Today I am intending to place up on the blog images of a nice colonial Italian army that Leroy Simpson has been painting up for John. The figures are Bicorne Miniatures extensive range of colonial figures. Many of the figures have some great character, however can be hit and miss on detail and are not quite the painters dream. But from the images on this post you can see Leroy has painted the figures up beautifully and they do make for a nice unit once all are based and lead by an inspiring Italian officer.
Leroy has painted four Italian Askari units for John's army all of which had their first battle against the Dervish hoards only a couple of days ago and helped claim victory for the Italian Commander...good work boys.
