Belgian's Colonial Collection Thread Update 19/07
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:00:30 PM »
Decided to start a Darkest Africa miniature collection, so finally managed to paint the first few bits. So without further delay, I'm presenting a small camp with some Renedra tents and barrels and some home sculpted and casted crates. Although the collection will be mostly 'historical' I will be adding some dinosaurs and other pulpy additions.

Thanks!

@Smokeyrone, will be using a mixture of Dixon Miniatures, Warlord Games, Wargames Foundry, Northstar Miniatures and most likely many more other companies but first up will be some explorers and porters.

@Gringo, will be adding some Dahomey warriors when they're ready!

@marco55, have a Reaper giant ape, unpainted of course 😀

Good start. This is such a fun period with really excellent options and miniatures. It has even pulled me in from my obsession with the Back of Beyond and SE Island Asia. You are going to enjoy your adventures in Darkest Africa. Looking forward to more.

Belgian, looking good! Let's see some natives next...
I want to see how you will finish off the infantry bases.
