Well - here we are...after approximately waiting 25 years for them...the lovely chaps at HäT posted me two sample Sprues of their Zulu British Infantry Command, Box #8299 and Zulu Wars: British Infantry, Box #8237.
And what fine and spended fellows they are too...
The first thing you notice when looking closely at the figures is not only the excellent animation and poise of the figures but practically NO FLASH!
The only little (icky) bit of plastic I had to remove was on the underside of the base so that they would glue to their bases...
The infantry come with no less than 4 individual advancing figures...and thats not including the chap in civies...
The other item of fabulous insight on behalf of HäT is the additional arms and the inclution of a standard too...and these fit so perfectly they put shame to 54mm figures...oh what fun we are all in-for on this!
So let the music begin...and let the images speak for themselves...I won't appologise either for the amount of images...as there are hundreds of possible variations...
And now to some with paint on :o)
My thanks to Alan, Nick, Mr Mannix & Lou for their excellent (and speedy) brush strokes...
Back to work (you've done your bit Hooky)
