Bwana Bill has written a few great posts regarding The colonial experience with Zulus which you can find searching our blog.
A couple of years ago I started on my 28mm Zulu project. It’s been shelved for the time being but I thought today would be a good excuse to post how I paint my Zulu Warriors.
The first thing I do is decide how I can make the process as quick and easy as possible. I’m a lazy git and really don’t want to spend much time painting hundreds of Zulus. But I want hundreds of painted Zulus!
Here’s what I use, in the order that I use them for my “Married Zulus”:
Krylon Camouflage Brown
Citadel (Games Workshop aka GW) Chaos Black for hair and band
GW "Leather" for straps
GW Bleached Bone as the base color for leggings.
Shields GW Bleached Bone highlighted GW Skull White, with brown splotches of Tamiya Nato Brown.
GW Bolt Gun Metal for iron blade
GW Bleached Bone for blades
Brush on my home made magic dip. GW Brown Ink + Future Floor Finish
I have only painted Old Glory Married Zulus so far.
