Author Topic: Me, myself and I in the Dark Continent - new update after 5 years...  (Read 39403 times)

Hello everyone,

as this is my first post ever in this forum I just like to introduce myself very quick. My name is Dr. Moebius (or Alex in the real world, or Alexander as my mum is calling me).

In times when everyone around me (my mates) seems to paint Vikings, Normans, Irish etc. and playing SAGA Ive got a Darkest Africa backflash for myself.

A few month ago I got the Death in the Dark Continent rules in my hands and decided to give it a go. Here is what I managed to paint so far. My Force Publique is now nearly complete ( I will do some more baggage and wound markers in the future). I have plans (and miniatures obviously) for a lot of factions I like to paint in the next years. My rough plan is to do the Congo Arabs/Manyema next and then followed by an Azande force.

Hopefully you will enjoy the pics - and let me say that I have done the pics with a mobile phone because I do not have a proper camera (and Im a bad photographer as well).

Cheers
Dr. Moebius

Three stands of Ruga which I will use as Swahili or Arabised Manyema followers for my Arabs:

Alex,
Very nice paint jobs.  I particularly like the striped fabrics (and so many  :o :o) and the cow hide!

Top job indeed. I also like the three figure stands, which are a welcome change of pace from singly based miniatures and work as mini-dioramas.

Very nice, thanks for posting!
