Clive in India or 18th Century (1740-84)

Photo Above: Seven Years War British Bengal and Madras sepoys with officer by 1st Corps.


Photo Above: British 39th Foot as they might have appeared at Plassey. 1st Corps Seven Years' War on the top row with one of Ian Croxall's generic Marlburian British standards from his excellent "Warflag" page, and Rafm "All the King's Men" grenadiers on the bottom.


Photo Above: 18th Century Naval Landing Party -- could be either British or French, but I have a British captain at top right, with the Order of the Garter since I couldn't find a better figure! These are conversions from the Old Glory Pirate range with the exception of the officer, which is 1st Corps. Doesn't that long-haired tar with the blunderbuss look like M. Depardieu?


Photo Above: 18th century Indian horsemen from the Foundry Sikh Wars line, with Maratha horses from the Falcon UK Wellesley in India line.


Photo Above: Indian or Afghan artillerists by 1st Corps with a Foundry Sikh gun.


Photo Above: Lyzard's Grin Sikh Wars irregular Matchlockmen, some of the best of the Lyzard's Grin line, in my opinion.


Photo Above: Indian Seven Years War Indian matchlockemen by 1st Corps. Note the leader's French-style uniform.


Photo Above: Mysore regulars by Redoubt - tall fellows for South Indians, but still nice figures (and the only ones available!). You've gotta love the uniforms - who else would march bravely to battle dressed in royal purple?


Photo Above: Mysore regular artillerymen in those strange polka-dotted uniforms, and irregular rocketmen all by Redoubt.

Photo Above: British Infantry by Foundry


Picture Above: Bengal and Madras sepoys with officers by Foundry.


Photo Above: Gurkhas converted by painting Foundry Opium Wars British green.


Photo Above: The 12th Lancers in all their glory. Too bad they didn't ACTUALLY serve in Afghanistan (I learned after I painted them -- oops!).


Photo Above: Honourable East India Company Bengal Horse Artillery by Foundry with an Old Glory AWI gun.


Photo Above: British Infantry by Wargames Foundry. The right and middle ones on the top row are Sikh Wars figs, the rest are from the Opium Wars line. The flag is another one from the splendid "Warflag" site.

Maori Wars 1845-48 & 1860-72 in New Zealand

Photo Above: 1840s British Infantry taken from the Foundry Sikh Wars line.


Photo Above: 1860s Maori Wars British infantry from Old Glory converted by filing to the historical cap shape.


Photo Above: More 1860s British infantry, this time from the Foundry Indian Mutiny line. These figs are wearing knapsacks, which one has to overlook. A painting conversion.


Photo Above: Forest Rangers with a Militia officer, all by Old Glory.


Photo Above: NZ Militia (barefoot) and Kupapa Maori by Old Glory.


Photo Above: Pakeha Armed Constabulary figures from Eureka Miniatures. Probably the best of the Eureka Maori range so far, they look ready for a trek into the Ureweras. On the far right are some "characters" I plan to use for the Turuturu-Mokai scenario outlined on this web site -- Lennon, the canteen keeper, from the Old Glory "Wagon Train settlers" pack, and Captain Ross, stumbling out of bed - a conversion of the James Bowie figure from the Cannon Fodder Alamo line.


Photo Above: Later Maoris with shotguns by Old Glory.


Photo Above: Maoris by Lizard's Grin. Less well sculpted than OG, but I think they have a little more character.


Photo Above: Maoris with traditional weapons, looking very savage, converted from Eureka. Chief is by Lyzard's Grin.
