Last year Wargames Foundry started to re-release some of their older collections and one they should have never stopped was the North West Frontier collection. So when they were again released, last October, I think I may have been one of the first to purchase a whole army these fantastic Afghan Regulars. Then being ‘the best friend anyone can have’ I handed the army over to good old Leroy Simpson. Leroy – bless his cotton socks – has since painted six companies for our colonial madness collections – champion. He is now working on the artillery and cavalry.
The six companies he has painted thus far are three companies of the Herat garrison (the top most image) and three companies from the Kandahar garrison (above). With very little in guidance to uniform colours, Leroy has gone for the most reported uniform of dark brown with red facings. There is however a little evidence that some units may have worn old British uniforms, which Leroy may paint future units in.
