From MichaelA: 28mm British Camel Corps & 7lb Screw Gun with Crew (45 points)


Michael sends in this lovely detachment of 28mm Victorian soldiery.

From Michael:
After what feels like two days of non stop painting I've finally completed my first entry!  All from the Perry brothers' Sudan range, we have three members of the dismounted Camel Corps supporting a 7lb Screw gun and crew.  Delighted to get my first points on the board before the Christmas break.


You can almost smell the axle grease, sweat and gunpowder (and perhaps a wafting scent of qabili palao and chutney?).

Beautiful work Michael. These lads with their 'door-knocker' will give you 45 points, officially marking your entry on the points roster. Well done.

  6. Brilliant work. Exceptionally nice work on the faces. I am sure that sergeant is telling them to crack on and put some effort into it.
    Well done.
