than I had hoped.  Promise not to use this one again.




So a nice addition to the collection, the boxes are almost full and I am having to find more space with lots more to paint and to come back from the basing department.

Hope you like them, until next time, stay safe!

  4. The figures look super and the basing dept has done a top job. I need to add more large pebbles to my basing materials. The mixing of ranges makes for very dynamic units. Well done mate
