British Reinforcements

As is common to all commanders who have just lost a battle I have called for reinforcements to my British army. I felt during the test game that if only I had one more infantry unit, I would have swept the Boers from the field!

I have completed the first batch of figures for the next unit; these are more from the superb Raventhorpe Miniatures range. The British ‘standing at ready’ are BO19 and the officer is BO21. At the same time, I couldn’t resist painting the very nice Boer Commandant figure BO08.

When finished the unit will be nominally designated as the 1st Devonshire Regiment who fought at Elandslaagte.

    1. Thanks Roy, how are your troops coming on?

  2. Nice work there IAN- The Boer War is certainly interesting - and more so with your 1st Devonshire Regt. Cheers. KEV.

    1. Thanks Kev, it is a fascinating period.

  3. The British do need beefing up for all this frontal assault stuff.
