The Gurkhas are lovely, but the elephant is quite superb, cracking work Roger. :)

Do it!

I still remember the awesome 28mm aircraft carier you did for VBCW my friend.

Most of the stuff for this project is multi use to some degree. Vast majority of troops (including the Sikhs I have just found out) can be used for the 1st Afghan War and many can also be used for Indian Mutiny

Lookign forward to adding a horde of plastic Afghans to represent the Muslim irregulars that fought for both sides in the Punjab.

Thank you for remembering the aircraft carrier...one of my more loony projects  :D

Indian Mutiny in 28mm has been on my todo list for years...I had a 15mm project when the Dixon range first came out...long since sold off.

The combination of beautifully painted figures on LAF and the wide choice of poses from Iron Duke & Mutineer Miniatures especially is pushing me in that direction...just mindful of having too many projects on the go at the same time...I know that itís one of those subjects that would easily get out of hand once I start.

{edit} Just seen the photos of the Perry Afghan plastics...and that got me wondering about the Gripping Beast Arab Light cavalry Iíve been using for my Game Of Thrones project.....oh damn.... lol

Ditto all of the above! I've got hundreds of Iron Duke Indian Mutiny mini's and have literally only painted up six! Neil's Bluecaps to be precise.

I'm gagging to get into working on them but, like most of us, I have way too much on the go. I'm already thinking three major projects in advance and unfortunately none of these include an IM project as of yet :(

I also love the look of Mike Snook's Iron Duke Indian Mutiny range but have been holding off for years now, as I just have too many other projects that I just can't justify/rationalize moving away from my Foundry/OG Indian Mutiny collection. One day for sure, as Mike's range is well researched, well executed by Paul Hicks, and the Mutiny is just a great period!

I find that Mikes figures actually mix really well with the Foundry stuff. Photos to follow when I base up the Sepoy's in Dhotti but a mix of Iron Duke, Foundry Indian Mutiny and Foundry Sikh Wars works surprisingly well.

For me the beauty of Indian Mutiny is that it lends itslef to Sharp Practice so well. Thirty figures per side is plenty for a game.
