603 - Desert Rats Sikh Reinforcements

I was tempted to pun more with that title, but suffice it to say, I've painted up a few more toys for my Sikhs:

  • A Vickers MMG and three crew,
  • A second officer model (white, this time) as my artillery forward observer,
  • His signaller, who will act as my artillery forward observer when it's just a one-man team,
  • A platoon 2" mortar team.
Avoid enlarging this - it probably won't bear close scrutiny!
This all means that all of my original desert army toys are now painted up, but I do still have the camel-mounted officer and runner which Mattenbury very kindly donated to the war effort...

Anyone would think I had a game planned against the Deutsch Afrika Korps this week...!

- Drax.
