Painted 100+ Belgian WW1 troops for a customer, part of the very large project. Great Wargames Foundry figures, probably sculpted by Mark Copplestone. Those are early Askari, in 1914 blue uniform. Some had red fez, some straw hat over the fez. I liked how some figures had the top of the straw hat missing and fez visible. Some figures have native clothing instead of pants or pants but no shirt.
White officers commanded askaris. Belgian officers had blue, white or combination of blue/white uniforms. I painted blue uniforms a bit more deep than askari because of the better quality and care for the officers. I used color combinations for more variety
Figures were cast very well with some flash here and there, easy to clean. Some mould lines here and there, nothing that file or paint brush couldn't fix. Sculpting was very painter friendly with well raised details. I only had problems with painting eyes. Eye sockets were very deeply set with very large bulging pupils. That made very hard for me to paint whites of the eyes and I gave up after few tries. I painted most of the eyes with just a black dot for African troops and brown dots for white officers.
