DBC British Army 1879

Here's our Zulu War British, De Bellis Colonial style.  Could also be used for the first rumble with the Boers as well.  Looking at the army lists, looks like we should of added another Native Shooter to make the Army 'legal'.  Extra additions to the Army can be Boers in the form of Mounted Skirmishers and Elite Rifles.

4-6 Rifles, 0-2 Rifles(Elite), 2-4 Native Shooters(Poor), 0-2 Skirmishers,

A British column ready to conquer the Zulu for Victoria!

As the Colonial period is one of my favourites, I have enjoyed seeing the images of your British and Zulu armies. I am now looking forward to seeing them in action.

All the best,
