28mm Colonial Brits

A few of the fellas at my club suggested Playing "Death in the Dark Continent", I'd had a copy of the rules from the Nickstarter and went for a generic British Imperial force using List 68 British in South Africa. As these are high quality troops you don't get many for your 300 points which also meant quicker painting!
I'd decided to use Perry Plastics and although not strictly correct went for the Sudan/Afghan box as well as the new Perry Zulus for a native contingent.
I've painted these as quickly as possible using a wash technique so they're not up to my usual standard but I'm happy enough with them.
They're based for DitDC so all on 60mm x 30mm bases, the force consists of a Commander/chief stand, 2 units of 4 bases of Elite British Infantry and 4 stands of native contingent.

The full force all 284 points

More 20mm Falklands scenery

The battle for the schoolhouse at Goose Green has necessitated a purchase from my local model railway shop. Faller HO playground

A classic photo of John Geddes low under some swings

 An interesting conversion possibility
Whilst in the shop I saw these reduced and thought they may be appropriate
Force on Force is looking favourite for the engagement, update to follow.
