    Hi All,
    This is set one consisting of five 54mm Zulu warriors. There will be a total of 5 sets, 25 Zulu's in total. The sets have been made to attack the Rorke's Drift diorama, but could be used in other vignettes or diorama's.

    This set of 5 is £75 (£15 per figure) and they will only be sold in sets, not individually.
    cheers

    I've got the book 'Zulu' by Ian Knight, along with the Osprey books, it gives a real insight to their army. Defeating them was no easy feat.

    You're right, Richie. I shouldn't have mounted the Rorke's Drift defenders set under a glass dome. The Zulus look terrific. Good job!

    Have you read The Washing of the Spears by Donald R. Morris? Some say it's the definitive book on the Anglo Zulu War. Worth a look if you haven't.

    Hi Nap,
    Thank you mate, well I can't find time to paint, just finding enough time to get these moving along.
    cheers

    Hi Anthony,
    It certainly wasn't and cost the British Goverment over £5.4 million pounds to do it and countless lives. If the Zulu's had not been so regimented and fought more of a guerila war using their knowledge of the land it might have been a totally different war.
    cheers

    Hi Rick,
    Thank you, I need to make a big push to get the others finished and in moulds. I have never read the washing of spears. Although ground breaking and inspirational in it's day, there are now better update versions with a lot of the errors rectified and new insights as more evidendence and first hand accounts have come to light. Usuthu!
    cheers
