Boer War 1898-1902

Posted by despertaferro on 28 Jan 2020, 14:15

Hi...

Boer's war British Artillery and Infantry

The artillerymen and guns goes straight from the Strelets box, so not much to say about.

For the infantry bases, I did mixed figures from the Strelets British infantry for the period and some figures from the WW1's Australian Camel Cops set. I know they are not perfectly accurate but I wanted to represent how the British soldier did look late in the war: slouch-hats, bandoliers and khaki trousers. In fact, they were not much different from their Boer enemies.

My earlier postings about the subject can't be seen now, so I'll try to post them here the soonest I can.

Many thanks for your time and I hope you like them.

Regards

Joan

Amazing, as always. Can't wait to see your Boers so they will have an opponent!

You really are the master at mixing figures from different makers so we hardly notice the difference! Next time I expect to see some 28mm and 1/32, but not sure we can spot the difference even then! And, as Aaron, I long for some boers!

Fantastic firing lines. Pretty Cool for that hot climate too.
These could be used against Johnny Turks too, in the Great War. BB

As with all your other works, excellent stuff again! I have a box of the Strelets infantry and seeing your efforts makes me want to paint mine (although I'm sure I'll still not get round to it...)! Looking forward to seeing the Boers.

Very good work! It is interesting in Europe that the book of the writer Louis Boussenard, Captain Sasset -Cov, was also popular as in Russia?
