Iron Duke Miniatures Sikhs
« on: June 17, 2018, 09:21:50 PM »
After the two Sikh Wars every battalion of BNI had up to a hundered Sikh Infantry incorporated into their ranks.
I love the big turbans and bushy beards on these figures they make them stand apart from the Regular Sepoys.
I've painted them with black and green facings to try to show they are made up from two different Regiments.
The unit is eight figures strong for Sharp Practice and I've painted four regular Sepoys to take the unit up to twelve for TMWWBK rules.

Beautiful work! How did you achieve such a crisp white?

Thank you all for the kind comments :) they really are very much appreciated.

Beautiful work! How did you achieve such a crisp white?

I think I must have been asked this a good half a dozen times now, I've got some of the ID matchlock men to do soon and I'm thinking of doing a stage by stage picture tutorial if people think it would help.

Other than that if you look closely at the figures you will see that the trousers have a darker crease than the turban, that's because I've used four levels of paint on the trousers and only three on the turban.
The paints used are:
GW Dawnstone
CDA 236 horse tone grey
CDA 211 light grey
And Vallejo white
For the turbans lighter creases I left out the Dawnstone.
I haven't mixed any paints and just used straight from the tub so to speak.
I hope that helps 👍😀

Very good.

Clean and very "sharp" painting.  A pleasure to see.
