Zulu War

The artillery are great, very smart and efficient looking. And the Native Horse are really cool, very good job breathing some life into that mass of khaki.

Having been very busy with work and also being lucky enough to have had a long holiday in the US recently there has not been much painting over the past couple months. However, I have finally finished my British command figures. These are mainly from the Hat set (which is excellent, my favourite of all their sets) and a couple of figures from the timeless Esci set. Not all poses/combinations have been painted from the Hat set as I have specifically chosen these figures for a very small diorama I'm hoping to get around to at some point, involving queuing for ammunition at the wagons at Isandlwana (as depicted in the film Zulu Dawn).

As always, I welcome feedback and any critique I will try and learn from. Thanks for looking!

When you paint like this you are relieved of painting the whole box! They look great!

I've just finished my British infantry firing line with some added casualties. Figures are from Hat, Esci and A Call To Arms and all are nice sets. Thanks for looking and your continued support and encouragement!

No wonder they are casualties!!! With a HUGE toothpick in the chest/back!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: Looks great! Thought ACallToArms would look too small compared with the others, but they look nice together all of them!

Thanks for your kind words. Susofrick, the Call To Arms British merge quite well with the other sets, but their Zulu's do look a little small when compared to the others.

Next up...Mounted British Infantry by Hat. This is another nice set by Hat. I think they've done a good job with the whole Zulu War range.

I am usually not really a fan of HäT figures, and this set maybe even less than most.

You have done a nice job with them, though.

Love the battle of the bottle tops, an event never hardly mentioned in annals of figure painting.
The painted figures look kinda cool in spite of being in ZULU LAND. A good topic . BB
