The latest effort is another Newline Black Powder regiment for the Anglo-Egyptian forces.
These are from packs SUD01 British Command and SUD05 British Foot Advancing, bases need a bit of filing but no biggy.
Based on the colour plate on page 72 - 2n Battalion Princess Victoria's Regiment (The Royal Irish Fusiliers) from the book 'Go Strong into the Desert' by Lt. Col. Mike Snook, a Perry Miniatures publication.
However the unit has in fact come out almost exactly like plate 2. of the English Khaki units in the Perry Miniatures Guide. Such is life.
I changed the technique for painting the helmets this time, from the drybrushing used for the NSW Regiment. I detailed the portions of the lemon-squeezer with a much cleaner effect.
These Newline figures really do have a huge amount of character when painted up. Great figures once again and really nice to work with.
I feel the need for some artillery or another highland regiment next.
