Yep 28mm Crimea war. I know a little about the Crimean war but really not much so tis I think may be a steep learning curve. Very steep indeed!
These are 28mm FOUNDRY figures depicting Lord Raglan and his staff. As mentioned I do not really know this period so if I make any mistakes please forgive me. To me they were a nice bunch of 28mm figures. Luckily Matt did provide me with a pic to copy which I then did. Certain things were changed of course, like the base and the colour of the horses but overall I followed the picture fairly accurately.
I did look at certain paintings to get the uniform colours and did notice that some of the plumes on the hats were black. As the pic Matt gave me had white plumes though I went for white as I figured maybe they were either different regiments or even different ranks and that Matts pic was the correct one. I still have no clue so if you know better kindly let me know. I hasten to add I am not looking doe masses of information, just trying to get it right for next time.
The last (small) pics are the same pics but from different angles so you might get a better idea on the figures.
Finally this is not a period I am really into and while I have enjoyed painting them for a change I imagine I will very quickly become tired of it. They are not as bad as Napoleonic's and for that I am grateful, but still not my absolute favourite period to paint
Needless to say click the pics if you want to see them bigger.
Until next time allow me to dasy dream about more 20th century things.
All the best Clint
