I've just come across these pictures of Warlord Games planned plastic Zulu War British which they are launching with Empress miniatures. Apparently, these were on display at Salute but I never saw them. I am not convinced I saw the whole of the Warlord stand. It just seems to have been a few packs on a wall and a table, which was empty. I was rather disappointed by it as I was looking for the new Hail, Caesar rules but never saw them. Maybe I missed a bit. Not sure.
Anyway, I am not overwhelmed by these figues as they have the usual awkward looking arms of many plastics. Empress's metal figures are so superb, and you are never going to need that many British, that I don't see the point, really. They still look like four panel helmets, though. On the metal figures I have to file them all down and paint on the panel lines in the correct places.
More interesting will be the look of the plastic Zulus. I haven't been too happy with the Empress Zulus but maybe the plastics will be better. Due out in the Autumn, it seems.
