Kushite tribe


Here we have my latest batchpaint. A rather large collection of Kushite/ Nubians.
They are intended to be mainly used in my Tribal Africa project but could be used pitted agains other historical opponents.


 Or under the label http://kampgruppe-engel.blogspot.com/search/label/Tribal%20Africa


The miniatures are mostly from Footsoore miniatures that I bought before the Brits totaly buggered of to their own corner but the civilians are from Coblestone casting.



For painting I used the pictures at the end of this post for inspiration. I tried using some blue tints in the shadows and I think it made some really nice colours.

They dont look like my previus Kushite miniatures so I think I have to go back and raise the standard of my older miniatures.

For colour inspirations I used the following picture:

Assyrian Vs Nubian
