Finished the third ZANLA pack from Under Fire; just tweeked a couple of them, one lengthened his shirt & another changed his shirt into a camo smock and added a couple of ammo pouches, for no reason other than it made them look more like the reference pictures:

After chopping the heads off some RLI minis for another project, I got hold of some suitable replacements and converted the bits to represent a couple of late war RhSAS.





Based on this picture, taken during Mapai raid '79.

I would like to see more Bush and Border Wars stuff from Under Fire Miniatures.

Ask and ye shall receive. Next commission to go in with Tony will have more ZANLA & RAR. Elsewhere I believe I've committed to doing K & G-Car modification kits !!

Too kind, just don't look too close!

I love this topic(and my interests normally stop at 1939), your work is brilliant and highly detailed.

Your painting is remarkable sir - the level of natural looking detail you have achieved in 20mm is truly realistic a real tribute to the Rhodesian conflict.

Thanks guys, I can only praise the models. The level of detail makes you feel like you're painting something bigger, just need a smaller brush & less paint!
I did have a go at doing a stick of troopies in 1/35 scale a few years ago. Couldn't find the right webbing and the rifles are a bit small, but was a good test for trying the camo:

Outstanding work. What models did you use as a basis?

The 1/35 scale blokes were based on the Dragon 'Nam series' US Navy Seals II # 3316.
