Rifle Brigade Sudan 1898

On an impulse, I purchased off Ebay a 54mm figure of a Rifle Brigade sergeant in the Sudan, 1898. I am assuming the leather equipment was black as in other periods, but before I start painting could this be confirmed. I am also assuming that the jacket and trousers were khaki.

Here is one from N&AI.... 1898. Interesting articles about "the Army in Egypt/Sudan" from that time frame.

Rob thanks for the image.

After my original post and Frogsmile's reply I thought to consult Michael Barthorp's book British Infantry Uniforms since 1660 and it's now clear where he obtained the inspiration for his illustration.
