The Perry Sudan range comes in very handy for minor conversion work. Here we have the test piece of a Sowar of the 7th Hariana Lancers. Ten of these are set to ride out in Mesopotamia against the Ottoman Turks. There is a little greenstuff on the chest of this Sudan 1880s Bengal Lancer to give the suggestion of the 1903 Bandolier. The paint scheme is a generic Indian khaki but the pagri is painted up as the full dress example, just to give a khaki subject a little colour. Purists may moan, but I don't, nor does the chap who asked me to paint them! The horses for these ten lancers will be painted elsewhere.
