VBCW Red Militia [1]

I tackled the Red Militia this evening, once the kids were in bed, with a three stage Foundry Rawhide approach and managed to get them off to a good start. I'm going to use a limited range of shades over the next week to keep things simple and to retain a common look for the unit as a whole.

Not a lot of progress but I'm moving in the right direction. The next stage will be to have a crack at the boiler suits that seem to be the latest fashion amongst at least two thirds of the proletariat, so the Foundry Sky Blue will get wheeled out tomorrow, as it's one of my favourite shades and will do the job nicely.

I still have to come up with a unit identity for these chaps. The obvious would be to make them quarrymen from Portland or perhaps railway gangers and platelayers from Eastleigh, either of which would fit in well,
