Great sets of figures, a couple of questions though? How can you tell a single Zulu Warrior, from a married one, and I thought Zulu's where supposed to be scared of Horses?

Splendid work - the detail is outstanding in such a small scale.

Married Zulus had "head rings", unmarried had None. Also, unmarried men had less white on thier shields..apart from some elite unmarried Regiments.
As for them being scared of horse..some of the leaders rode horses and there were apparently mounted Scouts. I think "Zulus fear horses" Comes from them killing any captured from colonial Forces “because they were the feet of the white men.”
