Just famished these BEFORE the weekend. I have a planned post for Sunday. It does not involve Sudanese colonial troops.
Firstly 6 more infantry this time loading. Hold your horses I will do a group shot when the last figure is painted.. Still another batch to do. Again these are 28mm Foundry and while they are all in similar poses there is sufficient variation. Some have their right hand on the gun others in the ammunition pouch and again some have different tassel position on their hats.
Painted for Matt and will represent Sudanese troops of the colonial period.
And finally 2 musicians. 1 with a drum and one with a cornet. I did find out that the Sudanese regiments used a variety of colours on their drums. Red being the most common and then red and green, then yellow, then white and red and then white and then Blue! But as I wanted a different colour and not red I chose the blue. I nearly went yellow but as yellow is hard to paint I was happy with the blue.
Again I could have a choice of silver brass or painted drum rims. I settled on silver. Brass just looked wrong and painted very wrong!
At the end of the day it is for a game so if I am wrong let us be honest no one has died, so it is not a big deal.
I have 4 more to paint and I anticipate them being finished early next week.
So Until Sunday take care have fun and if possible enjoy yourself.
