Here is the start of my second of three Irregular Infantry for the game The Men Who Would be Kings (Paid Link) which I am still painting as Pashtuns from the Afridi tribe. I have finished 6 of the 12 figures and I can't do any more until I buy another box of Afghan Tribal Infantry (Paid Link) from Perry Miniatures. As I have mentioned before, the Afridi's are noted as wearing black and blue garments; but from contemporary photos, illustrations and diaries, this is not a hard and fast rule. The team photo also gives you an idea of the variety of combinations that are possible with the hard plastic box Afghan Tribal Infantry (Paid Link) from Perry Miniatures.
The hard plastic figures really allow some creative modeling and vignettes. I'll cover some tips and techniques I learned while I was doing this project in a later post.
