Belgian Askaris with Fezzes
I'm juggling quite a few projects right now. In addition to casting all those new 40mm miniatures and painting 1:72 ACW guys, I'm also throwing together a GASLIGHT force for the odd pick-up game of Victorian Science Fiction. Since I've spent a bit of money the last few months on my hobbies, I thought I would just use what I've got for GASLIGHT.
Thankfully I was really into VSF back a few years ago, during which time I picked up a bunch of Wargames Foundry figures on clearance at a RC plane/model train store that had decided at one point to foolishly dabble in historicals. For the better part of a decade the blisters languished unpainted in bins. Now, however, they have a new lease on life as part of my "don't spend a lot of money on this project" project.
These guys will form part of a single askari unit, along with probably two regular soldiers and a handful of characters.
