I have just finished basing this Regiment which I did correctly the first time around. The last Regiment I've had to put some some Winsor and Newton Ink on to darken them and then carefully matt varnished the Ink afterwards. They are not noticeably that much different to the earlier ones now. I am getting faster at painting these Regiments so have just undercoated another unit to start on straight away.
I am waiting for someone to tell me that the Headdress is all wrong for this Regiment as I don't have much in the way of references for Zulus.
