|The British Infantry all painted|
Following on from my last post on this subject I am delighted to report that 106 British Soldiers can join the painted ranks of my Anglo Zulu War project.
part 2 can be found here
As mentioned before there are a combination of Warlord Games plastics and Blacktree design.
|Warlord to front - slightly shorter and smoother pith helmet design|
Painting these was both fun and painful. The volume of white webbing had me cursing on more than one occasion.
|All ranked up with two mounted officers|
Each unit has either been based on an eight or a six tray. Hopefully this will give me the degree of flexibility that the various rulesets are calling for.
|The obserrvant amongst you will notice no red stripes on the trousers...just could not get it right !)|
These all fit into two of the plastic A4 folders. If you recall there were seven ttays of Zulus.
|A4 Folders - circa £2.50 each off ebay|
Up next on the painting table will be the British Artillery (Cannons, Gatling Guns and Rocket Troops) followed swiftly by a dozen mounted Boers and 30 foot. All procured from Blacktree in one of their great sales.
I was hoping to attend Colours this weekend to purchase the final components of this project but a damaged foot prevents me from doing so. I'll just have to go online.
PS if you interested in this period and want to see who produces figures for this period I have put together a list of suppliers
