The Sikh Wars - reloaded!

As the ACW naval project nears completion, it's time to start the prep work for the next task - rebooting the Anglo-Sikh war gaming project. I've enough figures to game the battles of Mookdee and Ferozeshah, but not enough to do the big decisive battle of Sobraon.

Fortunately, I have a big backlog of figures to work with as a result of having backed Studio Miniatures Sikh Wars Kickstarter campaign back in 2013. The figures arrived at the end of 2013 and have been patiently awaiting paint.

The current task is rounding up all the figures. In addition to the Studio Miniatures figures there are additional figures from Foundry and Old Glory hidden in boxes. The quest begins by assembling and sorting the figures.

This box of odds and ends is mostly Old Glory and Foundry figures. Rocket launchers and camel guns - nothing unusual here. Five stands of painted and based HEIC infantry - a good start!

I've sorted the British back into their respective units, fished out the artillery and a camel gun. More British regulars than I can fathom every needing.

I'd forgotten how much progress I'd made with the Sikhs two years ago.

Assorted British mounted officers. I plan on updating the division command stands with these models from the Old Glory and Studio Miniatures line.
Stay tuned and watch the progress - with luck this project will be completed before the end of spring!
