I really enjoyed making these even though I should by right be a major shareholder in Greenstuff. There are plenty of references and information on the web and it seems possible to paint the figures in as many colours as you wish from off-white for the poorer infantry to bright silks for the commanders. I obtained a book on Mughal paintings and used this as a guide when painting the flag, but to be honest most of the way I finished these came out of my head rather trusted source. I'm currently making civilian figures to act as Rebels for the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685, but hope to return to these soon, I fancy the idea of some figures to represent Mysore regulars and rocketmen (sit down Elton) and elephants are hanging around in the shadows...........
The Jacobites are the relatively new figures from Replicants, the loading Highlander being a conversion. More sometime soon, bye for now.
