End of the siege the storming!

Hi guy's
The last time we visited the Sikh collection was the siege here we have the conclusion with the storming of the city.I would like to take this opportunity to thank the followers and visitors who have dropped by over the last six months,any of you who blog yourself will know that it's that sort of encouragement that keeps you posting.I have tried to leave comments on a number of blogs recently but have been unable to due to a fault with blogger,I know others are having the same problem hope they fix this soon.
Best wishes
Willie

Foundry Sikh war figures sculpted by the Perry twins.

British rifles clearing the town.

16th lancers leading the charge.

Birds eye view buildings behind the walls mainly from touching history.

British surveying the scene from the battlements.

Rush through the streets.


Horse artillery supporting the lancers.

Foremost figure is from Mutineer minis with an old glory figure behind,some people don't like mixing manufacturers but I think it looks fine.

Sikh's with no where left to run make a last stand.

Cheering on the troops.

The Sikh regulars gave the British a good show.
