Zulus (Again) ClintB (82 points)

Yes I know more Zulus. This time no not hundreds, only 82. This is I hope enough to play the game I have planned (along with the ones painted previously in the challenge AND the ones done BEFORE the challenge even started.

Anyway they are a mix of New Line Designs and Pendraken miniatures, but mostly New Line Designs. They are all 10mm or 1/200th scale and should bring the force up to critical mass sufficient to play a game or two. Well that is the plan.

I have kept with my convention of mostly brown and white shields as they did make up the bulk of the tribe that did attack Rorkes Drift Station. But there are 5 small stands with all brown shields to represent the rifle armed Zulus,  1 stand (6 figures of white shield Zulus to finish of the unit shown earlier in the challenge and one small stand of Black shield and headdress Zulus to finish of that unit as well.

Yes Before anyone asks I do have more to paint, but I think not for a while as other projects are getting neglected. So my remaining Zulus will be left for now and I will get on with some more interesting projects. I am not saying I will not come back to these but rather that for now I have finished.

82 in all. at 10mm should be an additional 82 points. Nothing fancy just nearly 3 packs of Zulus finished based and ready to be put away.

MilesR: One of 2 posts from Clint today - another giant passel of Zulu's - really nicely done

    1. Thank you Dave. I will do a group shot on my blog and then take a list of exactly how many more I need. But I think I am close to having sufficient to play a small game.

    1. Thanks Christopher. What I need to really do now is 1) play a game, and 2) work out just how many more I need.

  6. Great looking Zulu's your stamina on this project has been outstanding. I do think you should just plough on and ignore other cough 6mm projects ;-)

    1. Thanks Ian. I know I need a break from these and am planning a break as well. As I type this I am in a 15mm WW2 mood, bet that mood changes very quickly!

  7. Wonderful work mate... Now I just need to resist the temptation of Zulu's in 6mm!

    1. Thank you Lee. Postie already has Zulus in 6mm I am told. SO resist like mad. If I knew what I know now I would not have even started. While there is little wrong with them they are boring to paint.

  12. between Zulus and Madhists, there are a lot of threatening mobs with pointy stabby things running around here. These are lovely, I am in awe of your productivity.

    1. Thank you David I will do a group shot on my blog either Sunday or Friday. I hope there are enough to look spectacular. More importantly it will give me a clear idea of which units really need a few more. and It is better to know before I use them all up (I still have some left to paint).
