British in Zululand, NWF, South Africa, Sudan & Newline announcement

Hello all

Just thought I'd keep the interest boiling with the imminent arrival (hopefully in a few months and b4 the snow falls) of the new Zulu War/colonial figures from HaT and now also Newline in May; more on those lads later...

Here are a few images from my collection to assist in some uniform planning...


Keeping the interest going for the 17th too

Newline have also (thanks to Steve the wargamer) announced the launch of some new figures to their 20mm colonial range too...

Looks like HaT could learn from Newline...get your products out to the market first...once I have spent my few £/$/€ I can't go back and spend them again...first in the market is first with the profits...

Anyway, I've also added a few more links to the right...showing some of great painting and conversions around.

Back to the grind!

  2. Thanks Duncan, The Zulu war are my next project. The images will be a great start to my painting.

  4. Duncan, thank you for sharing this nice plates with us! And maybe I buy some of those new figures to. They look promesing!


  5. I would love to know the source of all those plates, did you make them yourself?
