Collecting an Ethiopian force for this project was an absolute joy – the mixture of tribal and regular / semi-regular forces was great fun to collect and paint. The majority of the figures used were Paul Hicks sculpts from the Anglian (now Empress Miniatures) range, but I also added figures from Askari Miniatures in the USA. Some of the figures intended for the 1880s are also suitable, including Castaway Arts and Bicorne Miniatures. Here is a small gallery of some of the models.
