Test Pieces

I wanted a few figures to use as Bhurpa warriors in Pulp-style games rather than conventional wargames. I did n't think either the Foundry Hill Tribesmen or the Empress Pathans were quite 'Pulpy' enough, then I saw these 'old' Britannia figures on the Grubby Tanks stand at Colours. I think they'll do just fine, but I'd be interested in other folks' opinions...

I think there are several more poses in the range, so I'll probably pick up some more figures next year to add to the project. (At present though I'm painting Oshiro buildings for my Great Detective game, as I can't face the last Sikh  Indian Infantry unit from Copplestone Miniatures so soon after the Muslim unit. I do really think he should have tried to make the figures a little more varried. But, then again, he's not noted for his prodigious output really...)


  1. They look great. May have to buy some myself!

  2. Thanks, Steve! They paint up well I think.
