African Musketmen
« on: December 11, 2016, 03:36:41 PM »
Well we all like painting the nice shiny Guard types but we all know you also need a lot of dross in your armies. Colonial armies being no exception here are 40 figures that would probably be classed at the lower morale levels whatever rules you are using.
There are 16 generic Musketmen, 16 Zulu Musketmen and 8 Musketmen in partial European clothing.
They are probably not going to win any games on their own, but as someone once said "Quantity has a quality all of its own"  :)

I think these are rather good.  Quantity and Quality.   :)

Agreed :)

I find these types of figures to be pretty useful.

Very nice, the last set are particularly characterful even though they are rank and file. ;D

Nicely done! I have a few of those figures amongst my own collection.  :)
