Fantastic brushwork, particularly on the tartan  Shocked

And could I ask where you got the tribal mask in the second picture? Is it DIY or the result of cutting the head off a figure, or is there a commercial source I don't know about?

It's part of the base on the figure, Northstar Miniatures Congo range, not sure if you can get it individually.

redzed - thanks for clearing up the mystery.  I think I will try my luck with North Star and see what they say.

Very nice, I have the 1st 3 female figures but mine are only 28mm and I can't get the sort of detail you have managed with these - they must be 100mm at least. Laugh Laugh Laugh

Seriously though these are very good, I do like the white painted natives, is this your fancy or is it historically accurate? Sorry if it's a dumb question.

I understand that there are a number of tribes known to use white body paint. I'm sure I remember reading about several Ethiopian tribes who did/do. There will almost certainly be something online. I'm sure someone with better knowledge than me can tell you who.
