LAF: Colonial Painting Expedition [1]

Hey All,

I thought I'd join in with the Lead Adventure Forum's 'Colonial Painting Expedition'.

Simple concept - paint up and post a photograph of any solo colonial figure.

Anyway, I entered this guy;

Perry Miniatures Zouave.

Inspired by the Painting Expedition I thrashed out a few more generic Central Asian types this week;

During my last 'episode' of colonial wargaming I painted up a small force of 1870s Russians, with the intention to expand the collection so that I could put on games based around the Russian colonial expansion into central Asia, and 'what if' scenarios based around The Great Game in India. The 'Arab' contingent of this project never got started, but now their time has come....
