2nd Battalion 60th Rifles (Kings Royal Rifle Corps) Battle of Kandahar / Battle of Baba Wali – 1 September 1880


Building this unit for Mad Guru's 140th Anniversary of the Battle of Kandahar 1880 game.

For this project I decided to start with a unit of 28mm British colonial infantry, one of the plastic Perry Miniatures kits that I had gotten from a friend. These were already built and painted but needed touch ups, re-basing, and changes to make them the 2nd Battalion 60th Rifles – Kings Royal Rifle Corps 1880.

Here's the blog post;

I swear I thought that officer was 54mm. Those are amazing. Nice painting.

PaulCollins: I thought the exact same thing! Awesome work, Jeff! That officer and his entire unit looks splendid on the table, and pretty much exactly like our best guess of how the 60th Rifles (KRRC) looked at the real battle. Thanks so much for sharing them!

So,black putters for officers and khaki for O/R? 👍

@Royston Papworth, a very dark Blackish Green for Officers and khaki for OR. I did another Officer with the same Black / Green for the trousers which they wore both jacket and trousers in that dark green almost black uniform in the Zulu war and possibly in Egypt in 1882.

Thanks for all the positive comments, these were a lot of fun to do. However the basic figs were already painted by someone else, I just transformed them, touched them up, and rebased them. Still very time consuming, but not done from Scratch.

Next post is about the 3rd Sikh's which I also did for Mad Guru's recent mega Epic game The 140th anniversary of the battle of Baba Wali / Battle of Kandahar 1880.

Very nice. They looked very good on the table Jeff. Too bad we Afghans couldn't finish them off.
