Back to Colonials
With only 4 elements of hoplites to finish the Zulus have come back onto the painting board. There are a lot of them to do...........and they are so boring! I wonder why I stopped before. Oh Well!
Not content with that much self-flagellation I purchased 2 new boxes at the Halifax shop:
HaT 8299 - Zulu War command - horrible red coloured plastic, have to be very careful when cutting figures off the sprue as it's not clear what is wanted and what's not.
Strelets M051 - Highlanders 1898-1902 - a really tough sprue to carve your way through, figures seem a bit squashed or crouched. Not certain how many Scots regiments fought in kilts at this time, nor the conflicts of such a short time-period. Needs some research methinks!
