Bengal Lancers on patrol

Connoisseur Bengal Lancers.  These were painted for me many years ago by the clever Gerry Webb from Castaway Arts












As you can see all the figures are from the Connoisseur Sudan range from Bicorne Miniatures.  Some of the horses still need to be replaced as they are still Old Glory figures from the old days when it was hard to get your hands on the originals.  These will be replaced in coming months.

    2. Carlo,
      Mainly PP although my Bengal Lancers and Indian foot are Blue Moon. My friend also gave me a bit of a horde of two dragon miniatures which I think are now o.o.p. Not keen on the regulars but some nice Ansar so I'm basing these ready for painting - another 15 or so bases :)

    1. Thanks AJ - I am hoping to eventually replace the Old a Glory horses with Connoisseur horses this year, especially if James at Connoisseur starts casting up the horses which Peter Gilder made moulds for years ago but have lain dormant for a decade.

  8. Thanks Matt. They certainly look hood battling the brave Hadendowah in the field of battle. Agree with your thoughts on everyone should have a unit, no matter what the theatre.
