Indian porters, stretcher bearers and more infantry

During the Battle of Keren typically a third of the infantry were used as porters supplying those in the front line. I've converted a few of the Perry Miniatures Desert Rats to be carrying crates of rations and ammo, these will also be supplemented by the the pack mules I did at the back end of last year.

I also added a couple more stretcher teams

I also added another ten infantry, you'll note that some are on 25mm bases, this to help me distinguish the 'Big Men' from the other troops,

Apologies for the poor lighting in the photographs, hopefully we will get some better weather soon.


  1. Bloody hell Scivs, just how prolific are you?

    Great stuff- they will be a credit any North African 'desert' landscape.


  2. Nice additions, Paul. "Big Men" - now that's TFL/Sharp Practice sounding. Best, Dean

  3. Cheers chaps.

    Dean, indeed the Big Men are for I Ain't Been Shot Mum and Chain of Command.

  4. Great painting as usual - particually like the porters.

  5. More terrific Indian infantry. Great job and the photography is excellent!

  6. Really nice conversions! One of the benefits of plastic.

  7. Thanks chaps, so many Indians done that I feel that I am almost ready for Salute now.
