My part of the armies required for our upcoming WWI in East Africa game is three companies of Indian Sikh infantry, supported by a couple of heavy machine guns.
The bulk of the infantry are provided by a friend who very kindly painted them and gave them to me as a birthday present nearly five years ago. These are all the Woodbine Design figures, available through Gripping Beast.
Finally I have finished the command stand and the HMGs for this force. These are all Brigade Games figures.
Annoyingly I thought I had three companies each of 12 figures, but I mis-counted and only have three companies of 9 figures so need to order another nine figures to complete the force. They will have to wait until the end of the month since my budget allocation for toys this month is exceeded.
The final item has been on the painting table for a while now. Left over after painting the crew from the Pom Pom gun, this is the officer from the Perry Miniatures Gardner Gun set from their Sudan range. He is used here as a British naval officer on shore duty.
