Where Are My New Friends?

Our playful Mangani (the giant ape species of the Tarzan series) gorilla, Kubwa-Upendo (Big-Love) is looking for his new friends that have disappeared leaving some new toys.

Kubwa-Upendo was having such a good time playing with the funny tiny pale and dark apes with no fur, then they ran away.

At least they left their new friend Kubwa-Upendo many of their play things, head coverings, sharp pointy things, boom sticks, and lots of other interesting stuff.
Kubwa-Upendo is a plastic piece for African adventures.

The barrels are simple wood pieces that I picked up from Beverly's Craft shops for .79 cents for a package of two. The package is Creative Time-7032 Wood Barrels-Donaco Sales Co. Modesto, CA.
A cheap and fast way to make a supply depot of barrels.

When speed counts-send for the mounted infantry

The 1/13 Imperial Mounted Infantry advances quickly to harass some Zulu scouts. In the opening moves of the 1879 Zulu War, each British column had at least one squadron of Imperial Mounted Infantry for rapid deployment.
Armed with the heavy hitting .45 cal. Martini Henry (officers carried a pistol, sword and if the wanted a rifle as well), the soldiers were trained to fight from the saddle if needed but were really designed for rapid movement via horse and then to dismount and fight on foot.
These are metal 25mm pieces from Minifig, I painted them for the centennial of the Zulu War in the 1970's.

More Wine Mistress?

Vinuma, a house slave to the family of Tribune Gaius Travus Lucacius, offers wine in gold goblets to her masters wife and her "guest."

Vinuma has learned to serve and not notice the male visitors that frequent the household when the Tribune is away on official business.

She feels quite lucky that the tastes of the visitors are sedated by the Mistress and do not require more personal service from Vinuma...Master Travus requires more than enough of her "attention."

Vinuma is a 28mm metal piece from Warlord.
