Perry Miniatures – Sudanese

img_6362-jpg-2

Over the last couple of years, I have been working in Papua New Guinea (PNG) for four weeks at a time and never really had much time for myself, however this trip I decided to bring over some figures and paints with me and scheduled 20 to 30mins a night for painting. After three weeks I managed to complete 24 x Perry Miniatures Sudanese for my Sudan collection. To be honest, they were a repaint of an old commission I had painted for myself but I was not happy with how they were painted, thus they already had a good base coat. I basically repainted the flesh, uniform and rifle….only have to add them to a base now, which will be a job for me on my I return home next week. After basing these lads plus the rest of the Egyptian lads will be involved with some intense battles with the Mahdi. So until then please enjoy.

  1. Thanks Roger,

    In regards to these lads I had to repaint an older figure, which I did not like the paint job on, thus they were already under coated. However as a rule when painting white I know use Iraqi Sand and then for each layer or highlight I add a little more white. In the end at least for the Egyptians of this period it allows for a nice off/dirty white colour.

    Hope that helps

  2. Looking good! The Perrys for this period are just an absolute joy, IMHO. I'll try your Iraqi Sand idea when I get around to mine, your white uniforms look perfect. 🙂

  3. Thanks Alte for the comments. I agree, I have eight units of Egyptians and auxiliaries for the Egyptian Army for this period so that they can be a stand alone force.

    Regards
