More 28mm Sudan
There are 2 officers, 2 musicians and 2 flag bearers each with a different flag. The flags were bought in and are paper. I made the mistake when attaching these of not making them flow the same direction. By the time I realised the glue hard dried and it was too late to change it. You can all imagine me kicking myself!
The chip on the second flag bearers base is repaired now. So do not fret about him. They are all based on 2mm MDF round Bases and then filler is applied to get rid of the "step of the metal figure base. It takes a little longer but it really is worth doing as it gives a much more professional result.
The other 18 figures are all marching. At first look they are all the same, But a closer look reveals several differences in the figures. Simple things like a moustache or clean shaven or the tassel on the fez (You may if you wish call it a tarbush), but I will use the word Fez just because Dr WHO says that Fes's are cool, and that's good enough for me.
Thanks for looking today. And with luck I will post again soon. I am currently painting for eBay sales so it may be a mixed bag for the next week or so. But it is just as likely that I will give up and carry on with my own things but I am hoping to get a little money together for the local show in a couple of weeks.
Take care of yourself Clint
