Egyptian Infantry - Sudan 1882-85

I have been a little slack lately in regards to painting, however I did manage to paint up another two companies of Egyptian Infantry for my Sudan collection. The figures are a mix of old Glory and Perry Miniatures command which I picked up the very generous Scott Robertson just the other week. These two companies now complete the Egyptian battalion.

Hello Darrell,

Sure no worries on the flesh tones: the first layer is Citadel Dark Flesh and the final coat is from the Foundry painting system called Expert Flesh Shade 127A. Hope it goes Ok.

All the best

Vinnie

Hey mate they look great, much better than the other 2 companies I painted (I hate doing white uniforms). See you Saturday in Brisbane. Cheers Scott

Hello Scott,

Yes well I have had a little practice with the Spanish. They did paint up well though and I would not have had the opportunity if you had not offered the figures to me...thanks old mate
