Sneak peek: Warlord Zulus!

A couple of sprues of Warlord Games new Zulu warriors showed up in my mailbox the other day.

Here are some sprue shots:

They sent me one sprue of each of the married and unmarried warriors. Each sprue will make four figures. One half of the sprues are the same on both, then the other half is unique, giving you 6 different bodies and 15 different heads. There are a variety of arms with moulded in weapon options. The option for the rifle firing figure has both arms moulded onto the rifle, which is nice. I remember trying to glue together the Wargames Factory British infantry with two separate arms and the separate rifle, making it awkward to line everything up in the way you'd like. The details on the shields, loin cloths and weapons are nicely sculpted and the positioning of the figures is such that there isn't any smudging of detail where the halves of the mould meet. As you can see the torsos are nicely animated giving a dynamic looking iButhu when they're all done.
