Sudan. 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers Command figures.

The group of three are Perry 19th Hussar figures creatively repurposed with a suitable colour scheme. The single officer comes from the Perry AZW Lancer command set, painted up as the Major commanding the two squadrons of the 5th Lancers at Suakin.

Sudan. 5th (Royal Irish) Lancers.

Inspired by the interesting uniform depicted in the Caton Woodville illustration of the Royal Irish Lancers, here are the first three of a squadron of twelve. These are Perry AZW Lancers with some uniform detail removed with a sharp blade and a little greenstuff added to form the paggri on the helmet. Painted up in a plain blue frock, Bedford Cord  riding breeches and a paggri in the regimental facing colour.

Sudan Mounted Lt. Colonels.

Three Perry Miniatures mounted officers to lead 2 Bn. Royal Irish Fusiliers (Indian Khaki Service Dress), 1 Bn. Black Watch (red hackle on the Foreign Service helmet) and 1 Bn. Berkshire Regiment. More Sudan is already on the painting table. A clue as to what will be found in the final image.
