I had this chap from Artizan Design knocking around in the cupboard and as I don't need another LMG gunner for my regular army squads I thought I would do something a bit different. I have a bit of an obsession with the whole Zulu war period, hence I thought what if the British army hadn't changed their uniforms for something more tactically sound like say...Green.
I am really very pleased with how this model turned out to the point that I think I might have to order a squad or two of British infantry from Artizan and paint them up in the same way as the private army of some mad royalist or disposed Baron!
I love it there and I know what you mean about a love affair with the Zulu War period. You could easily have a VBCW unit dressed like that. Someone who father, grandfather fought and maybe died there.ReplyDelete
