These are all Perry figures. I must say the standard of casting was awful , with lots of worms and lines and some pitting. If I had not had some of them so long in the lead pile I would have sent them back.
On the Baggara I replaced the "chocolate fireguard" bendy spears supplied with the casting with some piano wire one that I shaped the end of into a point and then soldered them in to the riders hands.
I have also completed another leader for them as well
So that's the hard work done for the Sudan - the masses of the Mahdists. Time to move to some colonials .Now of course the 9th Bengal Lancers Hodson's horse were not at El Teb , but i fancy doing something a bit interesting as well. So i am going to be using Peter Gilder figures here - the Connoisseur range ones and doing some full on conversions on the units.
so here is a starter, the soldering iron has been out again. The one on the left is the original casting
