    I’ve finally completed painting my first couple of units of infantry from Perry Miniatures’ conjectural British Intervention Force range.

    My British infantry, however, are anything but conjectural, as I’ve painted them to represent the soldiers who fought in the colonial New Zealand Wars during the 1860s/70s. In this theatre, instead of the tradition red coat, the British soldier wore a blue ‘smock’ or ‘jumper’, which was a loose-fitting jacket with a single breast pocket.
