Darkest Africa scenery is pretty done and the miniature painting is well underway:

Always good to see these guys. Some of my favourite figures ever, Copplestone's Ngoni. Nice one.

I'm hoping that at some point we'll see them get an outing on that table layout you showed us a little while back. That will be quite something.

I was torn between the Ngoni and the Zulus, so I just decided to collect both, it will make for some interesting tribal warfare games.

Now that I have several factions painted, this winter will see a DitDC campaign, I have an idea to link them with some Congo games.

That'd be cool. I find myself increasingly drawn to the idea of all-African battles, and leaving the Europeans out of it for a change.


I guess technically that wouldn't be Colonial Adventures, and I'd have to post about it on some other board. But that would be silly.  :)

The Ngoni military machine was based on the formation of national regiments comprising of different age-sets from the various clans. The age-set system with it's general division of cattle herders (pre-warrior age), warriors and senior men (post-warrior age) is a common feature of Bantu social organisations.

These prime fighters would often form up as part of the "chest" when the Ngoni adopted the "buffalo horns" attack formation and were expected to deliver the coup de grace to the enemy.

Africans could colonise other parts of Africa. It's a big place.

The Ngoni are a good example of a nation who actually did this very thing.

No buddy, it's either blue or white polstrene sheets, carved into shape and textured.
Title: Re: Raglan's African Adventure
Post by: Argonor on December 03, 2018, 01:51:34 PM
OK, thanks - the shapes reminded me of some rocks I've seen made by plucking chuncks of upholstery foam, then painted with some latex/paint mix (I think), that's why I asked.

Must have taken quite some skill with a knife to get those shapes!  :)

Post by: Lord Raglan on December 03, 2018, 06:03:57 PM
I have seen the type of foam rocks you refer to, however, you wouldn't be able to achieve such a high level of detail with that type of material.

All very nice but am I the only one finding the photos with the dark background a bit of a challenge for seeing the photos - except the Watuta with their white headdresses?  I think I understand the reasoning and perhaps better than the white backgrounds where some of the items washed out if not in the front of the focal plane (depth of field?).  Still, makes it harder for me to focus on that fine work.

I actually prefer a dark background to a lighter one. For starters, feeling rather counter-intuitive, it can be harder to get the lighting right the lighter the background I have found.

Looking - again - at your Force Publique figures and I realized there is a good option for those of us who prefer 15 mm figures: use Louisiana Tiger Zouaves mixed with Egyptian askari figures and get from a couple of manufacturers to add some variety and a credible unit can be assembled.  Unless someone makes these figures in 15 mm already but I don't know of any.

Lovely army, Lord Raglan.
I have always liked the Foundry Darkest Africa figures.
One of their best lines of figures.
Seeing your figures reminds me I have not had my "Africans" out in years.
Thanks for the photos.

Ngoni Chief Zwangendaba (reigned c. 1815Ė48), leads a raiding  party to Lake Tanganyika. After his death, the Ngoni state fragmented into several components, and the people continued their travels, occupying areas in Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia.
