Just finished to 95% (once again, I still need to put it the eyes) but well pleased with the colour scheme of this Skorosian company of the XXth "Dauntless" Legion, miniatures by RAFM.
The original GDW text called for russet as their distinctive colour - I went a trifle redder than russet and gave them a white base uniform. Rather Roman, innit?
Seen below parading near the Grand Canal of Skorosia (or else larking about the front garden). The shield-gunners are still massed with the rest of the shooters, as the Kaiser's advisers have yet to retrain this legion for the Sturmtaktik.
These are part of my Fadathi War Soldier's Companion campaign project, which is still slowly building.

Some new miniatures, for my In Her Majesty's Name game:
|Brigade River Pirates, with RAFM Colonial Martians flanking|
Rough Sailors from Brigade Games Victoriana line - these will provide my nefarious company some pistol-fodder.
These are well sculpted, with good animation and proportions, and fit in well with older 28mm miniatures, as shown in the photo.
|B'Hoys Metro Police, with RAFM Colonial Martians flanking|
Mid 16th-century Police from The Virtual Armchair General B'Hoys line - will represent the rank and file of La Sûreté.
These are fairly well sculpted, with good animation and moderate proportions: the greatcoat seems to throw the miniatures dimensions off slightly. These also fit in well with older 28mm miniatures, as shown in the photo.
Overall, I rate the miniature thusly:
Brigade River Pirates
Overall: 5 out of 5
B'Hoys Metroplotan Police
Overall: 4 out of 5
