The first will be a few figures I've painted for colonials.
Ral Partha Highlanders. I always swore that I would never paint these figures because of the details on the jacket and kilt. So I cheated, khaki jackets, and only one horizontal line on the kilt. I also snipped the officer's sword from his pith helmet and put it into what I feel is a more natural position.
And now the mounted officer. The figure supplied is the one from the Zulu war command pack, so I cut off his head and replaced it from an unfortunate Highlander extra figure. I also moved the sword arm, but you can't really see that in the photo. I call these the 52nd RKO Highlanders (after "Gunga Din").
Now all I need to do is remove the rifles from the hands af a few figures to have the Higlander artillerymen used in Gunga Din. I've go plenty of elephants, so a pack of Gatling guns from Creative Endeavours, and I've got one to mount on the elephant, and one for battle!
These are in a 20-man unit to fit Colonial Adventures, or The Sword And The Flame.
Since 2 sets of command came in the command pack, I have another 20 to paint!
