Zulus (HaT)

"The sentries report Zulus to the south west. ...eight of them".
Well, There´s only the 8 poses in the set as seen here 
Not historically accurate..but then again they are meant to come from a Jungle type area in Khandibar and aren´t really Zulu´s at all  and I liked the idea of a B/W colour scheme on the shields. Zebra skins...with wide stripes..that´s it!!..widestriped Jungle Zebras. Common in Khandibar.
Part of a swop with Peter from Peter´s cave Blog..............he´s been lazy and not yet painted his part of the swop :-D

  1. I´d say the shields are Okapi hide. Very popular in Khandibar in the 19th century. That´s why the beasts became nearly extinct (Prof Dr Mallebrootje African Shield Coverings And Other Oddities Of Ye Darke Continent).

    They look great, as usual!

    1. LoL..I like it..:-D Was that in the original or the abridged addition? My copy reckons that the Okapi had stripes 3.7mm´s smaller (the white ones) than those on the shields I´ve painted.
      Cheers
