28mm Modern African Technicals


I picked these up a couple of years ago for around £5.00 on e-bay when I first kicked off the African project, the plan was always to crew them up for adventures in Africa, but other projects came along... However when I saw the latest upgrade from Spectre I figured I should dust them off and finally finish the project.


The crew are from Force of Arms, I am not sure if  they have been picked up by Empress or Warlord it would be a shame not to see them on the market. Adding together the crew and vehicles the total cost is around £9.50 when compared to those on offer from Spectre and Empress whose offerings range from between £19.00 & £25.00
It feels like a good deal to me espically as the vehicles are ready painted.

 

Very nice but not sure I can wait until Spetember.....



I have mounted a DShK Heavy machine gun on both to give the militia a punch, roughed up the paintwork a little and given them a earthen wash to give them a more lived in feel.


The crew figures are painted in a part civilian and part military uniform to allow them to be used for any of the warlord factions within Zikanga.
