I know, I know… I said I was going to work on an entire unit…. But I got started on them and got wondering HOW white I should paint some of the white bits of their uniform…?

These two Zulus are from The Foundry.
Honestly, I’m kind of torn… I like both of them for various reasons… (or perhapsI should say I don’t mind either…?) Anyone out there with strong feelings one way or the other…?
This fellow is from Reaper Miniatures and is for my friend Mikey K’s D&D game. He’s sent me a few others that I’ll be painting up over the next week or so…
I went and saw The King’s Speech the other night. I thought it was really quite well done. Of course it’s got me all fired up about the idea of doing some more “Very British Civil War”-gaming… Of course then I get an email that Maelstrom Games is having an anniversary sale and they just happen to have the VBCW books… at 15% off (with the voucher code: MAELSTROM-10 until Feb 28/11)… free shipping worldwide… ugh... I very nearly bought them… but then didn’t – I’ve spent nearly my entire years toy budget in the first six weeks of this year and might need those remaining nickels for… I don’t know… some Indian troops…? Maybe some mounted South African volunteers for the Zulu War…?
Did I mention it’s my birthday this weekend…?
Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:
More Zulus… and more of Mikey K’s fantasy figures…
