These figures have been sat waiting to get painted for ages ! after the rather fiddly conversion work ( see http://tonystoysoldiers.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/a-bit-fiddly.html ) it's nice to see them finished ! . Above we see Major-General Arthur Wellesley and Aide and a couple of Brigadiers for the British - all converted Mini Figs 15mm .
The Regular Battalions of the Mahratta army were trained and officered mainly by the French and so I decided to paint up a couple of bases for the Brigade commanders for these .
There seems to be very little information how these officers dressed - if they wore native or European uniforms ? . I decided to use figures from the Mini Figs 15mm Napoleonic Revolutionary range , the mounted officer may be Napoleon (?) . The foot officer I decided to give a standard bearer as well to fill up the base better . I'm in the process of painting up some more of the Mahratta regulars which will appear here when finished.
