Colonial Watery Capers

Latest off the workbench for my Colonial project is this steam launch which I have slightly modified from a kit by Sarissa.
I'm calling her "Sandpiper"  (some readers may get the significance of the name!). I might replace the forward mast with a gun of some sort...



In the background, the 18th century Prussian infantry regiment (IR5 - Alt Braunschweig), newly arrived from Dave Jarvis, awaits basing...

Very nice. Will it be sent with Wolesley to the Sudan?

Figures look great, even better when based.

The boat is fabulous, would good with a gun and a few sand bags, look forward to seeing more.

Great figures and model, Phil. I had wondered how the Sarissa kits would come together & paint up...it looks great. What paints do you use on the mdf kits? Cheers, Rohan.

Thanks for all the comments. Appreciated.
Rohan - I just used the Games Workshop acrylics, and some foundry acrylics. Seemed to go on OK.
