Incidentally, a look at the Iron Duke website's 'products' section reveals that once the cavalry are done and released 93rd Highlanders are next :

Perhaps the native looking officer is meant to be none other than the famous Sir Harry Paget Flashman VC, KCB, KCIE, who it must be remembered, received both a Knighthood and a Victoria Cross fro his service in the Mutiny.

He's based on Dighton Probyn, as the Iron Duke blurb on the previous page says. But Studio Miniatures do a Flashman in mufti in their 1st Afghan War range :

Sure to be popular but I would have preferred to see some native irregulars/matchlock men released first and some European civilians ,evading capture or defending Cawnpore etc.Dont get me wrong,I'll buy the 93rd in a heartbeat but the others would appear before these on my wish list  Smiley

Yep,that's some release schedule  Cheesy
Lots of goodies to look forward too  Smiley
(If my earlier post seemed churlish I apologise ,I know the 93rd are the poster boys of this campaign but they appear in the  later in the battles, I thought Iron Duke was concentrating on the early conflict initially,before moving on,therefore the 93rd are appearing "out of sequence" so to speak  Smiley)

Well , we all have our favourites? But the good thing is that - unlike with many other manufacturers- that in a few years time we WILL have everything we want. need.
Me, I would like some regular sepoys  in coatee and trousers to portray the loyal Indian regulars who after the initial mutiny still outnumbered any European force by at least 2:1. But I'm sure they will eventually become available and with this release my next year of painting is fully booked Laugh

They are available already, Willie. Packs IMREB6 and IMREB7 offer figures in coatees with either trousers or dhoti, while IMREB18 has them in shakos and trousers :





Romark : native matchlock men are in the pipeline since Mike previewed a couple of dollies on the Iron Duke FB page a while ago. Dunno why they do not appear on the list above : perhaps Mike Snook is saving them for a 2018 release.



I'm not complaining about the 93rd appearing out of sequence though : I'd even welcome figures in dress tunics for HM 53rd right after them.

Hi Arthur,

yes I know some of them are suitable for regular 'Loyal' sepoys but only a handful. I doubt that loyal sepoys would be allowed to wear a tulwar? Perhaps my too vivid imagination but I suppose loyal BNI would wear regulation coatees and probably trousers, probably dhotis, but not cummerbunds, tulwars or skull caps? Just to keep them distinguishable from the mutineers?
But that Gwalior pack offers another 4 possibilities since they are in standard dress aside from the shako. I replaced the shakos with standard covered caps and put the shakos on the amputees. Since I will be using the Gwalior Contingent as mutineers it doesn't matter if they are somewhat 'out of uniform' and their NCO is wearing a dhoti anyway.

It's hard to tell from the Iron Duke photo but do the shako sepoys have percussion pouches on their belts,I haven't bought a pack yet,waiting for shako command first(seems not on the list though)  Smiley

Yes, they have pouches on their waist-belts but only two are showing because of their pose. Obscured by the muskets.
