Indian Mutiny - Punjab Irregular Force

Saw these Sikhs on Ebay and couldn't resist them.  I think they are circa 1980s and actually designed for the Boxer Rebellion.  When I saw them in the flesh I was a bit shocked by the size of their heads!  I think they look fine and make an ideal Punjabi Irregular Force.  I had some officers (mainly Wargames Foundry Franco-Prussian), a couple of old QT Miniatures ACW drummers and spare standard bearer knocking about.  I painted up the little drummer boys as Anglo-Indians.

In all there are four companies of 10 men, plus the eight figure for the command.  The flag is speculative, but probably close to the real thing.
