Anglo Sikh Wars 20mm

I've had an interest in the Sikh Wars for some time now and after reading Amarpal Singh's book on the first Sikh War I decided to take the plunge and put an order in from Newline Designs. Unfortunately the Newline range is not yet complete so I've had crack at converting some figures to fill the gaps. the first are some Tumbling Dice Crimean War British dragoons converted to a unit of Bengal Light Cavalry. this involved removing the jacket turn backs and the shako peak then filing the shako with a rounded file to give it more of a 'bell top' look about it. The officers shako is a Newline Sepoy head with a peak and plume added with greenstuff.

Newline Sikh Regulars with Yellow Turbans

Newline Sikh regulars Green Turbans, the flag was taken from google images and worked on using paint to add details etc, no one seems to sell decent Sikh wars flags for 20mm figures which is a shame, hopefully Studio miniatures will rescale the flags they and save a lot of time on the computer.

Perry Cape Wars

I finally succumbed to the Perry Cape Wars figure. The books arrived on Saturday and I painted these two  over the weekend. This figure is a freebie that comes with the two books and represents Lt Col John Fordyce of the 74th highlanders and the second is a figure from the Xhosa command pack. All in all nice figures and relatively easy to paint; now all I need is the list for Sharpe Practice and I can get some more ordered.
