Dated: February 12, 2010.
To add variety to the artillery for my Army of India I decided to convert one gun crew to represent the Indian artillery. To accomplish this I swapped their heads and trimmed off their trouser legs then painted on puttees. The officer's puggaree came from the ones included in the Mounted Infantry kit, which I fixed in place with a pin until the glue was fully set.
Also in these pix you will see an British general with his staff, two cavalry officers and an orderly-bugler. The general is from HaT's Gatling Gun kit, Indian officer and bugler are converted from Airfix ACW figures, the British officer was taken from another manufacturer.
