|Mix of figures from Perry, Black Tree, Foundry. North Star, Askari and Empress|
I decided to paint up examples of each of the figures I am using to represent the Herero during the German-Herero War of 1904. They range from Empress and Askari, which are closer to 25mm, all the way up to Tiger which approaches 30mm. I am using Vallejo paint and have given them simple bases. One or two of them were actually cast as boers but make excellent Hereros in European clothing. I'll describe the process further in subsequent posts, but for now, here they are to enjoy.
