Yes I've ordered from there before and always had good service.I have 2 concerns about Askari,one is that the poses are a little stiff and unnatural and two that they are brittle.Your figures look very good.

I've started getting some Russians from Askari. They aren't that bad at all.

This looks interesting. A little out of the timeline of this thread but still will be interesting.  https://www.amazon.com/Central-Asian-Revolt-1916-collapsing/dp/1526129426/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

I have that same problem, then I end up reading five books at the same time jumping back and forth.

I'm surprised that no one has written a book in English about Mikhail Skobelov. One of Russia's top generals in latter part of the 19th century.

Tiger Miniatures (Recreational Conflict in the US) has started making figures for Russian Central Asia.  They have Russian Infantry, artillery and cavalry.   Central Asians include Bokaran infantry, cavalry and militia as well as many other packs.

Anyone know of a book that has the organization of the Russian colonial army in Central Asia from the 1860's-early 1900's? I saw it in a book once but I can't think of what it was.

During the Seventies I had a booklet aimed at wargamers about every possible organisation, weapons ecc...of Colonial Armies from every nations included minor ones..it was probably from Ted Hebert..unfortunatly i've lost the battered photocopies  ...i 'll try to find a copy again...i remenber some good infos on how to build a Colonial Russian Army in Central Asia..Furthermore there was also an article or two on Savage And Soldier magazine, another appeared in a old issue of Wargame Illustrated or Practical Wargame and a very first article on Wargame Newsletter..i'll have a look among my very messy files and paper archives
