I have to say it is really interesting. Far closer fought than many colonial conflicts with modern weapons taking on brave spear armed atives. The Sikh regulars were very good troops and their artillery was heavier and more numerous than the companies. They have really colourful irregulars. The second Sikh War is particularly interestign with the British forces gettign a good kickign (but claiming a victory) in the first major engagement between the main armies. Outside of that though the operaions around Multan saw extensive use of irregular tribesmen and troops of local Rajas by both sides so some really interestign battles can be fought.
