Excellent find!

Plynkes' awesome Masai army has already inspired me to do them as well.

Grand figures the Masai... beautiful and fearsome warriors!

Ah, Masai! I'd love to get a load of them, but the thought of painting the shields brings me out in a cold sweat. My Azande are bad enough - if it hadn't been for the shields I would have finished them all by now, rather than about a quarter of them  Sad

Looking forward to seeing your figures all nicely painted  Wink

If you check out Howard Hawks' superb Hatari!, with Duke Wayne, no less, you can get some nice colour shots for reference, in the scene at the Masai watering hole and the Warusha (Arusha) dance ceremony for Dallas.

Wayne supposedly received the nickname 'Little Duke' from a local fireman as a youngster, since he apparently went everywhere with his dog 'Duke'.  He much preferred it to his real given name, Marion, and answered to it for the rest of his life.

I use hairs from a strong street sweep or outdoor push broom
It's a hard plastic that can be worked with a cutter for spear point or arrow feathers.



it's my favorite material because it's can't be broken or bent during a game...
