AIP British Naval Brigade in the Sudan



I recently bought a couple boxes of Armies In Plastic ("AIP") Royal Navy Brigade that fought in the Sudan in the eastern Suakin theater of the war. The picture at the top of this page shows the ten figures plus an officer that I painted.

Each box consists of 16 figures which translates to eight poses with two of each pose. Aside from two "silly poses", the figures are nicely posed and detailed. "Silly poses" are those useless figures that are the bane of every box of plastic figures; you know, guys using their rifle for a club, laying prone or charging (when every other pose in the box is either firing or defending).


The quality of the figures varied in my box. It seemed that each pose had one figure that was well-cast with sharp details, but then the second of the same pose was missing some of the detail such as belting and straps. This is the first time that I have had some miscasts in all of the boxes of AIP figures that I have purchased for this Sudan Project


Silly poses times two- the two figures on the left.



Nice officer figure. I plan on having one command my artillery brigade and the other will command the infantry sailors

    1. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

    1. Thank you Stuart. I went back and forth over whether to paint them in the traditional blue uniform or to go with the white summer uniform. I even saw one contemporary picture of the sailors with blue trousers and white top!

  3. Great looking paint job. I am working on Beja over the next couple of weeks. What color/brand are you using for their skin? Also for Egyptians (mine are a bit pale)?
