I HAVE FOR AUCTION A SIX PIECE SET OF MY HAND PAINTED PLASTIC CONTE ZULU WARRIORS. PART OF KING CETHWAYOS ZULU IMPI. THESE ARE 54MM, 1/32 SCALE. A NICE SET TO ADD TO YOUR COLLECTION, OR TO START ON.
A SHORT HISTORY: I FIRST STARTED TO TRY AND PAINT TOY SOLDIERS WHEN I WAS A KID. I HAD ALL THE SETS, THE BATTLE OF THE BLUE AND GREY, FORT APACHE, THE ALAMO, BEN HUR AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. ALL THE PLASTIC SOLDIERS I COULD GET AND BUILT HUGE ARMIES WITH THEM. BUT I GOT TIRED OF THE SHADES OF GREEN AND COLORS THEY CAME IN BECAUSE I WANTED THEM TO LOOK REAL AND BE ABLE TO TELL THEM FROM THE GOOD GUYS AND THE BAD GUYS IN THEIR TRADITIONAL COLOR UNIFORMS. I WOULD PLAY WITH THEM, GIVE THEM TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AND WHEN I GOT TIRED OF THEM, I WOULD PUT THEM IN BOXES AND STORE THEM IN THE ATTIC. AS I GOT OLDER, I GAVE THEM ALL AWAY ONE DAY AND HAVE REGRETTED IT EVER SINCE. OVER THE YEARS I STARTED GETTING SERIOUS AGAIN ABOUT PAINTING WHEN I PURCHASED SOME 15MM METAL CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS, AND MADE A DIORAMA OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE CIVIL WAR SCENES, THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG. THIS HAS BEEN MY HOBBY FOR A LONG TIME AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT MY FIGURES ARE PAINTED WITH THE UTMOST CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL, AND YOU ARE ASSURED OF GETTING A QUALITY PRODUCT. THANK YOU.
THESE FIGURES HAVE BEEN CLEANED, PRIMED AND PAINTED IN ACRYLICS
