1st Battalion, Royal Tabnerian Rifles (part 2)
My minifig army. Defending freedom the Victorian way, with a stiff upper lip.
About this creation


This is my minifig army.

It is an infantry unit, stationed in the Middle East, protecting the trade routes The do this through extended patrolling and garisonning strategic locations; fortified barracks in towns, and forts in the remote areas.

The Royal Tabnerian Rifles was initially raised as a single battalion in the UK and then deployed overseas. While in India a second battalion was raised of local Sikhs, renowned as soldiers for their courage and aggressiveness; a small detachment has been deployed a part of the 1st battalion in their current posting.

The 1st Battalion is commanded by a Lieutenant Colonel and there are 35 other officers. There are 25 ordinary platoons of infantry, 4 platoons of mounted infantry, a headquartes section, a supply section and an attached artillery troop with four guns. They are formed into five ordinary, one mounted and one headquarters companies.

Included in the strength is a detachment of Sikh troops from the 2nd (Sikh) Battalion.







































The army was on display in full strength at the AFOL Lego Display at the Merrist Wood Summer Show on the 20th of May 2007, where these images were taken.









Although a strong detachment manned Fort Abu Klea at the Brickish Legoland Windsor display in May 2008, the Regiment was not at strength again until the Great Western Lego Show in October 2008; where this pic was taken.

Additionally it is quite conclusive proof that no mirrors or digital trickery have been used.

You provide us with a textbook example of deliberate and strategic force development. A force 6 years in the making. You now command a force with the numbers, quality of men, and fine equipment needed to dominate the battle field, and all but ensure victory. I see why you were forced to construct a larger fort. The old Forts Mk4 and Mk5 now seem like mere outposts. Brave Rifles!

Have a trawl through sites like Bricklink and it's not uncommon to find vendors with 100s of some types of brick for pennies each... minifig tools, weapons and accessories are pretty easy to get hold of as most of the dealers looking for "rare" minifigs worth 10s of dollars can often end up with large amounts of what they think of as junk, that they're happy to offload cheaply.
