Having got so far through the OOB for El Teb with the last 3 submission I decided to take advantage of a few days off and press on with the remaining foot units required. All Perry 28''s a mix of plastic and metal. A little more twiddly bits on some patterns on the clothing and headwear this time though. 84 foot figures,3 mounted and 1 gun. Skirmishers hiding in the long grasses, one rifle warband , one spear armed warband, a captured Krupps gun and and crew, and 3 new mounted leaders including Osman Digna,
And a couple of pictures of the whole army as it now stands.
A few small mounted elements left to complete for the Mahdists, they are on the preparation table now. The Desert Column is in serious need of reinforcements - I have the lead cleaned and ready to go, and I have my eye on a Nile Steamer. Its been such a busy few weeks I have now run out of bases and tufts! A large restock required.
Phew.. right, off to give the paint table a good tidy up!
Fabulous work Dave! I really like your sabot bases with the terrain inserts - very posh indeed.
The final shots of the entire force are gobsmacking. As you say, now on to their poor opponents!
These lads will give Dave 460 points to add to his tally.
