I have just finished basing my latest painted figures from Leroy Simpson. They are the superbly designed Bashi Bazouk cavalry from Perry Miniatures. I have had Leroy paint this unit in order to support my Egyptian infantry in the hunting down of the Mahdi...... whether they will stand up to the first charge I am unsure but they make a nice little addition and colour to the game. Leroy has painted these guys beautifully and in order to replicate the Bashi-buzuq horse on plate 7 (page 18) of 'Go Strong into the Desert'. This is also the first time I think I have ever seen the figures painted by anyone before so please enjoy Leroy's work.
