Regular followers of the blog may recall that pretty much every years 'Cunning Plans...' post for the following year makes reference to the Indian Mutiny/Rebellion and that "this year" will see me crack on with a project I've wanted to do for three(?) decades having amassed a lot of unpainted white metal for... Well "this year" has seen some progress (largely inspired by Phil wanting to play some Mutiny Sharp Practice games and him buying a load of Empress mutineers).
I've now completed three groups of British line infantry and two groups of skirmishers. The line are mainly Old Glory figures, with a smattering of Foundry and some Empress command, whilst the skirmishers are mainly Foundry, with a handful of Old Glory and a couple of Dixon.
I've gone with a very mixed scruffy campaign look for the troops, based on some of the illustrations I've seen of the 95th (Derbyshire) Regiment in the Central Indian Campaign (though clearly they can be used for many of the British troops engaged in the conflict).
Not sure what will be next, probably be a good idea to paint up some British cavalry...
