Yet more troops of 24th Colonial Regiment

This time all in French solar helmet, a mix of the new Early War Miniatures figures plus the remained for the Elhiem Senegalese I had left with EWM heads.

Madagascar next?
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Great work Richard.
Love the command group with officer with map and semaphore 'flag' signaller.
Many lovely figures and your head swops are seamless.
I paticularly like the two pistol carrying officers, one in kepi reminds me of Airfix (for some unknown reason) and other in solar helmet is great crouching / advncing figure who looks like he has taken a slug but is keeping going for "honeur" of his Regiment.
Well done.

Actually I mixed up the figures during the photo-set, the NCO with kepi is in the wrong group, the crouching guy is the LMG No2 :)
