    Hello everyone.
    Got this fantastic pair from Mitches.
    The Zulu is wearing an animal skin over his shoulders and chest.Does anyone know what this was from?
    Leopard skin would be rather nice to paint but my info. says leopard skin would only be worn by senior officers.Is this correct?
    Thanks for any help.

    Hi Jon,
    You are correct, leopard skin was only worn by the royal family - generals or chiefs, the amount of leopard skin they could wear was dependant on their status.

    Thanks Richie.
    I'll go for antelope skin then unless you've got any other suggestions.
