My final offering to push me towards my target. The British in the Sudan finally get some cavalry support, the rather dashing 10th Hussars. Not a fancy pelisse in sight by this era, but I still think they look fine in their navy striped trousers and spiked helmets. Deployed from India, they were in khaki. This is my first stab at getting the right khaki for the Sudan.
Next up, a captured Mahdist gun with Egyptian gunners. I based the Beja overseer separately as I though he'd come in useful as a slaver in Pulpy games. Also, at a push I may end up using this for somewhat bedraggled Egyptian artillery (ignoring the shackles). Until I inevitably get around to picking up the Krupp from the Perry Egyptian range. I was trying to get hold of some round basing 'holes' to make my own sabot trays for the Mahdists and also mount the overseer snugly on this base. Hopefully they will arrive at some point so I can drop one in and sort the Mahdist unit bases once and for all.
Finally, a couple of test minis: 15mm US paras for Chain of Command. A quick job over a brown undercoat, not much to say.
Lovely work Phil. I'm particularly impressed with the metallics you've achieved with the gun - perhaps a bit too clean considering the crew but, wow, the smoothness of the steel is wonderful. Great job.
This selection of miniatures will give Phil 84 points, exactly enough for him to hit his 700 point target. Congratulations and well done Phil!
