Apart from the larger units, the Gary Chalk scenarios require a number of characters as well. Although I am proceeding well on the Naval Brigade I have to go to Turkey this week so won't get them finished until (hopefully) this weekend. They are nearly done but the collars of the sailors require, in total, 90 very fine white lines and this is taking almost as long as the rest of the painting!
I think I might give him a wife, as there is a perfect Foundry figure in one of my boxes. He is a non-combatant so it doesn't matter, from a scenario point of view, if there are two figures rather than one.
The next figures I have based and undercoated are the Sikhs. You only need six but I got eight in my Foundry pack so will paint them all anyway.
I have also started work on the British standard bearer and I found an extra unpainted British askari who will be the leader of the unit of 14 local levy askaris.
