Matabele Project finished and washing of the spears
« on: April 04, 2018, 10:21:38 AM »
I picked up an army deal from Nick at Northstar as had been hankering after them for a long time. As other lads had lured me into DITDC rules it was an easy temptation. So to get them on the table (one lad did brits which are low model count, whilst another has the whole foundry range already painted and a third is the fasted painter on earth) I decided to speed paint them, so chocolate brown paint in hand went at it with a fervour. 10 weeks later the army was ready to wash it`s spears which it didn`t quite do last night falling to the guns of a British colonial force. The rules are nice and simple and have me hankering after another army :D

And their first fateful defeat on the table...usually the end game with all newly painted armies, and the norm for my gaming prowess ;D

That's an impressive number of figures to paint in a short period of time. :)

They're not having much luck at the minute. They failed to qualify for the Cricket World Cup, too. The Afghans pipped them to it.


Oh well. They look an impressive sight, anyway. Nice one.

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

Wow! Zillions of them!
Mighty as they seem, I think their next battle will be victorious!
