Indian Rebellion: Second Regiment Native Infantry, Bengal Native Infantry

Back to the Mutiny and a pile of miniatures that had been sat in the part painted pile for a few months now, but as Phil asked if I had any mutineers to add to his for a Sharp Practice campaign he is playing, I was enthused to finish them and add some native officers.

The rank and file are old Wargames Foundry miniatures. They have been sculpted with worsted wings on the shoulders which means they are either Grenadiers or Light Infantry, so with yellow facings these will either be the 2nd (Grenadiers) Bengal Native Infantry or the 42nd Light Infantry.

The two native officers are Empress models from the old Iron Duke range and scale nicely with the old Foundry models, even if the weapons are more slender.

Hopefully these groups of well-formed mutineers bring Phil some success for his Pandies, something which has been lacking in his recent battles.
