Anglo-Zulu War 1879

Hi there...

As a side effect of this coronavirus crisis, had all my jobs on hold until new order.
But I think I'm going to catch up my paintings...

These are British Mounted Infantry, made by Hat. Some figures from Natal Native Mounted and Frontier Cavalry sets used as a scouts on the command base.
Not the best figures ever made, I must say...

Hope you all are well

Warm regards!

Joan

Maybe not the best figures but you still have done an amazing job. I love the subtlety of your toning!

Frontier Light Horse

Hi...

Long-time not posting anything here. Too much work lately.

Not much time for painting and not only my outcome as dropped; rushed painting is not the best for quality, so I feel a bit ashamed to post this here but is everything I got so far.

I have a little bit of free time now so maybe I can catch up my rhythm a bit…

I hope you are all doing well…!

Joan

The day you are too ashamed to post, Joan, is the day we can all put away our brushes in shame. Beautiful work as always, and glad you decided to share!

Love the brown tone of the figures, makes them look weathered and part of the landscape.

Hi…

Some reinforcements for my Anglo Zulu war, British side.

Quite heterogenic stuff this time… A couple of Gatling guns, one manned by artillerymen and the other by sailors. A Naval Brigade base of infantry (I am planning to make some more Naval Brigade bases; I like very much how these sailors come out…) plus a Scouts base. I like the heliograph figure very much and I was not sure about how to make the best use of it. The other option was to include it in a Commander base.

Figures mostly Hat with a couple of old Esci. Not my favourite brand (Hat…) but they released quite a few sets covering the period, so I am going to make use of all of them.

All the best!

Joan

I'm really amazed by your skills : getting this beautifull result with those (really) bad moulded figs is art !

Great looking units Joan! Nice mix of figures BTW! :thumbup:

It has been 8 years ago I've painted those marines with the gardner gun (BLOG) ;-)
