Here are the new Perry Plastic Zulus taking on some Perry miniatures 17th lancers. Lancers painted by Rafa Archdique !!
Got to agree these look mouth-wateringly good !!

Only ten days to go before their release. Buy 3 boxes and you get a free limited edition figure of Tshingwayo the Zulu commander who masterminded the Zulu victory at Isandlwana!!

Do we think the various colonial horse units are on the Perry’s agenda for the Zulu war?

empress miniatures do a very beautiful range of colonial horse   
GM (me) - you spot a 70 year old grey hair little old lady.. Clutching large leather bound book and a uzi.

“Tom”- “She has a Book!!!”

“Danny”- “I put a bust of M4 fire between her eyes” rolls…

Phil- “if he misses I put a shotgun slug in her face” 

That’s the Delta green baby"

Thanks DB, it’s very petty I know, but I really don’t like the Ebob horses

oooh very nice.
I was always tempted to get some warlord Zulu. glad I didn't now.
3 boxes of these and a box of British will make some nice big skirmish games.
If anything said in my posts offends you. Please report to your nearest safe space and snowflake councillor. Thank you.

You are not alone.
I have a fair few of the Empress Zulu War British figures by the excellent Mr Hicks. Love them.
The eBob horses, with their outsized chests, I don’t like I’m afraid  :(

Must admit - the Perry Zulu range is nice but I far prefer Empress- far more animation and far cleaner castings (I’m referring to the metals of course) but, as I’ve said many times before, it would be so boring if we were all the same!
Put your trust in God and keep your powder dry!

Have to say I quite like the E bob horses 🐴 they've lots of character and a joy to paint.? I do love the Empress Zulu War range it's only their Zulus that are poor. I spoke to Paul of Empress Miniatures at colours in September and he told me they are bringing out NNC in the spring. They also have plans to release more Zulus but I feel they may have missed the boat there as Perrys plastics are going to take some beating when released next week !!
