Off topic units - Sepoys

Not strictly relevant to this site, squeezing in though through their officers, these are privately commissioned sepoy figures - two battalions of Bengal infantry, one of Madras, and one of Bombay Grenadiers. For their European officers I have used spare Hinton Hunt Royal Marines and a Portuguese officer.

Which is the Portugese officer??

Is he an HH Portugese officer or a portugese officer in an Indian regiment??

Hi Roy, second picture down, HH Portuguese officer charging painted as a Brituish HEIC officer.Johnn Cunningham now has the various head swap figures for these sepoys coming through - previously there were only Madras Indian officers, now there are Bengal and Bombay Grenadiers too, I shall be adding some of these to these units.

Ahhhhhh We see the Potugese now. He must be hoping those sepoys at his back are aiming straight!
