Bokharan Infantry in a variety of dress styles. Six each of the three infantry figures in the center; one drummer and one leader (right).
I've named these "Bokharans" but they could stand for the ordinary soldiers of any of the Central Asian khanates or even Kashgar or Chinese Turkestan. They were inspired by Ian Heath's Foundry book Armies of the 19th Century: Central Asia and the Himalayan Kingdoms, especially by Figs 5- 12.
In order to help you field a large force to oppose the Russians, they've been packaged in a Unit Special Pack.
While there was no prescribed uniforms, the coats tended to be red or scarlet, the trousers either yellow chambars of the type that inspired Russian dress in Central Asia, or decorated cotton or silk pants in a variety of colors. The sheepskin hats would be white, gray or black.
NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed) and without the bases shown.
