Zulu Wars in 28mm

Just to show that I'm not hopelessly restricted to 2mm & 6mm, here is a shot of some of my fairly extensive 28mm Zulu War collection. Click to enlarge, SVP.

The scene, Peitermaritzburg. Hoping to inspire a company of the Natal Native Contingent, Lt. Vereker takes up a shield and leads them forth on parade. The 'powers that be' are not impressed. "Good God, Durnford!" says my Lord Chelmsford. "That officer of yours has gone positively native! Where the Devil does he think he is? Ireland?"

  1. Must be quite the "eye twister" going from 2mm to 28mm! ;-)

    Regardless how armed, the officer is doing what a good Victorian leader should be doing...leading from the front!

    Look forward to seeing these. Nice job.
