Queen's Own Corps of Guides, Punjab Frontier Force: Cavalry

For the Mounted troops of the Queen's Guides, I used Perry Sudan Campaign figures, substituting swords for lances for the troopers. The Guides officer's silk pugree is more elaborate than most Imperial officers.

  1. Excellent job there!

    Do the Perry figures come with swords as well as lances, or do you have to get your own?

  2. The Perrys only come with very nice bamboo lances. For the the Guides I used RSM 95 swords purchased from Dayton Painting Consortium. They are listed under their 25mm Accessories
