More Sikh Wars

Sikh regular lancers pass monolith buildings I am collecting new figures and buildings from the War Office on Wednesday looking forward to it..

Foundry figures painted by the War Office who also added the ribbons to the bamboo lances.

Bamboo effec is paintedt on the lance Tony says this took ages which I quite believe but looks the part I think.

Massed British Guns.

Sikhs charge the guns.

Sepoys in British service.

More sepoys under British command.

Still planing on getting terrain made this year for this collection then I can get them all on a table.

All flags by the Flag Dude I first seen these by chance a guy had them with him when visiting a shop in  Glasgow and was good enough to show me them I can't see by them now think they really set of the painting on the figures.

Most battles in this conflict had a ratio of 1 British Regiment to 2 Sepoy Regiments something that would cause problems for the British the following decade.
