A forum to discuss HaT products, ETS, uniformology, modeling, painting, and other essentials associated with HaT products.
I'm assuming guns & gunners from the HaT set 8210 Colonial Artillery are good for the British in the Mahdist Revolt?
The Perry Sudan uniform guide gives the gunners very light grey uniforms with white webbing. Is this OK too?
Sounds correct, Strelets Turkish artillery is pretty good for Egyptian Artillery for the period, both guns and troops, and four of the five poses in the redbox Turkish sailors artillery would work with either of the above guns as Mahdist artillery
I saw your Egyptian artillery conversion, Alan.
Waterloo1815 heads? Nice work & I might make a few of these, too.
I apologize. We seem to have had a miscommunication. I was referring to Alan's conversion of the Redbox Turkish sailors to Mahdist artillery.
If someone has a photo of Alan's conversion, I would appreciate their either posting it or posting a link to it.
Again, I apologize to Paint Dog for the miscommunication.
No, my fault, Pat. Poor reading comprehension skills....
Pat, I have yet to convert the redbox figs, they are the closest to Madist gun crews yet, although not perfect, in the absence of better, they will have to do. The gun crews were often pressed men , ie captured Egyptian gunners who either wore plain white cloth or less common their old uniforms, adding chains may be beyond my conversion skills though
Thanks for the input. I had hoped that you had made the conversion so that you could provide guidance. It looks like a hard one to make. You are right about perfection. It can be very rare. Sometimes we have to compromise with our little men. Again, thanks.
Donald, yes, an easy head swap.
