KenR : 28mm WW1 Sikh Infantry (190 points)


After last weeks entry of 'Hindu' Infantry this week I have finished another Battalion of Indian Infantry but this time I have used the Sikh head option.


Organisation is my standard 2 Fig HQ with 4 x 8 Fig companies and a HMG base. Which has has regularly bagged me 190 points this Challenge so another 190 should tip me over my target for this year.


Figures if you aren't already aware are from Woodbine Design Company which is an offshoot of Gripping Beast. It's a fantastic range for the period and has certainly made gaming WW1 in the East a lot easier, although as the have said before the range still sadly lacks a Cavalry option.


So with a couple of weeks to go I hope to get a couple more entries in before close of play, on the table at the moment are some WW1 Turkish Cavalry and some WW2 Desert vehicles whilst the last prepped unit I have of WW1 ANZAC troops stands by in reserve. Lets see who makes the end of Challenge photo !


These are absolutely smashing Ken!  I'm a huge fan of using different parts to make armies look nicely mixed and using the different head options on this and last week's options ticks a couple of boxes - showing diversity on the table and showing the variety of troops who fought in the conflict.  Up to the usual high painting standard and 190 points as with your other submissions - and excellent work on powering past your target!

  4. Great looking Sikhs Ken. Bad luck to be in the queue right next to Greg's stupendous looking Byzantines but these are every bit as good.

  6. More excellent figs shot against some truly splendid terrain!

    The Challenge has certainly advanced your WWI ME project, and it's been great to watch the collection grow. Well done, Ken!
