Skirmishes on the Frontier
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:15:17 PM »
I have painted some really old Foundry Miniatures models I had in my box, thinking about to use them in games based in my "Third Afghan War" project:









My intention is to put together in my new blog all the information possible for this project, including reference books, rulesets, figures, period pictures, history...
If anyone is interested, this is the link to my blog: http://waziristanonafancy.blogspot.com.es/

Comments are really, really grateful  :).

Great brushwork. ;D
Some of the Perry's best work for Foundry I think.

Very nice! Love the contrast between the earthy tones and the brighter colours/whites.

Thank you a lot.
I agree with all of you; these are some of the best Perry figures. Sadly, they appears to be unable to make more figures with this quality...

Excellent paint job.  The colours are just right for the Pathan.  They still wear the same stuff today, they have just exchanged Jezzails, Lee Enfields and Khyber knives for AK-47 and RPGs.
