Sikh War Project: Beginnings.

There seems to be somewhat of a trend running here, that being that I only seem to post once a year! I really must rectify that.

I've been working quite a few projects over the intervening months, with my main one now being one I started a couple of months ago: The 1st Anglo Sikh War using Black Powder. Just for Mudki (Moodkee) alone, I'll need approximately 13 "British" Infantry regiments, 6 cavalry, and 10 artillery batteries. So I certainly have a long way to go!

I'm using Newline Designs' 1:72 Sikh War range for this project. There are still some figures missing, such a Bengal Light Cavalry, Gurkhas, command for the British Dragoons, but there are enough there to be able to play some games. Plus the prices are great!!!!

First up for the British are some Generals, Her Majesty's 16th Lancers, 50th and 80th Regiments, 24th and 26th Bengal Native Infantry and a battery each of Bengal Horse and Field Artillery:


And then some Sikh Fauj-i-ain and some musket armed irregulars:


I'm slowly adding more as each week passes and hope to have enough for a game done in about 2 or  3 months.
