the figures aren't that bad, just the heads are a bit too small I think. Some nice poses too for the FPW.
I especially like your reds on the baggy pants:) You could try though to shade the white with something else than black. What works for me is painting the parts that should be white in a shade of off-white, ivory or something like that. then highlight with normal white, and shade a bit with some (light) grey

Cheers,

Christiaan

Thanks, Christiaan. Good idea with the white. I will try that way next time.

Excellent painting! I think you've done the face very north-africain looking!

Hi Kaktus,
Very good looking zouaves!
I like the red colour in particular.
What number did you use for the red?
Are these figures also suitable for the ACW?

@Christiaan: I think that also has to do with the abnormal wide pants, they tend to let dimensions go bananas :-)

I like the bright paintingstyle of them, they have a lot of character.

Cheers,
Ruben
