I like OG figures, a lot and not just because they're relatively cheap, at £1 a foot figure, but because they are well proportioned and full of character too.
|Five Egyptian infantry variations of pose and some of the differences within each pose|
Just the five bags if foot and a single bag of cavalry !
Three bags of Egyptian Infantry gave me 90 figures, of which 72 are rank and file and 18 and ensigns, officers and buglers.
|Some (slight) variations in the Officers /NCOs (obligatory blurry pic)|
|The Brits, showing a similar variation in poses.|
|The Egyptian cavalry, sans lances ! (slight variations)|
Two Bags of British, from the Boer War range (same uniform for the later Sudan War) gives sixty rank and file (I already have their bag of Officers and NCOs (and a small corps of drummers and buglers), which when combined, will give me 3 Units of Brits.
The final bag is Egyptian Cavalry containing a mere 10 figures (I need twelve for a unit ), which will be combined with four random OG Egyptian Cavalry I bought in an Ebay job -lot !
I did however forget to buy the lances (not included, which will be rectified at Battleground (or scratch-built).
|The Lancers' horses - great variations !|
|My "extras" - note the same horse as above with the same broken off tail !|
|Pre-prepared bases (obligatory boring pic)|
By Sunday evening I had prepared the infantry sufficient to mount them on bases - luckily I already had two hundred or so all ready !
In-between being ill, visiting hospital and having a grandson;s first birthday to attend I think I did rather well getting anything at all done !
This week sees another Hospital visit (!) which, along with the dreaded Xmas preparations on the horizon is set to interrupt hobby 'work'.
That's it then for this week, one in which I had little to no hobby related efforts to post about, I'm now going to attempt to catch up on my blog commenting, which has sadly been lacking of late.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
