We have what we call the Preziosi Collection.  http://www.thevirtualarmchairgeneral.com/710-French-Algeria.html It is collection of OOB. I have a large collection of the French ones. Haven't got the British ones. What I want to know if there are any OOB for any of the campaigns/battles for the Russian Central Asian campaigns and if so can you obtain any in English?

 Thanks for the link, S J Donovan! Can anyone give me a size comparison of Tiger Miniatures compared to some of the other 28mm colonial ranges (Old Glory, 1898, Askari,etc)? Such a wide selection for some of the lesser-known and gamed conflicts. Cheers, Deratt

And I believe Old Glory are bigger than 1898 and Askari. I saw different brands lined up comparing somewhere but I can't remember where.

Starting to get some more Russians sculpted. Get a few more done and then some more French/Senegalese. Then some Central Asians.

I received these 2 figures, now I have to get them painted.  I have a small project I'm getting done then I will be back. Would like to do a few more poses. If anybody has a idea for a pose please post it.

in my idea you could, maybe, have made an open handed Central Asian mounted Warrior with separated arm with sword/musket..in that way you will have 50% of your diorama actors done...Horse you can use, if the rider is made compatible, tons of types in 1/72 plastic from plenty of manufactures..for the Russians, if you really need another pose,  maybe again an open handed guy in relaxed/standing pose to use both as artillery crews and additional infantrymen..cossacks: you can use Strelets Russian types both from WW1 and early ranges...artillery pieces: again  plastic, at you chosen scale of 1/72 they are OK..foot tribesmen: in my opinion not necessary above all for a diorama..but arab types with swapping of heads (Strelets early cossacks)or milliput converted heads could be OK

Got this article I thought would be interesting, A little pricey but I'm not going to make a habit buying access to these articles but I thought I would give it a shot. I had 48 hours to download it, which I did. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/0968344517723373

I have no information on the banners of the Russian troops used in campaigns. I can assume, by analogy with the period of the First World War, that the "striped" flag is the flag of the army headquarters (in our case, the expedition).

The second flag depicts the personal flag of General Mikhail Skobelev, but this is how it looked, apparently, during the Russian-Turkish war. During the Akhal-Teke expedition, this flag looked different:


I wonder if the flags on the expeditions looked something like this one?
