Mahratta War Command Figures.


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.

  2. Rather getting back into painting 15mm figures, but they do not have the presence of 40mm ones, Tony

  3. Great work...I do like the Minifigs 15mm Revolutionary characters. Not sure I could do 15mm now but might have a go.

    1. Not sure if I would want to paint an entire army in 15mm now - but don't mind finishing bits and pieces , Tony

  4. I've never cared for 15mm, but those are some very nice work. I don't envy you the job.

    1. My days of collecting mass 15mm armies are I think over - much prefer painting 28mm or 40mm , Tony
