From DaveD - Sudan - Indian Army battallion (320 points)

This weeks submission is the final unit I needed for the Indian army brigade that was was involved in the Sudan. The unit is the 17th Bengal Infantry the Loyal Poorbeah. Its made up from Perry metal figures and has them with covered turbans. It is 60 figures in close order, two seperate officers and a mounted officer. Nice simple khaki colour scheme.

The entire brigade consists of the 17th and 28th Bengal and 15th Sikhs supported by the Queens Own Madras Sappers and Miners.




The Brigade advances in square to counter any fuzzy wuzzies!

This takes me to my original challenge target. I  have one more Sudan unit ready and prepped to complete yet,  and the continuation of the micro tanks.  I don't think i will complete much more than that this year - around 3000 points overall.  The man cave will be shortly going out of commission while work takes place on a new , improved and larger one . Mind I have been having a stock up at the York wargames show this weekend as I did not have any camels left in the pile....there are now camels and a host of other goodies too..

MilesR: BOOOMMM and the clearing smoke has a hint of curry....  Yet another Giant points bomb from DaveD - at this point I think he has more painted Miniatures than troops that fought in the Sudan.  It really is rather impressive.  Nicely Done, Sir!
