"Zulus Sir! Thousands of 'em!"
Basically, It's going to be a small mod initially with custom battles only (maybe a campaign later) that is about the Anglo - Zulu war in the 19th century, with the Zulu tribes united under Shaka battling against the British Empire and their Boer allies. If you've seen the films 'Zulu' or 'Zulu Dawn' you will know what I'm talking about. If you haven't I believe the first one can be found on Youtube.
I've got alot of the mod sorted out, including music, sounds and the like, but what I desperately, desperately need is a modeller to help with this project. The mod itself will only include about 6-8 units in total - As I said, it's a small mod - and each of these units will look rather similar to one another. I'm a useless modeller, and this is potentially a relatively short job for one experienced in that most holy of arts .
Anyway. That's all. I'm not accepting other team members, but if anyone would like to contribute with useful pictures, they'd be most welcome.
The focus of the mod is going to be more on fun than accuracy or realism, and so, as there are a number of different regiments involved on the British side, I'd rather excercise a bit of artistic license and just come up with a generic british rifleman and cavalryman for example. The same goes for the Zulus.
I've been working on some placeholder units to keep until I can get some new models, but in an effort to draw in the punters, I've decided to show you some screens:
