Whenever I paint a new period or a new type of figure (in this case both!), I usually paint a test figure to work out the colors and how I want the unit to look. Since I was working on a Sikh cavalry unit for The Men Who Would be Kings, I thought to myself, while I document the colors in my handy dandy notebook, why not use the camera on your phone to capture the steps of how you painted the figure?

I don't know what the back of a turban looks like either, but I did learn that the Illustrated London News is a great source for things like this. Unfortunately, its illustrations are b & w line drawings, so you won't find out this regiment had a mauve top to their turban. You will find out if they had some sort of design or lace on top (some kepis do, I found).
I'm starting to think I should do a better job of keeping records of how I paint my figures.
