Can't see for the Elephant Gun Barrel but if the Lady is holding a cup of tea then it's the Foundry, any help?

She is from Foundry. She's called Elly McCabe from OW3 Characters 1 (according to the old Victoriana Catalogue). She seems to be OOP though.

Thank you, guys.

David just presented his German forces. Although the German faction had requested not to translate their description, we decided to ignore them. This is still Her Majesty's colony and will remain so till the end of times! Her Majesty's subjects, be it Englishmen or Gumbanese, will never be forced to speak German!



Translated from the Ellenberger Anzeiger:

The German Kaiser issued an expedition to Gumba under the leadership of Generalfeldmarshal Alfons von Ellenberg. It's purpose it to secure a safe harbour for the German Navy and German trading vessels, civilise the savages of Gumba according to German standards and, last but not least, to satisfy the need of the German people for German Bananas.

After landing in Sumbadu and establishing the Headquarters there, the expedition is to get an overview of the Gumbanese countryside. An inch by inch civilisation process is to take place immediately after that in order to motivate the native workforce to act according to their best interest and the interests of the German Kaiserreich.

Besides some German troops accompanying him, Alfons von Ellenberg has recruited native Askari soldiers to support him on his mission.

I think there will be a battle report with both the germans and belgians involved soon.
I will play a game against my brother early next week and I hope we can take some pics.  ;)

My first Sikhs are now done. Finally had some time to paint and I am happy with them. :) I am now a big fan of the Foundry Eastern Skin triad. Although I gave them a reddish wash at the end to make the colour a bit more lively.

Fabulous painting on those Sikhs...!!
Those models are so good aren't they? I've just dipped a bunch of 'em and they even look good without the extra highlight I always apply after dipping!!

Thank you for your kind words, guys! The miniatures are great indeed, although Foundry has let their molds deteriorate. Thankfully that's only really visible around their water-canteen.

@H.M.Stanley

Do you mean my use of German Askari for my Brits? :D Well, this is only a temporary solution as I will be painting more Askari that would suit my faction a bit better. I had once started a German force for an older campaign, but somehow I ended up with the British. :) Not that I am complaining... The Sikhs are ridiculously versatile after all.
