Some years ago, at one of the HMGS East conventions, the giveaway for all attendees was a small sprue of four or five 25mm plastic British colonial figures. Most of the HAWKs handed me their sprues, because they didn’t do any colonial gaming in this scale and thought I could use them in a GASLIGHT game. I painted several GASLIGHT units in red jackets to use for service on Mars.
As noted in earlier posts, I’ve been picking away at my unpainted lead (or in this case plastic) collection. So, to finish off these free plastic figures, I decided to paint them for service in the Northwest Frontier. The sprues only came with rank and file, so the officers, standard bearer (currently missing a flag), and other special figures are Empress Miniatures, ordered from Age of Glory.
