Hi Guys,i`m not into war gaming,but into in a big way collecting mass formations. I spent Donkeys Years painting Napoleonics, without so much as a day off. Now I mainly collect,and scratch build stuff at my leisure.
i have always wanted to portray one for one figures at Rorke`s Drift and i have more than enough British Soldiers now to be able to do that in 1/32 scale figures. Which are all Beautiful Toy Figures.This is by far a cheaper option then doing it in 28mm,and 1/72 scale figures are rubber so that too was out of the question. I will need Officers and others which i will fetch in later. The main thing is it is a doable now.
All the Figures can be viewed in detail within my Topic`s BB`s Toy Figures 9 & 10
With having now 432 Zulus,another 10 boxes will give me 612 which is my aiming point. While making Zulu,they only had 500 Zulu to make the famous Movie.
Taking them off the sprue! I have 360 British Soldiers. I bought in bulk avoided postal charges. Having 40 of these in the Marching Pose which is great.
105 Soldiers at Rorkes Drift. So eventually over 600 figures will be painted,and i can add more Zulus if and when i like. They will be painted in traditional toy soldier style! Just how i like them.
I will scratch build Rorke`s Drift and its outbuildings too. It will take ages but will be great fun.
This is to confirm that i just bought the remaining boxes of Zulus,and a few extra .The Zulu Army numbers 846. ______________ I also bought lots of brushes,and throughout the collecting i did not pay one Penny in way of Postage. Which has ment more figures for my money.
This one was a simple quest. Thanks for Looking. BB
