Thanks Svennn. The Russkis are all from Foundry's Crimean War range. The Afghans are from various Foundry ranges.

I think all the figures are Perry sculpts, except the one on the left who is a Zanzibari sculpted by Mark Copplestone.

Captain, another great entry!
Any hint what colours you've chosen for the skin?

Thanks chaps  ;)

Err... Hard to say on the skin tones, since I tend to mix and make it up as I go along! But for the Afghans, I used a blend of Vallejo flat earth (a warm dark brown) and light khaki, then mixed in a bit of Vallejo flat flesh for the highlights, then added a dash of white to the mix for the final highlights.

Interestingly, I was out in India on business for the whole of last week, and I was peering at the complexions of the people I met! In Delhi, they tend to be quite pale, and I think this is even more pronounced in Afghanistan. When I got down to Bangalore, the people were a real mix - some very dark: almost negro 'black' - and some quite 'yellow' with a distinct oriental appearance...

The only tip I'd offer when painting non-caucasian skin tones, is don't think of it as brown,  black or yellow - always try to mix a bit of flesh tone in there as well, because almost all humans actually have a pinkish tinge that shows through. Maybe something to do with all having red blood, whatever our outer colour...  :)
