Being on long service leave is great for my hobby. It has been the first time, for a long time, that I have been able to sit down and do some solid painting. So my latest edition to the my Zulu War collection is a unit of Zulu riflemen and a couple of command stands. The figures are again all from the plastic Warlord Games range, with the marksmen from the unmarried box and the command from both sets. I still have another eight riflemen to complete and the army will be ready for another crack at the British.
The Warlord plastics are starting to grow on me as my collection is mostly metal but these guys are great. Plenty of different poses to make and they are a real joy to paint.
The command I inherited painted from a friend, however the painting was very poor, so I have had to re-spray and re-paint and am now very happy with the end product.
