Evening all, just a quick post this weekend. After last weeks solo battle in 15mm scale, we’ve swapped back to my 6mm Wellington in India project as some of my Mysore Troops arrived.
All figures are 6mm figures from Irregular Miniatures.
For some reason, I was in a painting mood this weekend and so I managed to complete 5 units and was pleased with the results and the quantity that I managed to paint
I painted two units of spearmen, which I’m intending to use as local Levy and irregular troops
I also painted two bases of matchlock men, which I’m intending to use as irregular Infantry. The Indian Armies had large numbers of matchlock armed troops as well as troops armed with flintlocks. Its said that the matchlock armed troops had a greater level of accuracy than those armed with flintlocks.
As you can see these guys are in white tunics with purple turbans and black crossbelts
Finally, I painted one unit of Mysore regular line Infantry, trained and drilled to European standards.
In real life, these guys had a complex tunic that could be purple, pink or other colours, spotted or striped in white, like a tiger. I didn’t fancy that at 6mm scale though so these guys are just in plain purple tunics
If I manage to churn out 5 or 6 units a weekend, I should be ready for my first battle on the Indian Subcontinent in no time at all!
