Paint Monket Rides again!

 Here are the latest additions to Matts growing Northwest frontier collection. This time as you can see cavalry in British service. Matt has banned (ok Suggested ) that I do not say he is content with these, but that he liked the last lot. So I see no reason he would not like this lot as well.

There are 6 in all. in two separate poses.  I am not totally sure but I think these are more  Foundry given the sculpting and proportions of the figures which are really quite nice.  Please do not take this as a colour guide as I am not sure it should be 100% correct. I think the turbans should need to be a little bit darker and more brown for instance but I like the cream as it works as a nice counterbalance to the drabness of the uniform so I will not at this stage be changing it.

In addition to the swords rifles in holsters can clearly be see. I suspect that this would make them very versatile on the table top able to dismount and defend objectives as well as charge in and cause mayhem.

There are 6 More for me to do at this stage,might be more in the future. So you may expect to see some more before the end of the week. yes I will do a group shot at the end. You always seem to want group shots, and who am I to disagree.

Thanks for looking today. more soon well soonish! So that's it thanks for popping by and more of the same again soon.

Take care, and remember no Bananas were consumed in the painting of these figures. Although I might treat myself to an orange!
 Cheers Clint.

    1. Thank you Roy, I agree, but I do know the turbans should be somewhat darker in reality.

  2. Lovely job Clint!
    Whatever the colour of the turbans in reality, yours look good.
    Did they have any black or white horses?

    1. Thanks Bob, Yes they did have different coloured horses. But different shades of Brown were/are more common. I will probably do a black one in the next batch.

    1. Thank you Joe. I think the colour scheme works but the red on the belt could be a bit righter but when I tried that it looked gaudy.

  7. Nice one, Clint. I think instead of an orange you should treat yourself to a Terry's chocolate orange. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!
