3 Egyptian Officers.

Yes more 28mm Perry miniatures, this time Egyptian Officers on horse back. Clearly of the 1883-1890 period while One does have a drawn sword they are mostly issuing orders and observing troops as opposed to getting stuck in. As with General Hicks (shown 2 posts back) the horses are quite the nicest I have ever seen in this scale for wargaming. The Perry's have clearly been looking at horses to get them this well proportioned.  I have set the first officer leaning slightly to make it appear he is talking to someone on foot or possible a carriage. The other two are sat more squarely on their steeds and look more upright.

I currently have two pieces of artillery and 8 crew that are being painted, And when they are done I will photograph them with William Hicks AND these officers. And that will either be Thursday or Saturday depending on how I get on and also on the painting table is a Wolf Runner for SotTR, which is one of my failed projects that I am returning to.

But back to these. As mentioned they are 28mm in size and part of Matts collection that I have painted for him. So if you see anything wrong in the colours let me know and I can correct it for him before I hand them back on Sunday.

That's it for today. Take care and with luck some more again on Thursday.

All the Best Clint

    1. Thank you Matt. They are very nice sculpts, which makes them easier to paint.

  5. "I hope to Have a couple more SotTR figures done very soon." - Great to see you're still enthused Clint. These are very nice too though, wonderful contrast between the red and blue :-)

  7. I agree with Joe and your good self Clint, the horses are excellent. Loads of companies just stick riders on generic sculpts that imho then detract from the whole figure. Let's face it Generals didn't ride full tilt at anybody so why are the mounted on a charging steed? It's a much neglected part of miniature wargaming.
