I finally managed to get some painting done. Painfully slow but finished two units for my Anglo-Zulu Wars project. FIrst off, a company of British Infantry. These are Black Tree that I got a few months back as part of a large order during one of their sales. I have to say that the service I have received from Black Tree Designs has been terrific. I was missing a couple of Zulus from an order of hundreds and within no time they sent me the missing miniatures plus some for my trouble and also a big bag of spare shields and spears. Top stuff.
On to the British Infantry. To be honest, I felt like I was painting these with a roller. They are not my best but will do to fill out the ranks.
I have added another artillery unit – Russell’s Rocket battery. This model is the Black Tree Hale Rocket trough and two crew. I have added a Redoubt British infantry man carrying a crate of ammo (or in this case perhaps rockets).
