19th Century Ruga-Ruga with Gripping Beast Plastics



Hven´t been much painting lately but I have at least managed to paint the last minis from the Gripping Bests plastic medieval Arab Spearmen and Archers box that I use to build me a 19th century Zanzibar Slaver force. Pictures below show the 12 Ruga-Ruga Bandits/Mercenaries.

In The Men Who Would Be Kings rules I probably will run them as Poorly Armed Irregular Infantry with Sharpshooters and Field Craft @ 5 points.

Poorly Armed but with Sharpshoter as they most often used Antiqued Muskets loade with stones, metal scrap, marbells etc, more like a short ranged shootgun, i.e increased Firing Value due to the Sharpshooter option.

  6. There's something about these guys that is just great. I guess its the colorful striped dresses :) I hope you post pics of the games (and maybe even reports?) of the games when they get on the field.
