Steve Barber has just finished a new green of a Dutch soldier in early uniform as worn during the early part of The Aceh War., this is a commissioned range by another enthusiast of the esoteric......it is understood this is the first miniature and others are on the sculpting table

Will there be local warriors as well? Can't call them Indonesians but tribal and Warlord's troops?
Cheers,

There are two hearts beating in my breast when I see Steve Barber Minitures. The figure on on hand is nice, but these gigantic Hands are so terrible. Looks a little bit like he put his hand in a bee home and was sticked a million times and they grew. Or if Steve Barber took the Hands from his 40mm for the 28mm....

I am the one who commissioned these figures.There will be a couple of natives coming.I asked Steve about the size of the bayonet and he said it wasn't as big as it appears in the photos so it may be the same with the hands.Steve wants any and all imput from people with any knowledge about this conflict or anything on the figures themselves.I commissioned a couple of Dutch in the 1870's uniforms,a couple in the 1890's uniform and a couple of Acehese. I wanted to see if there's any interest in this conflict.That's all I can do right now as I'm not a rich man but hopefully others will want to get involved.

Interesting to see a colonial force beyond the typical British and French.

That's what I'm aiming for even though I like the French and British too. :D I'd like to see some Portuguese too. :D

Yes I see and they seem to be very popular.That's why I thought that this may be the right time for my proposed range.Then again maybe it's the worst timing as most people will not have the funds to do both. :'( :D
