Hinterland African Troops

Hinterland calls these "Askaris" but a number of the details suggest French "Tirailleurs Sénégalais" so that is how I painted them. Although that have exposed breasts, the femininity of the figures is subdued. I did a bit of research (Googled African hair styles) and found the red hues of the women's hair. In the Hinterland universe, women command women and a European Navy officer "gone native", commands this unit of colonial regulars and irregulars.
