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.......

55 Natal Native Contingent
The 17th Lancers were converted from Esci Polish
Lancers using British heads w/ pins and epoxy.
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.
