Sultan of Zanzibar : IHMN

I have finally got round to painting some figures....just seem to have been so busy for the last few months gaming and planning stuff. Anyway sat half finished on the painting table has been the Sultan of Zanzibars' IHMN company. The sultan himself Khalid bin Barghash and his company will find themselves fighting Colonel Cavendish but will also find his way into Darkest Africa in forthcoming CONGO adventures.





Sorry pictures are not great....I also have a few slaves to paint up😀

    1. My painting style is somewhat limited......undercoat white for these guys due to the lighter clothing. Block the base colours in then Games Workshop agrax earth shade. Then using the same colours or slightly lighter versions, highlight any raised areas. A bit of clear varnish. Then get them on the table.

  5. Ta, I do similar but my washes aren't as effective. Did you get my reply about black tree design?

    1. I think so that was the link to the web site ? You also said you wanted the special events table. I'll have to sort the list when I am back in Penrith. We are currently on holiday for a week in Northumberland. Or was it a completely different message ?
