Thin Blue Line

Well two days ago I had a thin red line of British colonial troops in Red tunics on foot. And now some cavalry to make a very thin blue line. Again 10mm Pendraken figures from the Zulu wars range. Yet again I will use these as both Zulu wars and Sudan figures. Indeed they should get an outing tomorrow at the club where they will be acting as scouts for the British and not as cavalry.


They were not an easy paint but very rewarding. As before 2 figures were pre-painted by the guy I bought them from on eBay so I have tried to colour match them. It has been tricky to colour match them, but in the end I am happy with them.  

Not really too much to say about these as there were only 10 of them. It is worth noting that while they are all armed with swords and carbines there are two different posses one carrying a carbine and one carrying a sword. Pendraken packs should be 15 figures for mounted troops and yet there are only 10. I guess the guy has a few dotted around his home. No worries from my point of view. As I got them all as a job lot and still came out ahead.









Additionally to the Cavalry there were also 5 mounted officers. As before one was painted and only needed touching up where it had been rubbed and scratched in Transit. I will say that the figures I received from the guy were all very well painted in the first place so that has made it easy to just touch them up and then re-varnish so as to make them table ready.

That's it for today. I should be at the club tomorrow despite the fact that it's Easter Sunday. So happy Easter and talk again soon. All the best Clint

    1. Cheers Joe I will admit to being chuffed if that is not a sin. But more importantly I really am enjoying painting them.
