My Zulus and Brits were painted by Mr Joe Barette. I have subsequently added many more Zulus based on the firm belief that you can never have enough Zulus!!
 
I had originally intended gaming the Colonial era in a much smaller scale using a DBA derivative from an old issue of Wargames Illustrated. But then Joe came along.......
 
The British Army comprises:
 
155 British Infantry
2 guns
12 gunners
1 gun limber
2 Quartermaster wagons
12 lancers + 12 dismountedt
8 mounted rifles
8 Frontier Light Horse + 8 dismounted
5 Natal Mtd Police + 5 dismounted
5 Natal Carbineers + 5 dismounted
4 Stanger Mtd Rifles + 4 dismounted
6 Dismounted Boers
6 Mounted Officers + 4 dismounted officers to match
5 Color Guard.. 2 color bearers 1 Queens + 1 Regimental + 3 buglers
15 dead guys 1 representative for each particular unit and 8 Brit regulars
14 Sikhali Horse + 14 dismounted Includes Durnford and William P. Vereker
55 Natal Native Contingent
 
Notes:
 
1. The 17th Lancers were converted from Esci Polish Lancers using British heads w/ pins and epoxy.
 
2. The FLH were a combination of Scots greys (most of the cav was converted from the esci set) and ACW confederates heads.
 
3. The two guns from the Royal Artillery with 12 gunners and a limber were mostly composed from the Airfix British Napoleonic set with an exchange of heads.  A few of the figures are Esci.
 
4. The 55 NNC figures are just Zulu's with red bands painted across their heads and they have a higher percentage of rifles.
