Amir Khan and Son, Pashtun Princes

Taking a trip further north and east from the Arabian Peninsula! These two are characters from Artizan's Second Afghan War line. 

The Amir here, in the blue tunic and sheepskin coat, is a leader of men and is dressed accordingly. Look at that old pirate! He remembers many a hard-fought skirmish with the British Raj, many a treasure seized, and many a retreat to the impassable mountains of his tribe. Here he is trying to teach some of his life lessons to his Oxford-bound wastrel of a son, who cares for nothing but fine clothes and lavish parties.

His son, meanwhile, is arguing that he *needs* his allowance of walking-around diamonds; if there is a splendid horse or a boat he wants, or an aeroplane or a motor-car and he cannot buy it, what then? What will his friends in the European capitals think? How shameful that would be, a disgrace to their international prestige!

Parents never understand these things! 
But it is a changing, rapidly industrializing world, old Khan will find; and his son will learn the value of physical bravery and diplomatic negotiations soon enough.

I agree!

Vibrant colours!

 

Looks great!

 

***But Father! How can I show up with a mere Rolls Royce and fifty servants?***

 

*** They will all arrive by helicopter! And not rented ones I tell you!***

 

*** You will take the Rolls and love it! What was good enough for me, will be good enough for you!***

 

***I will look like a mere peasant! You don't understand!***

 

*** If you keep this up I will not even let you take the Rolls! There is a nice Bently in your Sister's collection!***

 

*** What?!?!? Ohh alright!! I will take the Rolls, but at least let me take hundred servants to make up for it a  little!***
