Just before the lockdown we had the first largish game with my Sikh Wars collection. Full report and pictures on the blog.

Lovely, what make are the miniatures?

I recognise Iron Duke miniatures (cavalry first and third echelon) A Foundry Officer and I think the Sikhs are from Studio Miniatures?

Thanks for the comments guys.

The Miniatures are a real mix in this project on purpose.

The Sikh regulars are Studio as are some of the gun crews. I also have Old Glory and Foundry Sikh Regulars. Sikh reguular cavalry are Foundry, Irregular horse a mix of Foundry and Perry.

British a mix of Foundry and Perry but also Iron Duke as pointed out. Perry Carlist War Lancers, Foundry British Dragoons on Perry Napoleonic light Dragoon horses, Iron Duke Bengal Light Cavalry and Bengal Irregular cavalry and the Sepoys a mox of Foundry Sikh Wars, Foundry Mutiny and Iron Duke.

Sorry short question and long answer but I hope it helps.

Oh the governer Generals Bodyguard are British Napoleonic Light Dragoon Plastics, I used the late war legs with overalls, the early war torso with the braiding and late War shako with the peak removed a tassel added and moustaches greenstuffed on. Their horses a mix of Mutineer miniatures and Iron Duke.
