When I started re-basing my Indian Mutiny collection I came across some packets of figures I'd never got around to painting . I believe the figures were bought when Foundry used to do deals - so that shows how long I've had them !.
It's nice to be able to pick a brightly coloured unit to paint and these are the 1st Belooch N.I.who remained loyal to the British .
Early in the Mutiny the British forces lacked cavalry and solved this problem by using civilian volunteers and the displaced officers from the mutineering Indian regiments.
Here are a selection of Foundry mounted officers representing 'Rowbottom's Mosstroopers' as featured in George McDonald Fraser's - 'Flashman in the Great Game' , which I am rereading at the moment . I was shocked to find it was first printed in 1975 ! - that's 40 years ago ! but still a brilliant read !.
