Heia Safari!


This update takes us to Darkest Africa where a small German force led by the legendary Von Lettow-Vorbeck and aided by native auxiliaries, is fighting the French, British and Belgians. These figures are part of a series of HäT sets that depict both the German Schutztruppen, Askari's and native Ruga Ruga's. Here I present the European Schutztruppe include Von Letto-Vorbeck.

The group-photo:
I have found reference for all my colour choices i.e. the different colours of headgear so I find them a very nice and colourful bunch.

The officers:

The HMG:

The foot troopers:


I intend to use them not only to play WW1 skirmish scenario's but also some Pulp scenario's if and when I get the chance.

Cheers Sander

Simply superb Sander. How you manage to paint facings and such fine detail on these wee fellas is beyond me.

PS I have tried commenting on numerous occassions but the jumbled letters and numbers on the comment moderator are often impossible to decipher...hence no comment and a frustrated follower.
Maybe it's just my failing eyesight?

Simply superb. How you manage top paint facings, cuff and seam lines on these wee fellas is beyond me.
