DA093 - Solid Chaps to a Man

£12.00

Mainwaring, Lugard, Standish, Sanders, Monteith, Cholmondely-Warner, "Nipper" Atkins. Supplied unpainted.

These chaps are typical of the officers who, in the 1890's, were seconded from their regiments to command small askari units somewhere in Africa - sometimes they were just using their leave to do something constructive, like claiming Uganda for the Queen.  When not wearing their tropical uniforms they adopted a casual style complete with rolled up shirtsleeves to give mosquitos a sporting chance. Actually, all of our colonial europeans will serve perfectly well as european or american adventurers, adventuresses and officers boldly going forth in anywhere hot in the world!
