Its been a switch over to the Colonials for the Sudan.I had decided to make an effort on dealing with the support elements first.
For the desert column I really wanted a decent amount of animals. So here we have a further addition. It's a screw gun carrying camel set, a 5 camels one rider, and 3 stores and water carrying mules and Sikh guards (I picked them up second hand unpainted pretty sure they are Connoisseur.)
There is also a full shot of the supply column - total: 15 camels , 3 mules. Well it sure gives the square something to protect.
I also picked up some second hand painted Connoisseur naval brigade and guns.
So here is the first reworked one - 5 figures which I decided to repaint from scratch, the gun was pretty much done already so no points there.
Wonderful! As you say Dave, these baggage camels and mules will look perfect in the middle of a collapsing British square. I love all the assorted baggage and equipment festooned on these poor beasts. Very characterful stuff. I also really like the shots of the Gardner Gun fending off the tribesmen - brilliant!
These assorted camels, mules and Naval ratings will give Dave 165 points. Well done!
