    Got in a bit more progress today...
    Haversack, canteen strap, all the bloody whites :blackeye:. Really coming down to the short strokes... Boots, cartridge pouch, bayonet scabbard, pewter buttons, backpack and rifle. Once it's all together, there is (and will be more) some touch-ups where I coloured outside the lines :sorry:.

    That leaves me the base. Another hunk of red oak, stained black cherry and clear coated. I see a rough stake-lined entrenchment section... maybe at a corner, with a couple of Hessian bags stacked about and some tools... like that there.

    Thoughts?

    I did some backchecking in the pamphlet that came with this guy... His uniform and gear are that of a new arrival at "Calamity Bay", the launch point for the Allied invasion of the Crimean peninsula. Once he left Calamity, a Brit would have tramped through Alma, Balaclava, Inkerman and the siege of Sevestapol (if he survived) and would have looked a might different than this grenadier.
    I've been working on the base tonight and it will have this fella on the road leaving Calamity Bay, 1854, and looking to the bloody Crimean Campaign ahead of him.

    The putty's still setting, should have this done by Sunday night... Cheers

    Very well done Colin....if you are putting a label on him, the bay is "Calamita."

    Cheers

    "Calamity" was the British nickname for the port (you know this) and I like the sound of it as it describes the rest of the campaign, which was one calamity after another. I was going for the sad comic irony :rolleyes:
    Thanx for the support guys, should be done tonight.

    Thanx Fab... I feel like I've finally found a decent red mix

    Colin, I must say I'm shocked, I usually defer to your historical knowledge. Calamita Bay was the push-off point for the allies (mostly British and French) into the Pennisula. With the constant in and out of men, horses and equipment the port was generally one hot mess... hence the nickname, "Calamity Bay".
    I really dig the sound of that... It says it all.

    Kinglake and Nolan didn't use the term...hence my defence.
