Above is a pic of Lt. Colonel James Galbraith, Regimental Colour in hand, alongside Bobbie the regimental dog and some of the other "Last Eleven" survivors of the 66th (Berkshire) Regiment, making their last stand in one of the walled gardens just South of Khig village, a few miles West of the Afghan town of Maiwand.
ABOUT THE MALALAI FIGURE
I called up Foundry and spoke to the legendary BERNARD, who indeed lived up to his legend and helped me out enormously. Without making a big deal about it, he shipped me the specific figure I so desperately needed. All's well that end's well, so THANK YOU, BERNARD!!!
Here's a link to the Foundry page with her on display:

I hope to soon post some pics of the conversion process, turning her into a 19th Century Afghan folk-heroine...
