I was very kindly given a copy of this book to review both here and on Amazon by Charles Singleton of Helion Books. My interest in the Sikh Wars has always been bubbling away under the surface and I also have a bloody large almost finished pair of armies in 28mm that are my first 2018 project to complete. All the infantry and most of the artillery are done, and I just need to do some Sikh Irregular Gorchara armoured cavalry and Bengal Light Cavalry. And some generals etc.
Watch this space. Oh, and the book is excellent.
Gosh, Colin, a Hussarette in (out) of Sikh cavalry armour and robes would look quite splendid - all that flowing black hair........ReplyDelete
Chris. Don't tempt me please........Delete
Yes, well, I know you are weak willed on this subject...........Delete
Now I have always been tempted by this period. I think it comes from reading too many Flashman novels and a v battered little book on the war by Don Featherstone called I think At them with the Bayonets.ReplyDelete
I too have just resurrected my colnials (Sudan), after coming across The Swrd and the Flame Rules - I'd forgotten just how good these rules are.ReplyDelete
Be good to seee= some Sikh wars.
omg Joe. TSATF! We used them lots for our Darkest Africa games iirc. Still have my copy somewhere. They were excellent fun!Delete
