Perfect painting and shading and the basing standard quality! Beautiful pieces to play with!

Very nice indeed Roger.  I do like the mailed officer.

I'm hoping to do Mudki next week if I can get the final bits of terrain ready-the bases should arrive by Saturday.  It's a really interesting battle if you follow Amarpal Singh's latest research.

Thanks very much, just about completed a bunch more and starting to think more strategically about actual units rather than jst getting lots of figures painted. Some more uniformed matchlock armed irregulars as a Rajas guard would be a nice addition will have to give it some thought.

Got quite a bit painted over the break, mainly Afghans and Sikh Cavalry now all on their way to the basing department. More details on the blog, I do like the Perry Plastic Afghans though:
