Corpulent Zulu Chief


With commitments at work demanding much of my time the painting output seems to have slowed somewhat; akin, in fact, to a  dripping tap.  I have found that the only way to maintain any progress at all is to have a batch of 'one off' or solitary figures on the painting table. A case in point would be this wonderful character.  He was a bit of a 'lucky dip' as  there was no picture of him on the 'Redoubt Enterprises' website,  he was just simply listed as a 'Corpulent Zulu Chief'.


Once again the Redoubt sculpts are big, full of character and seem to take paint particularly well.   I've certainly enjoyed working with them, but again he does rather tower over the others. 


A wonderful excuse to have a go a leopard print headband though!

  7. Looks a dead spit for Cetshwayo. Anyway, if he's not, he certainly gets the pick of the pies in his tribe!

    Lovely work again, Michael.

  8. A great looking figure, he is a little bigger than the other, but I'm taller than a lot of people, so he look fine to me!!
