All locked up and nowhere to go for 12 weeks and classed as exteremly vunerable by the UK government, I have been messing about converting some Jacklex 20mm figures to fill in some gaps in Jack Alexander's large colonial army which Bob Black and I are looking after. If you haven't seen them there also some attempts at Madhist gunners I have made from conversions.

White coated Egyptian infantry, standard bearers and Mahdist artillery outriders to follow for now!

Hope you enjoy

I enjoyed the article. There is much to be said for old school figures .

Thank you both for viewing and posting. Jack has been in hospital for few weeks since falling and fracturing his hip. He is due home later this week. Haven't been able to visit him or speak to him so I am hoping these conversions meet with his approval when we talk at last!

I've always loved these. I don't have too many, but there are some Highland officers leading my plastics.
