The rule set In Her Majesty's Name has reignited my interested in Victorian Colonial Gaming. Now that Dan Mersey, one of my favorite game authors, is publishing a new set of Colonial gaming rules called The Men Who Would Be King, I am working on units that can double for both rules. I recently was able to purchase many Artizan Design figures from their Second Afghanistan War range so I hastily painted a test figure as a guide for my generic Sikh Regiment.

Nice guide – now I should dig out those unpainted Sikhs and have at them!

Very nice indeed sir!Along similar lines my first few Afghan war miniatures will do double service in the forthcoming 'The Men Who Would Be King' ruleset and in IHMN

Really looking forward to"The Men Who Would Be King"! I dfoubt they will replace TSATF, but always glad to read new rules. Very nice painting too!

Very nice – I have bought some of the same models (as well as some Indian troops from Foundry) for the same purposes – an IHMN group that can also be used for Colonial skirmish. I too am looking forward to Dan Mersey's new rule set. Thanks for the step-by-step painting instructions – I may try this myself.

Very good colour for the khaki. However, did Indian regiments not have leather equipment, rather than webbing?

Very good colour for the khaki. However, did Indian regiments not have brown leather equipment, rather than webbing?
