Now this really grabs my attention, I have a long standing interest in the First Anglo-Burmese War. Good luck with the range!

There is a second fig being sculpted as we speak, there is a list of the proposed figs on the FB 19thC War Games and Warfare group. This list will have some tweaks.!

Nicely done by Steve. Lovely work Geoff once more on an esoteric period that captures the imagination for gaming/collecting.

Cheers,

Helen

The latest green is that of a Laos Spearman used by Burmese as mercenaries although could be used as a Siamese Marine, he wears traditional cloth helmet with gilt spike and decoration to cloth edges.

I am very interested in obtaining a few units of these figures.  I could help out with the costs of sculpting. 

If that is still a viable option, please contact me at chicklewis(AT)aol.com

I have painted a unit of 40+ of the Pontoonier figures, and would love to expand the army. 

Thanks in either case.

Some of these greens would cross over for use as Dyaks and/or Moros with little or no mods.

Briefs have been written for a Laos levy Spearman, no sword in cloth cap and a Southern Laotian levy musketeer, bare headed armed with Vietnamese musket.. Information is based on 19thC temple wall  Paintings along with descriptions from obscure Laos and Siamese texts...the briefs are an amalgam and accordingly the troops will be generic....if anyone has any detailed info I would welcome it, the info contained in the Ian Heath book is predominantly based on illustrations and photos from the latter part of 19thC., pre 1850 info is scarce and open to interpretation!.

The latest green in The Beyond The Pagoda range is a Laotian /Siamese Levy Spearman , the ref material was based on a display at Surin, Thailand along with various Lao 19thC temple paintings...
