Afghan Highland Guard - Wargames Foundry


My second post for tonight is another unit of Leroy Simpson's Afghan Regulars from the 2nd Afghan War. The figures are again Wargames Foundry from their great North West Frontier collection and the figures pictured are the Afghan Highland Guard. There is no real evidence that they actually fought in this attire, however they do look good on the table. Plus they give a little colour to the Afghan Army.



Leroy has painted the figures straight from the Osprey Men at Arms Victoria's Enemies - India (No.3)


The range however only comes with three different figure poses, an officer (above), one advancing and one match attack pose.

They look great. I'd never heard of that unit; very "Carry On"!

Absolutely terrific - stepping right out of the pages of history, and that wonderful Osprey volume!

Great looking unit - nice kilts and the officer's braiding look particularly stunning. Best, Dean
