What a lovely project. Great colour, basing and thought behind it. Well done.

I have been slowly working through some specific elements representing units that fought in the 1st Boer War or Transvaal War of 1880 - 1881. These will be used alongside some of my Zulu War British elements such as some of the Infantry, KDG and 60th Rifles elements already in my collection.

The Naval Brigade - Even though I have a several elements of the Naval Brigade already, sailors are sometimes pictured wearing pith helmets. The artillery element represents a model of the Fisher launching tube Mark 2 adapted for land use.


Army Service Corps - The core of the mounted squadron was formed from the King's Dragoon Guards, however the squadron was joined by volunteers from the 58th and 3/60th Regiments as well as the Army Service Corps. this element represents the Army Service Corps volunteers.


Finally, an addition to my Tarzan HotT army: 4 Horde - Wildebeest. These critters started out as 10mm bison from Irregular miniatures. They're not perfect, but I am reasonably happy with them and they serve the purpose.


Thanks for looking.

Good to see this is still moving in the right direction. Love the rocket launcher.

Barry,

Did you ever pick up some Cape Buffalo?  If not, we can work something out.  I have more than I plan to use for my herd which I plan to limit to 96 (or 32 bases) - plus some dead ones.  If interested, please PM me.

Thanks! I have been busy with mammoths and cavemen of late, but I have enjoyed my return to my colonial projects.

Not yet. A couple of sets has been on my 'to buy' list along with a set of the Kelly Gang miniatures. I will send you a PM. Thanks.
