Purchased two sets of these beautifully sculpted Empresses Miniatures Anglo Zulu War limber teams. This one is depicted pulling a 7pdr RML field gun. A pleasure to paint and well worth the wait for its long awaited release.

These are delightful.

There is still a quite active discussion amongst Zulu war enthusiasts as to the fate of the limbers/carriages at Isandlwana, probably due to the very graphic nature of their demise and the accounts relating the desperate struggle in the press.
By most accounts, a full carriage, with the remains of men and horses, having fought to escape the field, was suspended over a deep ravine, witnessed months later by Archibald Forbes I believe and there is, in 'Zulu rising'' something said on this.
The heart skips a beat thinking of these terrifying last moments.

I am very happy that Empress have put the effort into producing these and happier still to see you bringing them to fruition.

Thanks for sharing your work here, it is a source of inspiration.



Cheers

Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.
