    Hi Kev,
    This is a nice niche bust from from the AZW and you have done a very nice job so far. It's nice to see a few more of the planeteers are picking up the Zulu war mantle. By the way is this still available????? I need one of these:facepalm:
    cheers

    Hello Kevin, great work on this trooper, the effect on the leather belt looks very real.
    I like the color you've painted his tunic, really nice shade of blue.
    Best regards

    Hi Guys ,

    Ritchie ,

    You are right a niche subject , the Zulu Wars are an amazing mix of uniforms ...all great potential ....a nice job so far???? I thought I had finished it!!!!!:nailbiting:
    ...I will see if Jim has any left over and PM you accordingly

    MM,

    Thank you for your comments ..I too like the belts , in the Opsrey book the one going over the left shoulder was white ..I wasn't too keen so did both in leather effects ..always a challenge and good to play around getting the effects .

    Vitalino and Keith ...cheers for the comments always appreciated ..glad you like him .

    Thanks to all for looking in
