Victorian British in the Sudan 1883-85 (3)

Here's our Victorian British broken down into units as listed in the DBA 1500 -1900 Extensions. The vast majority of uniforms being took from Michael Perry's 'The Sudan 1883-85, A Brief History & Uniform Guide' .

The figures are a mixed bag, some Essex, some Mike 's Models & a few unknowns (If anyone knows the manufacturer then please let me know). The paint scheme on the different Artillery pieces is deliberate, just to let Jack & Amy easy identify them.

Hi,

As usual, you have inspired thoughts of how I could follow in your footsteps here. I tried to view your "Mahdist Sudanese", but the link seems to be broken. Just wanted to let you know. On the other hand, it's also highly likely it's something I'm doing wrong...

Best regards,

Chris

Cheers Chris, thanks for the nice comments. I've adjusted the pix size in the Mahdist Sudanese Post. Give it a try now.

All the Best
