My Ral Partha Pathan "army" has been suffering from a lack of bodies for a very long time, so when Al Maurer of Askari Miniatures http://www.askari-minis.com/ decided to get rid of some of his old treasures, Ral Partha Pathans that he had painted, when, like me, "I could paint them with unaided eyes".
There were 36 painted foot and 1 mounted for just a little more than buying unpainted figures from Great Endeavours http://www.greatendeavours.co.uk/colonials/rp_list.php where I get all my new Ral Parthas, I jumped on them! Since I have 20 figures to a unit with 1 leader included, I ordered a pack of 10 Pathans firing rifles to add to them, and replace figures in existing units that have gone missing over the years.
Al's figures were mounted on 1/2" bases made of card, so I rebased them on 3/4" pennies and washers to match the rest of the army. It was fun trying to match Al's paint jobs and mine from 25 years ago.
So, without further ado, here are the pictures of my 3 tribes.
You may notice that there is no cavalry, and probably won't be. I have Al's mounted figure for the ubergrouppenfuhrer for the Pathans, and that's it. I did have a gaudily painted mounted figure that seems to have gone missing.
These boys will give my Scotties and Indian troops a hard time, as they have already defeated the Indians alone in 2 convention games, without the 2 extra units!
Churchill says that the Pathans had a great fear of cavalry if they were caught in the open, and I'll have to incorporate that in my future Colonial Adventures games.
Thanks for looking, and I will attempt to do better in replying to your comments!
