Review ArtSoldiers Zululand

    Hi All,
    I received these 3 figures last week from Xaby and I thought I would open them up as they are right up my street. The figures are a new set of releases in 54mm from ArtSoldiers and if your quick there is also a very nice discount on them in their black Friday sale.

    ASM54001 British Officer, Zululand 1879
    ASM54003 Carabinero of Natal 1879

    ASM54004 Border Cavalry 1879


    All three figures are very nicely proportioned with some exquisite details, which unfortunately I cannot always capture with my camera phone. I acquired these to go along with another couple of figure to make a vignette. I really like the version painted as a K.R.R.C. Officer.

    A nice group of figures that fit well together in all respects, a bit of extra detailing required in one or two slight areas but nicely done Xaby and all concerned and connected with Art Soldiers. I do hope we see this range expanded.

    Very nice figures in deed reminds me the originals of Bill Horan, although I´m not keen on 54 mm, I prefere the bigger scales where you can be more expressiv.
    However I can recognise a good figure when I see it. You just forget to say that those where sculpted by Antonio Messeguer a inpressive Artist wich I had the honour to know personaly some time ago, Antonio really likes the 19 century subjects and whe can see that on his figures !
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Paulo,
