The Bhyklabad Horse II

I've painted the remainder of the figures from the Brigade Games Indian Cavalry, from their WWI ranges, which I have deployed into the Rhanzlistan Field Force. They are known locally as  "Aston's Scouts", but more properly as 'The Bhyklabad Horse'. Here is the full strength unit, commanded by their newly promoted Major, John Roberts ~

A close up of some of the figures, always a risky choice given my standard of painting, but there you go ~

In addition to the 13 figures of the Scouts, I painted an extra two up to represent Brigadier 'Tubby' Bykleigh and his personal escort ~

Of course, its compulsory for our hero to be mounted on a white horse! I'll probably replace the lance pennon with a Union flag, when I can find out where I put the sheet for safe keeping! I hope that they'll soon be in action to help expel the S.P.I.F.F. from Rhanzlistan, or at least give those darned cossacks a run for their money!


  1. Very pretty, but are they up to facing the Robinski' s red hordes?

    1. Well, we shall find out soon enough, Commrade General...
