Can I ask please ask for Schutztruppe German officers and Infantry for the East Africa range. I have a lot of the East Africa range but the lack of any Schutztruppe seems a pretty big whole in the range. I am starting an East Africa project using the new GEG 1914 rules so I thought I would ask.

Somebody more knowledgable than me can probably suggest a proxy. Would Boer War yeomanry work, or WWI Australians?

It's all a matter of which side they dress.... their hat




Actually schutztruppe could then be used to proxy for Dutch KNIL  Cheesy

The Australian figures are modeled with the slouch hat brim down (which is how they were worn when in action) but I have not found a good way to bend the brim up so it looks decent.

Anybody out there got a photo of the Boer War British figures wearing the slouch hat? Iím sure the brim is turned up - though not sure on which side. Iím also sure that German schutztruppe also wore the sun helmet.

Hello Leman

Photo available from https://www.flickr.com/photos/pendraken/5609861489/in/photostream/, kneeling figure with the slouch hat, alas, turned up on the sinister

Cheers

Well I suppose in some ways a war-game is a mirror image of reality.

Photos of EA Schutztruppe show them mostly in Sunhelmet - and looks more like the British Boer war sunhelmet.  So I have used Boer war Brits as EA Schutztruppe.
