From LeeH - 24th Foot in Skirmish Order (48 Points)

As promised (foolishly) a few weeks ago I have been painting the same six companies of Infantry in march order, line and now in skirmish order. This should give the British player a lot of flexibility with his troops and also means I can scale games down to quite small, single company actions if a scenario demanded it.

Each company consisted of 16 figures which I have now split into four bases of four infantry. These can be placed touching each other to form a skirmish line which has double the frontage of a formed company or with a gap between each base to represent an extended line.

I have now painted pretty much all my British figures so I think, for now, that's the last of my Anglo Zulu War project for this challenge. 

Infantry company in four formations: Marching, Formed Line,
Skirmish, Extended Order

Its not my last entry though... I have a few 'special' entries for my parting shot and the field is wide open with regards to scale and theme, so watch this space...

What's this? Two posts in 1 day Mr Hadley???
Excellent brushwork you mad man you!!!! I still can't believe, you've painted the same unit all those time!! But they do look pretty cool!
96 figures x .5 = 48 points!!


  1. Great work Lee! I look forward to it every week!

  2. What an amazing project - these are going to look brilliant en masse!

  3. Nice work Lee! :)

    End of the project? Have you really done all of the Zulus?

  4. You sure are going all the way with these Lee, it is truly inspiring!

  5. Very well done Lee! I‘d love to see a shot of everything you painted for this project already.

    1. I will be doing a final shot before the end, so keep your eyes peeled!

  6. The detail you get on these is quite impressive.

  7. More great looking figures for your zulu war force, they look great!
    Best Iain

  8. Wonderful stuff as always Lee. I want to see AAR shots on these on table.

  9. Ooh, lovely! I don’t think they will survive against the horns of the buffalo, though...
