Ka pai!  Well done!

I really like the decorative work on the Maoris' clothing.

Many thanks all, As said really enjoyed painting these figures. I have given up on the Moko tattoos as just dont look right no matter what (linked more to my poor brushwork and the pens being harder to use than a brush)

I have enjoyed Arteis painting the designs though can be a challenge. Must say your blog and Bjeorns have kept my interest and inspired me no end :D

Being a megalomaniac when I start project (not always finish them mind you) my plans include;

50 British regulars from the 58th
20 British regulars (using Ist Corp here for a little variety from 99th)
2 10 man units of milita (sappers and those in slouch hats on order)
2 rocket tubes one Empress and the other from Perry range to be Royal Marine team
Royal Navy detachment (havent ordered the cannon as yet)
12 settler volunteers, mix of empress and Perry civilians plus the ladies fromm Empress

Maori I have 80+ maori on the lead pile to be broken down into 8 Hapu plus leaders and the cannon.

I am planning on building a Pa for the Brits to assault

I particularly like the Maoris. Sounds like there is a lot more to come, which is great news.
