    Its a lovely figure and has the correct, later pattern sun helmet, for this era. Not sure why it hasnt been painted with the patterned puggaree, and, the facings were more towards purple/burgundy than bright red....!(y)

    Hi again Mike,
    With this figure, which is number fifteen in the series, it was planned to put an end to the Indian Army, but due to the great reception it has had, I have decided to expand it, with at least five more figures.

    Excellent figure Miguel. The Indian Army used to be very popular in the 70s/80s but has sadly drifted in recent years. This is a shame as there a so many exquisite uniforms to be modelled using today's techniques. Full marks El Taller for your interest in reviving the period(y)

    Hi Nap,
    Thank you very much, for your words. I receive many comments from collectors that they still find the Indian Army Series very attractive.

    Hi Valiant,
    Thank you very much for your extensive and kind comment, to which I would like to respond with some clarification:
    As specified by A.H. Bowling in his book "Indian Cavalry Regiments 1880-1914", and I quote literally
    "Uniform was drab with facings maroon and lace gold,.........."
    If we accept maroon as dark red/burgundy, the photograph of the figure shows a not so dark red, although the figure, not the photo is closer to maroon. The painter, however, should have got the colour right.
    In relation to the helmet and continuing with what the author says:"The 1901 regulation replaced the old salacot with the new white Kitchener model with a white pagri,......"
    I hope I have been able to clarify your doubts.
    Finally, in response to the excellent image Nap has included, I will say that this image is also in my archives and on researching it, it appears to be a militaria uniform - not authentic to the period - made much later. Something that, in any case, I cannot be sure of.

    Hello Miguel,
    Really like this new figure and horse. I must save and paint faster in order to work through my wish list of your creations.
    Spotted on your website that next in the Indian Army range is a 17th Cavalry figure. I know it is listed as being from 1914, but perhaps you could consider going for a mounted piper. I believe this regiment had mounted pipers. As a Scotsman I am both puzzled and intrigued by this. My source is a small photograph in the Osprey publication Bengal Cavalry Regiments 1857-1914 by Ronald Harris. If anyone has a larger, coloured picture of the pipers and some background detail wold be keen to see both.
    Great Work,
    Yours,
    Lightbob
