One of these days - time and funds permitting - I'll add the missing third section to the platoon. I'm toying with the idea of getting a pack of Old Glory British Zulu War figures, since these will be most compatible with my existing ones. I'm also tempted by their Dervish figures, since they look to be not too far removed in appearance from their Zanzibari brethren.
I am expecting ten Zanzibari rifle/musket armed figures bought from eBob to arrive through the mail soon. These might field as Wangwana, freed slaves who fought for their former overlords.
*As a side note, a former wargames manufacturer of my acquaintance made casualty figures cast from resin. His reasoning was there is no reason to use expensive white metal for such things. I might take the idea a step farther. By sculpting master figures of the fallen in Miliput/Sculpey, I could then create a silicon mold and cast casualties from Hydrostone plaster. I've sung the praises of this stuff before, as it gives really clear, crisp details, paints up well, and is very durable. Mounting the casualties on small bases would enhance the durability. Any thoughts?
