1st Unit of regular Askaris
I have now finished the first two British units for what I am now calling my Zambezi Campaign. These are the two units of 8 Regular Askaris. I have given each one a Sikh NCO.
2nd unit of askaris
I actually painted 26 askaris so have twelve in reserve if I ever decide to increase the forces. To start with, though, I am going to stick to Gary Chalk's initial forces.
The complete batch
To complete the British expeditionary force I need a unit of irregular askaris, a standard bearer and the officer (actually, I am going to use two officers).
Next up and ready for undercoating, is the Naval Brigade. I hope to get going on them this weekend.
