Just for the record I have about 200 more still to paint! So you will be seeing these again! Well different ones, but the same sculpts and again painted by me. Before anyone gets carried away the unit on the left has been on the AHPC before and is just to show the HORDE as it is today. I do of course refer you to Here and Here which only show the Guys on the FAR left. (Brown and white shields).
The White shields will be unmarried and un-blooded and there are Currently 66 of those. I need ! more base of 6 to complete the unit!
The Married (White headdress) with Black and white shields Number 72. And Are a complete unit! (Yippee!)
So the running total is (feel free to count them in the pictures). 223 Zulus painted since the start of the challenge.
The miniatures are mostly Newline Design and a sprinkling of Pendraken Miniatures. Both makes are 10mm tall (1/200th scale). I find the Pendraken to be better (and more expensive) and with a winder range of poses. If I was doing this project again I would stick to Pendraken.
- Black shield and Headdress= 63
- Solid Brown shields with rifles = 22
- Black and White shields and Headdress =72
- White shields Unmarried/un-blooded = 66
For a total of 223 Zulus painted and based and ready for war. (Gaming). If my Minion wants to check my Maths (that would be advised)make it either more or less that is OK with me I am just glad to be half way there for a planned game. Like I SAID DO NOT count the guys with white and Brown shields they are seen 2 years ago in the challenge! They are only shown because I know at least 1 Blogger who like to see the horde as complete as it is at any one moment in time! I will be starting the next part of the horde in a day or two!
So as I look at this I am now OVER half way (for now) So just because I can. The final Battle from the Film. Still a great film and thank goodness Hollywood have not tried to re make it!
MilesR: 223 Zulus!!!! That's more than they had in the film as extras. Lets see 223 10mm infantry figures will net you a tidy 223 points (at one point per figure)
