Back of Beyond Expedition 
I didn't get much done this evening as the kids had some friends over to play after school and everything got shifted two hours to the left, metaphorically speaking (if you know what I mean?). I painted the hair on half the figures using three stages of either Foundry African Flesh or Chestnut. The others will have black or grey hair in order to keep things as simple as possible.
I've reached another 'ho hum' point with this lot, as you can see from the photo, but I reckon a final push will finish off the last bits and tidy them up. I need to do a bit of fine-lining with a suitably brown / black wash in order to tidy up and define the edges. I also need to sharpen up the detailing, with particular reference to the buttons, buckles and cap badges. All pretty fiddly but it needs to be done.
