Bushveldt Carbineers?

Having pondered the new entries in Heroes, Villains and Fiends, I have been contemplating for some time putting together a Bushveldt Carbineers company, based on the irregular mounted contingent in the Boer War, formed to combat the Booer Commandos and which included many colonials including famous Aussie Harry "the Breaker" Morant.  (No idea what I'm talking about? Have a look here).  Anyway, I hadn't found the right figures that I was after so hadn't progressed it much.

So I was delighted recently to see a teaser at the In Her Majesy's Name blog of "Brumby's Marauders", an upgunned VSF version who seem to enjoy tearing around Asia and the Orient as mercenaries.  What a brilliant idea!  Cant wait to read the full entry for this new company in the upcoming second supplement, Sleeping Dragon, Rising Sun.

Read the teaser here:
