|Essex Rajput Knights|
|Indian Blades: Outpost and Museum miniatures|
The club-wielding half giants with bad hair are from Museum Miniatures. I like most of Museum's Indian figures, but these guys are just ugly. The sculpting is adequate with deepset features, but the single pose is pretty bad. They're taller than the Outpost figures, as well as some of the other Museum Indians.
|Museum Indian Light Horse general|
The Light Horse general is also from Museum Miniatures, and was a part of their Mountain Indian army pack. These light cavalry figures have only a single pose, and like all Museum cavalry I've seen, they're cast in a single piece. These aren't my favorite figures from the Indian line; I much prefer their bow and spear infantry.
The army pack didn't come with any way to distinguish the General stand, so I painted the horses white. I've started painting white horses by starting with grey and bringing the highlights up towards "almost white." It gives a bit of a greyish look, but I like it better than the results I get by washing a white horse.
To finish a second Hindu/Tamil Indian army, I now need to paint a bunch of bowmen, some elephants, and some cavalry. I should probably paint some more knights for the Rajput as well, eventually. I find that Indian infantry goes really quickly, so I've already prepared the bowmen for painting. I don't have any deadline or goals in mind for the Indians, so I'll just fit them in when I have time and motivation.
