Men of Harlech


 Men of Harlech, march to glory,
Victory is hov'ring o'er ye,
Bright-eyed freedom stands before ye,
Hear ye not her call?

The first unit I have done for Dan Mersey's upcoming The Men Who Would be Kings is complete.  The unit is based on the 24th Regiment of Foot for the Anglo-Zulu War.  This will not be the final composition of the unit as I am sure a bugle will eventually replace either Chard or Bromhead.

The figures are from the following Empress Miniatures/Warlord Games range: British Infantry Standing - To ZWB05, British Infantry Standing - To ZWB21 and The Heroes of Rorke Drift Hollywood version ZWB29.  The figures are mounted on wooden bases from Litko.

Thou, who noble Cambria wrongest,
Know that freedom's cause is strongest,
Freedom's courage lasts the longest,
Ending but with death!

Upon their soil we never sought them,
Love of conquest hither brought them,
But this lesson we have taught them,
"Cambria ne'er can yield!

In addition these fine chaps will find themselves serving as The Queen's Own African Rifles as part of the universe of In Her Majesty's Name

"You heard The Doctor!  Protect the strange blue box at all costs!"
