Indian Rebellion: Nusseree Battalion

Well it has taken a few months longer than anticipated to get to the point of playing an Indian Mutiny/Rebellion game but one has been penned in for next week so I'm putting the final touches to a 110 point Sharp Practice force to deal with Phil's Pandies. Joining the 95th (Derbyshire) painted last year we now have two groups of Gurkhas of the Nusseree Battalion (later to be called the 1st Gurkha Rifles).

The figures are from Foundry's old range and although they have been sat unpainted in 'Lead Mountain' for a almost four decades now they are nicely characterful figures, even if the poses are somewhat limited. The black-green uniform is iconic put makes the figures very dark so I gave their caps an off-white linen summer cover for a bit of variety (the only photo of Gurkhas from the Rebellion I've found on-line shows them in white covered caps which was good as it meant I did not have to painted the chequered black/red hat band!)
