India: Mighty morphing volunteer battalions

To get things rolling on my SYW India project I've finished morphing two of my existing units by changing the command bases. Firstly the Monrovians volunteers who will be supporting the French ..

and the volunteers from Wittenberg who will be supporting the British....
The dense jungle behind the pictured units is a raft of plastic foliage for terrariums, each bit can be detached and used separately - so a session of jungle making is on the cards.  Oh and for a bit of light amusement ..
Where did they tell me to meet them for the tyger hunt ?

I have also accumulated all the initial figs and guns for the artillery of the french, british and indians; these are next in the painting queue for my India project.


  1. Nice start on your project, sir.

    -- Jeff

  2. Yes, nicely done. I thought those "French" appeared to be Suren minis. Are the "English" RSMs? The project looks very good so far. - Mike

  3. You also cut the matting into various shaped pieces. That's what I did with mine.

    I like the photo of the tiger readying to pounce on his prey.


  4. Nice figures, and a great idea for the jungle. The photo with the tiger and his future meal is a gem!

  5. JustMike - The french figs are Jacdaw 30mm figs.

    ColCampbell - thanks for the tip on cutting the matting into various shaped pieces.

  6. Nicely done. The volunteers already look 'at home' in this... atmospheric environment!

  7. Pretty funny, your tiger hunt vignette! I couldn't avoid a wide smile at the sketch...
