Apols for taking this slightly OT but i'd be interested in info on Afghans (Regulars and Militia) for the 2nd Afghan War - 1900 and in particular on figures. i want to expand my tribes

Hope no-one mind my jumping in

I've got a great link somewhere James. Let me look for it and get back to you mate.... I think it was o Mad Guru's Blog.....

I'll start a seperate thread about Second Afghan War Afghan Regulars- it is done:

http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=76071.0

This thread is very interesting.... I wonder if Empress or anyone of that ilk might be interested in doing the mini's? I know the Empress Jazz Age Imperialism range is set well beyond the Third Afghan War but you never know, they would be unique and probably a decent seller.

Darrell.

The Empress stuff is set bang in the 3rd Afghan war.  Hence the captured mortars, HMGs and Lewis guns.  I agree some militia and regulars would be good

"...and as always, we are dealing with strange forces far beyond our comprehension...."

All limitations are self imposed.  Work hard and dream big.

No conversions (for me at least), Turks with lambswool hats by the sound of it :)

I need to sort Regulars for the 2AW first though
