Deutsch-Ostafrika - Feldkompagnien

Off to a good start with my Schutztruppe. I have created two Feldkompagnien using the Hat Askaris and the MGs from the Schutztruppe box.

I decided to keep the uniforms reasonably consistent as they might have appeared at the start of WW1

They will replace my old but rebased figures (link)

They are nice Will. Did they use mounted Schutztruppe in East Africa like they did in Namibia? I have some photos of the equestrian statue that used to stand in Windhoek and always fancies doing some conversions as I don't think anyone makes them.

Cheers, Andy

Very little use of horses in east Africa because of the Tsetse fly, but there is a story of one being painted to resemble a Zebra. I'll have to hunt down the reference.

I remember seeing that on the SOTCW forum last year I think.
