Battle of Rorke's Drift  1979, Anglo-Zulu War by Vulpine

When this opportunity came up I thought... I'd live to do a die-o-Rama!
I love the Anglo zulu wars and I have a massive bag of both sides to paint up.

So, I started by twisting some Zulus to look like they have just took a volley and some posses as if dead. I also did some mini set ups, like the jumping Zulu being shot by the officer, a dead red coat hunched over the wall,  the two snipers on the roof and a red coat in combat with a Zulu warrior.

Overall I'm quite pleased with it as its only been a year since I escaped from games-workshops hold and discovered another scale!

Hope you enjoyed looking at it as much as I have making and painting it!

Just to try, my Undead Tomb Guards for my Tomb King army:

They are not really impressive bcs I don't have much technique, but all the steps to make the details and the huge amount of skellies are its strong points.

Not chance, but we will try.
