inGobamakhosi Regiment

 Back on the old Zulus again! These Perry figures are addictive to make and a real joy to paint.

Basing them on strips of cereal packets makes it really easy to paint these guys on mass. The thin card can be bent very easily so you can get the paint in around the figure. When finished they will be moved to 25mm single and 40mm bases ( two to a base to help with movement).

A good tip with these plastic figures is to drill a hole in the shield with a pin drill to add a some Victorian drama.
Also on these dark shields, run a light hide brown colour along the edge of the shield, it really sets the shield off and looks great.

Lovely job. I'm using your skin recipe on my orcs.

Excellent historical painting as usual - I had some Baker Company Zulus (4 packs) but never got around to finishing the lot sad to say
