More additions to the Forest Tribes of the Congo, these Pygmy Archers are again from 'Wargames Foundry' Darkest Africa range. Delightful sculpts that I painted in the same way as the previous members of Chief Mbuti’s tribe, which can be found here.
As with the last batch these were again based on 20mm metal washers to help convey their diminutive scale. The Pygmy Archers are unique in the game insomuch as although classed as one unit, there are played as two distinct groups allowing you the opportunity of harrying an opponent from all sides. Add in the 'poison' and 'tiny' rules and these tenacious chaps can be a real thorn in the side of any expedition.
Although small, and painted to tie together as a unit, something I tend to find difficult due to my butterfly brain, I have to confess that I really enjoyed painting these and couldn't resist a group shot at the end. Although I just didn't have the patience to string those bows!
