Boats & Rockets

Hi gents,
Been busy today painting some RHA for the Peninsular war but took these pics while waiting on those drying.These are new additions to the Sikh war collection British navel rocket crews and some more infantry figures.

Empress Miniatures rocket set.

Boats have been shown on here before but thought they would go with the theme here.

I had these added for the Sikh wars collection but think they will do for a few other theatres of war..

Figures painted by the War Office.
You can see these painted as British in New Zealand over at Giles Allison's Tarletons Quarter that's were I first spotted them!
That's all for now.
best wishes


  1. Once again very nice and interactive post!


  2. Very nice Willie. Lovely figures.

  3. They look very nice. Lovely tone on the clothes.

  4. Nicely done, painted, posed and photed in very nice scenery (as always!).

  5. I didn't know the RN were involved in the Sikh Wars, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised: they were involved every where else in the Victorian period!

    Great looking figures beautifully painted and based!

  6. They look superb, I have some of these Empress figures but hadn't thought of using then for the Sikh Wars; this opens up all sorts of possibilities.

  7. Once again, lovely figures in a superb setting.
