Darkest Africa Nkonde [5]

We've been pretty busy over the last couple of days so it's taken me a while to get the next unit cleaned up and based. I was surprised by the time it took to clean up a single tribal spearman but the casting lines seem more visible on the semi-clad figures than on normal ones, so extra effort is needed to smooth out the surfaces.

As a result, I've decided to scale down the size of the units from an impressive twenty four figures to a more manageable sixteen. This will cost me about one hundred points but I'll still be able to field a good five hundred points if I include all the extras. I can also add another spear armed warrior unit at a late date to make up the numbers if needs be.

Next up will be a second spear armed warrior unit, which is the equivalent of sixty four points. I'll add the spears, as I have already to the unit I've completed, but the peculiar Nkonde shields still need to be sorted out. This will have to wait until I get back to civilisation.
