As there were no bandsman figures does that mean you built up the wings on his jacket with some kind of putty? Or is it just done with a paint-job? Hard to tell, as either way it looks good.

Putty Dylan. Thank you for the kind words.
Best wishes,
Helen

Here are some of my navy elements and Peter Callan's brushwork on my Natal native Contingents.

There's artistic licence on the Heliograph set. I wanted to show different headdress.







Natal Native Contingent. The first battalion as shown with blue blanket rolls has had some head swaps which I did before being painted by Peter.




Thanks for looking.

Not sure if it was what Helen used (though it seems likely, as she seems to be going for an all-Perry project), but the Perry plastic British Infantry (Zulu War) set comes with two heliogrpahs. That must mean I have six of the things, as I bought the 3-box deal to get the bonus figure. One day some of it may get painted.  :)

Coming along nicely there, Helen.

Thank you. Heliograph from the Perry plastic British Zulu set. If you just purchase the command frame separately you will receive this Heliograph.

Thanks Mike1879. Peter has assisted in this project which really helps when you are a slow painter.
