28mm Terry Carbines?
« on: September 16, 2022, 09:15:46 PM »
A long shot question but you never know what others have done or found!

I am looking for options for separate 28mm Calisher and Terry breech-loading carbines or Westley-Richards "Monkey Tail" carbines for conversions. I am trying to create some quite specific units and am too uptight to let them have weapons that aren't right. Happy to convert figures but making weapons eludes my skills.

Goliad, what period/theme/conflict are you thinking on doing those units?
Im asking because some of those weapons where used by the british and the americans (probably others too) in diferent periods and also with diferent versions.
Being a little more specific may help others, to help you.

Hi Rumacara,

I am looking at these for later New Zealand Wars from mid 1860s to early 1870s. Didn't post on colonial board since it's about the weapon and hopeful that some ACW specialist had wanted some figures with Terry carbines (more interested in Terry carbine.)

I cant remember any specific miniature using the "Terry carbine" but i found this article that might help with units using the carbine.
Sorry for not helping more.

I'd be interested too if you manage to find any of these. What are you doing; Forest Rangers, CDF/RA Cavalry, Kupapa?
I'm not a mercenary. Killing's more of a hobby for me.

@rumacara. Thanks for the link. I had hoped that some ACW buff had customised their JEB Stuart figure with a carbine!

@Matakakea. All of the above! Would like to include a few for Te Kooti and Titokowaru's forces, Kupapa, Forest Rangers and Armed Constabulary. I have got figures, just need to arm them. I will probably just have to either make do or try my hand at modelling them.
