British Division prepares to move up the Nile

This is the last of the images I took of the models my father brought across with him a few weeks ago now. They are a mixture of Qualicast and Raventhorpe 20mm miniatures. I bought these to bolster my colonial cavalry as at that time there were very little good plastic cavalry figures.

I still have a load left to paint - my collection is still along way from being finished, and still Hat, Strelets, Redbox and others are planning to release more figures from this period.

My plan is to one day to build a Russian Army to play out the 1885 Afghan crisis...Stetlets do some great WW1 Russian Cavalry and they are planning to release some infantry from the Russian Turkish all I need is an eight room apartment!! Back to reality!!

I hope you will enjoy looking at the images below...I will finish a few more over the next couple weeks - I hope!

Have a great week - one and all

Egyptian Lancers

Some of my Egyptian cavalry figures brought over the Berlin by my father...sorry about the quality of the images...the Berlin sunlight (in the deep snow) does not really represent the Egyptian desert sun...

I have noticed a few painting errors too...but I hope you all still enjoy looking at them.

The figures are from my small collection of Raventhorpe 20mm Miniatures...the Spahi with slung Rifle has joined the Egyptians and the cavalry are converted from their 17th Lancers (Zulu War 20mm range) with a head swops and a new paint job...

Next will be the Dervish army...
