Empress Miniatures – Col. Henry Evelyn Wood, Woods Irregular Warrior and a Swazi Warrior

My other great passion when it comes to wargaming periods is the Colonial Period, especially the Anglo-Zulu War, Anglo-Boer War, 2nd Afghan War and the Sudan. There are some fantastic figures out there from numerous manufactures, which can be mixed all in together too make some great and colourful armies. Thus my latest addition is this fantastic set from Empress Miniatures Anglo-Zulu Range….Col. Henry Evelyn Wood, Woods Irregular Warrior and a Swazi Warrior. I have based the figures separately so that Col. Woods can be used in either the Anglo-Zulu, 1st Boer War or the Anglo-Egyptian War…..and maybe the 2nd Afghan War as well. All figures have been painted by our local and very talented painter Leroy Simpson.

  1. I've started reading your blog from the beginning and am currently in 2010. I was originally drawn to it because of the WAB content, but stayed for the sheer spectacle of the battles that you play in – so much fantastic comment. I've noticed that you credit Leroy for painting a lot of the units – the man is a machine. Just out of curiosity, how many figures do you think he's painted?

  2. Thanks for the great comments everyone and I will make sure Leroy is informed. Steven now that is a hard question to answer and I would hate to guess, but over the years I would have to say he has painted well in too the 1000's.

    All the best
