From MartinC - I'll Raise You Another Impi (120 Points)


Work's party yesterday so a little peaky today. Now off work for 2 weeks, so I get to do some painting - which is nice.

Finished another Impi today. These 24 Zulus are the umKhuse regiment in their Sunday go to meeting clothes. These were a pain as 12 figures don't fit on a single 80x60mm base so I had to cut off a lot of their hands before attaching the shields to make them fit.







Great work Martin! I know you had to do a bit of fiddling about to fit them all on the base, but they do look fabulous ranked-up in a tight mob. Again the grass is a great touch and I like the red shields on these fellows. 
This impi will give you 120 points to add to your tally. I have a strange feeling we'll be seeing more of these fierce chaps coming over the horizon...

    1. Ta, they are a little boring to paint though. I need some better castings to paint. Luckily Christmas soon

  7. Yep one of the most boring wargames armies to paint I think. But you have done them very well and when they are all done you will get some great games I am sure.

    The only thing to top the impis will be if you can do a Fort Bromhead! And if possible when you complete the lot can we have a group photo?

    I checked the lank on Zulu shields it is a newer version of my information. So we are both singing from the same hymn book!

  8. Still reeling from the first post you go and hit me with another splendid Impi! I was hoping the office party might have slowed you down!

  12. Another great entry. Clever basing for super looking units and individual figures still available for skirmish games.
