Those Perry's are something else.They are a real credit to the hobby.

Now, where can I get a Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond in 28mm…?

Oh boy. Atlantic recently released photos of their own 28mm hard plastic Afghan tribesmen, sized to match Perrys. Between old Wargames Foundry, new-ish Perry metals, those forthcoming Atlantics, and this new box of Perry plastics, a gamer can certainly organize basic units of Pathan tribesmen without any two identical figures. And of course the plastic assembly format allows you to make each version of this new box different from the rest. It boggles the mind! Great times for NWF and Second Afghan War gamers. My only complaint is that since introducing these ranges a few years ago, neither the Perrys nor Artizan have come out with any Gurkhas. I'm not asking for obscure exotic Indian army troop types -- just Gurkha riflemen! Still, this is very good news. Thank you brothers Perry!

Looking great! : )

For the most part the clothing on these figures is on the minimalist and non-distinctive side for Pathans; many existing metal figures are clad in much more voluminous and baggy garments, and such unmistakably Pathan/Afghan gear as poshteens and blankets thrown over the shoulder (e.g. the Old Glory figures). I suspect this may be a deliberate ploy to allow these figures to double as later Mahdists in jibbehs.

Hello Henry, these are in the lighter, summer clothing so not so many layers (poshteens or blankets etc.)as I was aiming for Maiwand in the heat of the summer.

Let's hope they will release in 1/72

I'm sure they will see their way into Indian Mutiny hordes as well, both plastic sets enabling the gamer to field authentic hordes of mutineers.

I will probably be using them for the Indian Mutiny as well. Thanks to the lighter clothing they look slightly more 'Indian' or at least enough to represent badmashes and Indian villagers.
An enormous potential! Thank you very much Alan and Michael!

Those look like loads of fun.
