    Warlord Anglo-zulu wars British sprue pictures?

    I was just wondering if anyone had these, what they thought of the kit, and more importantly if they had pictures of the sprue and/or assembled brits?

    The models are pretty decent and are easy to work with. The poses are a little limited, but as Warlord have worked together with Empress Minis you can always sub in some metal Empress minis for some extra variation.
    I dont have pictures of the sprue handy, but you can see some of the finished work over on the Warlord Forums.

    Cheers it was more the sprue pictures I was after.

    I have some of the Empress models and I'm happy with everything there, and theres plenty of variety in the range. But warlord now have a rather tasty starter army available which I can get hold of for around 50, so I'm wondering just how multipart they are - whether its worth sticking to empress for the quality/variety, or bagging a pile of plastics on the cheap.

    I did a couple of searches for pics of the sprues and I can't seem to find them anywhere. I would have figured somebody would have done a review with pics or info about the sprue.

    Re: Warlord Anglo-zulu wars British sprue pictures?

    The bodies and legs are one piece (except for the kneeling figures where one leg is separate. There are 4 bodies and 6 heads on the sprue if I remember correctly with arms to have the models firing or have one model reloading. There is also a sergeants arm in the set as well. TBH they aren't as multi-part as say a GW sprue, and there is a definite lack of posability to the models. However, they are very very cheap and are nicely sculpted with realistic proportions. They wont look out of place alongside the Empress minis and once they are painted you'd need to look very closely (or lift them up) to notice much difference.

    Re: Warlord Anglo-zulu wars British sprue pictures?

    Just to clarify: there are 2 sets of arms for aiming the rifle, one for a chap reloading, and a 4th with rifle held low, angled up ready to bayonet some poor chap!

    Also is a spare sword-bayonet and arm for converting extra sergeants.

    Liked very much, went together and painted up nicely, a bit limited with the poses apart from head orientation. I suspect you could get a bit more variation by carving up but only had one box so far so havnt tried it yet: More in the post though for my birthday, curtesy of my fiance, so might be more adventurous with them!

    Do you know, you're right, I can't find a sprue image either. Weird.

    Re: Warlord Anglo-zulu wars British sprue pictures?

    I cannot provide photos of it either. Will it remain a "no-photo available" sprue?

    I do know I have seen some photos of Warlord's "Zulu period" minies (greens?) towards the end of last year.

    Heck.....Warlord Games minies/sprues......They've got to be good ones.

    Im wondering how they fit next to Wargames Factory ones. I have a couple of boxes of them and would like to expand them. Or a comparison to the Perry Minitures ACW Confederates. Looking to do some Boer gaming and if the size is right its off to the races.

    No close up pictures, but I found a youtube review of the whole box:

    They walk you through the British sprue around the 4 minute mark. Again, no close up shots, but you'll see in the video that the sprues are quite sparse anyway.

    Sounds like a smart future wife. Have you helped her pick out her first army? It's a very good thing when a spouse encourages the wargamer spouse to have more goodies.

    Yeah I picked the right one!

    I wont be introducing her to the hobby, for starters she has enough of her own, but its not something she is interested in at all. Also having been thrashed by her in a game of Risk I have no desire to see what her dice do in any other game

    You just described how my wife and I have gotten along for many years. She does listen, she 'supports" my playing with toy soldiers. Still says it IS cheaper than than many, many hobbies of spouses of her friends.

    Before checking in here, I peeked in at Warlord Game's site to drool over the WA-zwBsp photos.
