I've had Empress's Zulu character pack in the cupboard for a while now, but have never gotten round to painting the figures up. As I don't really feel like painting the thin red line at the moment I thought the model of Stanley Baker as Lieutenant John Chard would, with the right paint job fit right into the Wittering Defence Force.
I couldn't resist painting the trousers blue with a nice regimental red stripe but the rest of the uniform is painted to match my WW1 and WW2 uniforms. I decided to paint the shoulder braid gold, because well why not. All in all a great model and I like the result. There may even be room for James Booth as Henry Hook in the force, if I can come up with the right sort of paint job!
