In the Navy

The next unit for my colonial forces was a unit of Naval ratings. The figures are from Perry miniatures, lovely sculpts. I'll use them mainly to support a gatling gun I've also acquired.




This is the 4th completed unit for my force. Just need the last unit of Marines to finish, then some volunteer horse, gatling gun and an artillery piece. Keep me going for a few more weeks, then I can start on some Mahdists.

Very nice work Scotty - I have a similar collection completed many years ago using mostly Old Glory figures - see here for an example https://1808534.blogspot.com/2020/05/last-of-1879-colonial-infantry-and.html

Will you be using Perry plastic figures for your Sudanese?
