1st Battalion 42nd Regiment (Royal Highlanders - the Black Watch)
Some artist show them wearing sennet hats but as the Perry figures have caps I will stick with these.
Wearing the grey uniforms specially devised for the campaign and their normal kilts. It is very difficult to get an idea of what shade of grey was used. I have seen it depicted as everything from a light blue-grey to quite a dark almost slate grey. I am going for a light battleship grey.
3rd Battalion 60th Regiment (King's Royal Rifle Corps)
Wearing the grey uniform with their normal black leather accoutrements and buttons. These should be the quickest figures to paint anyway!
They had arrived from India so wore the India service khaki uniforms.

I'm about a hundred pages in and have just read his tremendous account of second el Teb. This easily provides enough information to put together a wargames refight and as the battle involved quite small but diverse forces on the British side (Highlanders, Riflemen, Marines, Naval Brigade, Hussars, Khaki clad infantry etc.) I think I'll make it the model for my first British force. What I'll need to do next is get some sort on breakdown of troops involved and then try to convert them to wargames sized units. Then I'll try to work out the uniforms involved.
