These are Foundry figures from their Northwest Frontier range. I am painting half in khaki and half in the dark green for rifles.
These have been sitting around for three years and are still not quite finished! Meanwhile, I managed to acquire even more of these lovely figures (not in picture) that I will need to prime and paint.
I know that rifles regiments normally didn't carry flags into battle but I won't be able to resist putting the Ghurka regimental flag into the already-drilled hands of one of these figures.
These are the excellent Foundry figures from their Northwest Frontier range. I have been sitting on this project for some years now and am pleased that I am finally making some progress.
On my workbench I have about 300 of these figures waiting for my attention. Almost everyone has had some paint put on them but the ones shown are the furthest along at the moment.
The figures will be painted as generic "Afghan" warriors who can stand in for Pathans, Afridis and the like as the case may be.
The pictures were taken with my mobile phone so are not the best quality.
These are very useful one-piece resin castings of "Pirate Cannons" (yes, there is a tiny skull on the gun barrel) from Lewis Davis at Minimi. I cleaned up and painted them in less than 15 mins from start to finish. I have placed a 1/76-1/72 converted Thai figure next to them for scale.
These cannons will be used for the 16-17th century Siamese army (1/72) that I have just started to build. I also have Minimi's "Dragon Cannons" which I will paint up in the same way soon.
