I have a Bornu & Kanem army in 15mm for my African Napoleonics, which has similar figures to the Hausa Kingdoms. Irregular Miniatures do most of them. I never got round to doing a Napoleonic Hausa army though.

Problem is now I'm switiching to 10mm, so want Pendraken to do all these armies in their deliciousness!

An excellent start to a fascinating army Will, I'll look forward to seeing more.

Mine you I think you're a bit balmy to alter the faces of 200+ 15mm figures.

If you are taking advice from Techno, does that include the 10 best ways to deposit an offering of blood on your little men? Cheesy

Interesting to read about your Grandfather, who probably knew my wife's late God Father, Brian Fenton, who worked in Jos and at Kurra Falls. Maybe your mother might have known him? Anyway, the Hausa colourful robes would have only really been worn by the Emir's bodyguard etc. Most other cloth would have been fairly plain and one colour, as the top and trousers are always the same. The head dress would be any colour, but again fairly plain. If you start adding in Tuareg or Boozo, then the blues come into their own.

Terrific, Will !!

Those are coming along spiffingly .

Very interesting to read about your Grandfather, a great way for you to remember him Smiley

I totally agree.  Smiley....A wonderful 'personal' project.

Mind you I think you're a bit barmy to alter the faces of 200+ 15mm figures.

It IS rather a lot !!  Grin Grin Grin.....But Will's doing a damn fine job !

Sorry Will, but I am a bit confused. Nothing  unusual there, you might well say! I know precious little about either the area or period, but I have never heard of the Huasa people. Is this yet another example of my ignorance, or should that  be the Hausa people?  Or are they someone completely different, with a similar spelling?

It's a typo, it should be Hausa.
