28mm Zulu Impi

I have not done anything on this project for a while. Got side-tracked by other things and real life.

I have made all my Zulu regiments 36 figures so far. All are individually based on 25mm rounds that slot into custom made six slot sabot bases. Sitting in boxes are about the same number of miniatures in unpainted lead.  Almost all the models are Black Tree Designs. Their regular sales make them appealing for the budget conscious wargamer. I brought some plastic Warlord Games Zulus and British infantry during one of their sprue sales but to be honest, once I got them I was just not happy with them. Great miniatures but lacking the heft that I like. There are a few Redoubt Miniatures in the Impi so far – mostly command figures.

My intention is to make all the regiments that fought at Isandlwana.  I certainly think that Zulus look just fantastic on the table top in numbers.
