    Brilliant! I love the flesh-tones, as well as the treatment of the skins he's wearing. Everything is just amazing. One of the nicest figures I've seen painted.

    Cheers!

    I can't help myself; this has nada to do with Jason's otherworldly paint job, but a word to Pegaso: one of the first things Shaka did when he took the helm of the Zulu nation was to outlaw the wearing of sandals by warriors. To bring his point home he had the ground at the royal kraal stewn with thorns and then made the impi's dance for hours. The dance features lifting the feet as high as possible and then crashing them down on the ground. Anyone who flinched was executed. The warriors got the message. This figure is post-Shaka by virtue of the stabbing spear. At least this is the way I understand it.--

    David,

    The key term here is "original manufacturer". As Mike D. stated above, the Zulu and Bromhead figures sculpted by David Grieve were originally produced by Realmodels. Certainly that was the name on my kit way back when. I bought the kit when it was first released. Perhaps Rosedale acquired the masters at a later date?
