T E Lawrence.

After many months of searching, a good friend managed, by power and influence, to obtain THREE T E Lawrence figures sculpted by Michael Perry as one of the special edition miniatures produced for Hamburger Tactica 2018. The deal is I paint them up... one for me, one for the good friend and one for Mr Perry. Here is the first. I am very pleased to have been able to get this out of my system as I think this is a fantastic figure. I like the fact that Lawrence is wearing his army uniform with sandals and Arab headgear. This is clearly early on in his on in his involvement with the Arab Revolt. I shall have to get hold of some Arab irregulars now....

Perry Miniatures Sudan Naval Brigade Gatling Gun and crew

More fun in the Sudan.  This dark blue paint doesn't take the varnish well at all... still shiny in places.  Time to get rid, I think.

Perry Miniatures Sudan Naval Brigade

It is rather agreeable to be able to return to the Sudan after such a long absence. A couple of other units will be completed in the fullness of time. Mostly wearing kilts!
