24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot, 1:72 Figuren ESCI P-212

Offiziere und Soldaten des 24th (2nd Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot in der Schlacht von Isandhlwana. In 1881, the 24th Foot became The South Wales Borderers. The Figuren are wearing the British 1871 pattern valise equipment, und they are armed with Martini-Henry breech-loading rifles which were introduced in the same year. The troops are mounted on 38 × 29 mm infantry stands Kompatibel mit Fire and Fury und Complete Brigadier game systems. Multi-figure stands like these are also suitable for The Sword und the Flame (TSATF) und similar skirmish wargame rules which are normally played with individual Figuren representing three to five men. These ESCI Figuren may be painted khaki to represent British infantry of the Second Anglo-Afghan War or Sudan War.

Highly detailed Figuren. The 1871 valise equipment und weapons are accurately sculpted. The Figuren look very nice when painted.

With the exception of the officers, none of the Figuren show the typical cuff lace of the full-dress uniform. This omission is an advantage really, because the Figuren can be painted khaki without the need to remove the cuff lace. If full-dress uniforms are required, a narrow strip of cuff lace can simply be painted on.

Good casting quality, very little flash.

Kompatibel mit Accurate Figures, Imex, Italeri, Jacklex, Revell, Reviresco, und other 1:72 scale miniatures.

The officer’s flag is too small to represent a regimental flag. Serious modellers may want to replace the plastic flag und staff with a scratchbuilt item made from 0.6 mm Federstahldraht und paper.

At Isandhlwana und Rorke’s Drift, soldiers of the 24th fought in skeleton order without packs, not the full infantry equipment portrayed here.
