Fodder, drinks and ball....

 In my latest posting I threw a ‘WANTED’ cry into the world. Here I repeat the exercise if for different matter. Diving into the subculture of plastic 54mm Northwest Frontier the Gunga Din movie was brought out into the sunlight once again. And several new desires sprouted from that. Gazing at contributions of Nick, I suddenly found him in one of his scenarios:

Wanted! GUNGA DIN the waterbearer, a ‘bhisti‘ but preferred to be named: bugler.

Produced by Conte, years ago, in their Northwest Frontier theme, metal (I presume).

Wanted! Screwgun carrying elephant with mahut 

Above elephant with watertank, or gatling is just as welcome.

Last question(s) for now; what figures you do fellows suggest for the Thugs AND for the native troops under command of the main characters in the gunga din movie (they are uniformly dressed in some sort of white loincloth and now and then wear the crossbelt and equipment, bare-chested).

MUSTERING: On the search for Airfix and Del Prado 1/32 Bengal Lancers

 For my further colonial adventures I want to raise a unit of Skinner’s Horse (Bengal Lancers).

I’ve tried several options in vain to obtain these. Now this search leads to this blog again, where I was lucky earlier on. 

Build, unbuild and (not too..) damaged ones are welcome. As are the parts from the sets. I hope to trade for mutual interesting items.

A first recruit arrived earlier this week.... thanks, N.
