Eritrean Askaris @ The Abyssinian Crisis


One of my ‘project blogs’ is the hypothetical and real conflict fought in Ethiopia (Abyssinia) in the interwar years. Furthering that ongoing project I’ve finished up some new Italian (Eritrean) askaris.

The Eritrean askaris the Italians mobilised and fought with in East Africa during the Italo-Ethiopian War and WW2 were amongst some of their best fighters.

In this update I am showcasing some of the latest of the paint table to spotlight these charismatic troops so as to get them to the tabletop. More to follow soon.

The figures are lovely Paul Hicks sculpts sold by Empress – some of his best work IMHO.

Find the update along with more pics at the The Abyssinian Crisis blog.
