I was particularly pleased with the end result of the tartan -
The York and Lancs were shipped into the Sudan from further east still wearing thier India Service pattern uniform. This is a somewhat less complicated uniform with less webbing ,packs , or pugarees - and they are all khaki, This whole unit took about the same time as the kilts on the Gordons did!
while doing the photographs for these I took the opportunity to get the rest of the foot, artillery and baggage train out to get a group shot. - so here it is in high resolution. Hmm I may need to get some more Mahdists..
My replacement soldering iron has turned up so work can start on the conversions for the 10th Hussars. I want to do some more skirmish stands and I have some Naval Brigade infantry companies to do too.
The man cave has had a serious tidy up and is ready to go again
