Swazi Warband.

One of this years projects was to paint up all of the figures I  have in storage before buying more - if every wargamer did this the figure hobby would collapse !.

Too this end I have just finished painting these Wargames Foundry 28mm Swazi warriors . They were allied to the British and fought with Col. Henry Evelyn Wood's column . Unlike the rest of the Natal Native Contingents they wore their full native war regalia and used the supplied army blanket as a cloak , to help distinguish them from the enemy they also wore a red/white cloth tied to their left arm .

I will be using them with TSATF rules and am thinking of classifying them as Zulus rather than N.N.C. to make them that bit better.
