12 January 2016 - Sikh Wars:
Many years ago I remember reading Donald Featherstone's book "All for a shilling a day", telling the story of the 16th Queen's Lancers during the First Sikh War of 1845-46. There were also some excellent articles in the wargames press covering the conflict as well. I never got any further than planning my armies (in 6mm, yes it was in the days when I had no money but good eyesight). Then a couple of years ago Studio Miniatures ran a Kickstarter for a new Sikh Wars range. This coincided with a rare and short moment of affluence so I signed up, putting my pledge to one side.
