Hat Indian Colonials

Like many of their latest 20mm figures I think the Colonial War Indian Infantry are simply a joy to customise and paint.

I moved the standing figures heads, who are loading their Martini's, 90° to the left to get the effect.

The Officers are from the Waterloo 1815 Anglo-Egyptian Army...
The link for their review on PSR is here...
...fortunately there is an excess of officers in the set, which although could be seen as an issue works very well with the officer 'less' figures of Hat.

I wanted my infantry officer to have Gauntlets I borrowed a few arms from Italeri´s set of Confederate Cavalry
