In a bid to even up the sides, I have been beavering away on my Forest Tribes column. Deep in the jungle our fearless adventurer has discovered an old and mysterious race of Pygmies led by their eccentric and demonstrative King.
These are, of course, from the 'Wargames Foundry' Darkest Africa range and comprise of the Pygmy Chief Mbuti and his Pygmy Bodyguard. I have selected my favourite six sculpts for our encounter along with the freebie spearman that was being given away at 'Salute'.*
*He is the chap with the fixed spear and a rather splendid pair of earrings.
Although not immediately apparent, I have based them on slightly smaller 20mm metal washers to help convey their diminutive scale. What they lack in stature these fearsome warriors will make up for in fortitude, particularly with the addition of the King whose addition to the group sees their Bravery Stat rise from a D8 to a D10.
