TMWWBK - 18th "Royal Irish" Regiment

I have finally launched into some stuff for "The Men Who Would Be Kings".  Starting on the Northwest Frontier/2nd Afghan War with these twelve lads of the 18th "Royal Irish" Regiment.

I hemmed and hawed for several months on what scale to do my colonial gaming in, and ALMOST went 28mm.  But.  Then I had a look through my lead mountain, and the Plastic Soldier Review website and decided that the cheaper, easier to store, and just as effective route was through 20mm or 1/72.  

This batch are 1/72 ESCI British Infantry and I think they look ok.  Finding the right shade of tan was a pain in the ass, as you may note from the Officer and Bugler being slightly "off" shades from the others.  They were my test figures and I didn't feel like re-painting them.  The officer I'll explain as; Freshly arrived from England, he purchased his uniform himself somewhere in India. Works for me anyways.    

Now to work on opponents, and terrain.

  1. The colour difference is not that noticeable in the photo. You certainly won't notice it while enjoying gaming with them.
