Here are a few more shots of my on-going New Zealand Wars project, photographed with my new little camera. The figures are all 28mm Empress Miniatures.
Colonial militia. I like the way Empress have given them each different personalities – the grizzled veteran on the left, and the kneeling young recruit. You can’t see it in the pic, but the firing figure (whom I’ve painted two of) has a dapper Napoleon III beard.
More toa with a mixture of dress and different weapons, including two with bone patu (clubs). Some of my figures are adorned with intricate tatoos – particularly visible on the thigh of the figure on the left. By the way, the camera angle has made the upper bodies and limbs of the figures in this pic look bigger than they actually are.
