As I started building my Indian Army, I did not have a particular table of organization (TO&E) or conflict in mind; I was picking units that I thought looked cool. As the force slowly took shape, I started focusing on the Northwest Uprising of 1897 1898 and still decided to pick units that looked cool! So don't expect to see the actual Indian Army forces organized by the historical TO&E when the uprising starts. As I mentioned in my last outing, here's what's up:

1. Picking units because they look cool!
2. A controversy of color.
3. Turbans!

Sometimes history just has to take a back seat so we can enjoy! Super job on the troops! The elephant flag? Meh. (Just kidding, nice job there, too! Hate to think what an attempt of mine doing the same would have turned out.)

I had a kick doing the Elephant flag. Not bad for not having a done and elephant since elementary school!

Nice job Old Chap! (In the spirit of Kipling and H.G. Wells.)
This is what tabletop wargaming is all about. Playing at war and "inspired by history."
Three cheers for your armies of empire!
