1st Madras Fusiliers/Neill's Blue Caps (Close Ups Added)

Post by Atheling » Sat Feb 20, 2016 9:13 am

Hi Folks,

Some of my Indian Mutiny Brits; 1st Madras Fusiliers or Neill's Blue Caps as they were known for their striking blue forage cap covers.

Hope you enjoy the pic, I'll certainly be adding more images and some close ups of the miniatures will follow hard on the heals on this pic of Col. James Neill's Blue Caps :)

More pics and history regarding the 1st Madras Fusiliers can be seen on my Just Add Water Blog here:

Cheers,
Darrell.

As always, stunning Darrell, love the idea of gaming the Mutiny,but could not do the era justice with figs needed :wink:

The Iron Duke range is brilliant DB. I recently bought 13 packs of Mutineers with no duplicates!!!

Of course, I've got to paint them first!!

Here's a selection of close ups of the mini's that I've painted thus far (I know, not too many!).

You can read about how they were painted as well as seeing many 360 degree pics (or sorts) on my Just Add Water blog here:

In the meantime here are some pics to hopefully whet your appetitie:
