Field Forces for TMWWBK

Here are my first field forces for The Men Who Would Be Kings, first up in the British Infantry for the Anglo Zulu War. We have a large selection of manufacturers. The British infantry are a mix of Foundry, Empress and Black Tree Design, the artillery is from Rapier Miniatures, the NNC comprise Foundry, Wargames Factory and Casting Room Miniatures, finally the Natal Native Horse are from Empress.

Coming soon, a Gatling gun and crew, rocket batteries and some vignette pieces.

The Naval Brigade where often used in Victorian times, being immediately available, deploying from ships where needed. This is a versatile force useable all over the colonial world from Africa to Asia. These figures come from Perry Miniatures Sudan range.

My Zulu force is made from Wargames Factory plastic figures mixed with Casting Room Miniatures and some odd Foundry figures from eBay. These six groups will be added to with more Wargames Factory and Married and Unmarried tribesmen from Warlord Games bringing the total to 12 groups. These need reorganising in to regiments based on their shield patterns.

I am currently working away on the Boer figures from Black Tree, as they are in mixed civilian dress they are taking a while.
