Really nice work. This is the third thread of yours I have looked at tonight.One question I have,how do you do it ? o_o.How do you do so much.It's not like you paint a few figures and that's it as you create whole worlds.My hat's off to you.

I don't make any of the terrain, this is out sourced to friends such as David Marshal and Tony Bragg.

As for the miniatures, much of this stuff is batch painted, boring as hell but it does allow you to get stuff on the table quickly

Some great stuff on this thread. I have a soft spot for Ngoni  I'm in the middle of painting my own army of them at the moment.

Belgium's Force Publique Command Group



Under Leopold II the Force Publique was described as an "exceptionally brutal army". One major purpose of the Force was to enforce the rubber quotas and other forms of forced labour.

I don't have these anymore but here are some I had done once.I also have these nice figures from the Crisis 2019 show in Belgium representing Lt.Lippens and Sgt.DeBruyne who was killed by Sefu in 1892.A very nice person sent them to me.
