Both armies are painted to a high standard and are based on 2mm thick 60mm x 30mm mdf bases with the exception of the bearers for the Force Publique which are based on 25mm washers.
The miniatures are all metal from Wargames Foundry, with the exception of some of the Azande musketmen - they are from Copplestone Castings and sculpted by Mark Copplestone, who also sculpted the Wargames Foundry Azande minis. The baggage base for the Azande are exclusive Nickstarter models from North Star.
While they have been based for Death in the Dark Continent, they can easily be used for other systems. But for Death in the Dark Continent the 300 pt. armies consist of the following:
1 base - Chief, with Elite Skirmishers with breech-loaders (3 minis)
3 bases - Elite Skirmishers with breech-loaders (6 minis)
6 bases - Skirmishers with spear (12 minis)
8 bases - Elite Skirmishers with throwing knives (16 minis)
11 bases - Skirmishers with muskets (22 minis)
Baggage, here represented by the chiefs family (3 minis)
62 minis in total
- of course you can choose for some of the musket bases to represent more breech-loader armed bases.
1 base - Chief, with Elite Soldiers with repeaters (3 minis)
6 bases - Volunteer Askaris: Soldiers with breech-loaders (18 minis)
9 bases - Conscript Askaris: Raw Soldiers with breech-loaders (27 minis)
Baggage, here represented by 7 bearers
55 minis in total
I am looking to get £200 per army, or if someone is interested in both £350 - plus £15 postage per army.
Let me know in the comments if you're interested and how I can get in contact with you. And feel free to share this blog post.
Here are some pictures of the armies:
