'The officers on foot could represent any personalites or regiments as officers generally wore whatever clothing they wished.
After I primed these 'Front Rank' minis in black enamel to give a good flat opaque undercoat, I wanted to start on the faces first as these give character to the miniatures almost immediately.
After undercoating the flesh areas with matt white enamel, flesh was mixed from red + yellow + white and painted thinly over the undercoated areas, then a wash of burnt sienna oil paint was applied giving the faces a somewhat suntanned effect.
The mdf base is from http://www.warbases.co.uk the grass is from 'War Painter' available from most wargames online stores and ebay. The small bush I made myself.
