Hi Cod !

For Muslim indians circa 1510 the GB Timurids are good , the Indus miniatures (very pretty minies) are too late i think !

But the Hindu militia bowmen could be very interesting , and maybe the elephants and moreover the crew !

I will consider buying some of these !

For the light hindu cavalry , i could buy some Foundry , and for civilians too ...
Yeah, most of their minis are about 200 years out of date for your project but the Pindari cavalry is generic enough that they might work as well.

Yes , very interesting for the Nayars !

Note that Genevieve Bouchon a French specialist , wrote that in wartimes , Nayars had long hairs & beards , and wears "silk" jackets ...

Thats why i think about Foundry Baluchis ...

But the Hindu militia swordmen from Indus Miniatures could be OK too i think ...

So far...so splendid. Hope it continues for a LONG time.

The next step for the Adil Shâh palace

I think i will make two version of the roof top : one with a dome (for purely muslim city) and one with shingles (for Persia or India)

I will make a little garden in one portion of the inner court , with a basin , a fountain , some palm trees ...

I could use these building for WW1 / RCW in Mesopotamia / Persia / Turkestan too (Ex: DunsterForce)










Sill waiting for my Black Tree Design order for Adil Shâh trrops , hope this will be not too long   :)

To be continued ...
