Perfect timing, I've almost finished a batch of Baluchis so I'll have at least one entry  :D

Great timing as I have just started painting the great Empress NW Frontier range.
No.2 Flash



This is the first figure I have painted in over a year.
Hopefully should be able to add a few more.

That is a great miniature.  Beautifully painted. As is the Zulu.

Bravo! Flashy will keep things from getting dull. We'll get him to write an authoritative account of the, uh... particular customs of the native women, Dick Burton Style.

Strictly for private publication and circulation among the expedition members, of course.
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Since I happen to be (still) working my way through the Warlord/Empress British forces for Zulu this would seem a fortuitous expedition.

Well I guess I will have to set the Dark Ages stuff I am working on & dig out some more colonials. Just painted up a bunch in the last couple of months.

Great start guys. Now I have an immediate use for the bargain Ngoni I picked up from North Star with Pulp Alley in mind.

Very nice indeed!

I am really glad to see your painting, Plynkes, as I do not recall you posting any figures since I have been on here.
You have been holding out on us!

Brilliant! I've just been down to Darkest Africa, or Peckham as we call it, for some inspiration  8)
