Sudan Project part 11 - The Egyptian Brigade
Shall we get back into the wargaming groove...I think so !
Over the last few weeks I have been steadily painting up my forces for the upcoming Sudan project - it is my desire to see this on the table by March. So today I am introducing the Egyptian Brigade - this consists of two regular battalions of infantry, a cavalry regiment and supporting artillery.
previous post on this project can be found here
There will be a couple more commanders (still waiting on these to be finished)
All the figures are from the excellent Perry Sudan range
These have all been given the same basing treatment as my other forces. The tufts have been sourced from warpainter on ebay
Unfortunately my block painting and dip doesn't work too well with white uniforms but I am too long in the tooth to change my habits now.
The jolly sky blue trousers sported by the cavalry were inspired by some other gamers blog (apologies cant remember name) and whether or not they are correct I like them
The Egyptians get their own artillery support. The MDF bases is 5cm x 10cm
The two infantry battalions are made up from the firing line figures in Perry's range with one command pack split between the two units. The officers have been given the blue uniforms.
Its likely that this will be one players command in our upcoming games
