King’s African Rifles Askaris

As promised some KAR Askaris to oppose The Germans

The Askaris are some more of my own figures, the British sergeants are from Battle Honors.

I have another 30 primed and ready to paint to finish off another two units (well… 28 primed and ready, actually, the officers are already done). Hopefully I’ll have them done for next’s week 7th Annual Wargaming Birthday Bash.

I do also have a couple units of British regulars – so there’s no real rush on the askaris… What I DO need is some Indian troops… (Did I mention I have a birthday coming up…?)

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

More KAR Askaris and sundry Africans and other Colonial/Great War soldiers….
