For my core Afghan/Pashtun Tribal force I am building 2 units of Tribal Infantry, 3 units of Irregular Infantry and one artillery gun to reflect my representation of the uprisings on the Northwest Frontier in 1897 to 1898. I like the alternative basing method of 3, 2, 1 for The Men Who Would be Kings , which allows me to create mini vignettes with the basing, and allows me to organize the figures that way when I paint. What I have been doing is painting half of a unit at a time – units that don't have standard uniforms take longer to paint since I can't really do an assembly line.

Well done. I like The Men Who Would Be Kings and the NW Frontier in particular. Thanks for sharing.

The wandering Mongol advises those Afghan "irregulars" that fiber in their diet can work wonders. wink

P.S. I adore the theme of this project, really fun stuff!
