I am sure you have seen before on the odd model i paint, that basing... is something that i like to keep simple, and usually only use static grass. Well i am trying to change it, and i have seen great things with these tuft type bits of basing. knowing i can not compete with it, i thought why not pick some up, and give them a try, just for the sake of something different.
Gamers Grass provides a range of grass and scenic products in a variety of colours. These self adhesive basing tufts come in a variety of sizes and colours. Most tufts are 4-6mm tall. XL tufts are approximately 12mm tall. Moss and Bright Green are about 2mm tall.
Pack contains 2 sheets of tuft approximately 8 cm by 6 cm in length. Each sheet contains approximately 25 individual tufts of varying sizes. Some of the smaller tufts have more tufts per sheet.
Lets crack it open and take a closer look...

I fancied trying something new for my model basing, rather then just using the same old same old staic grass. The thing is though..... i hate mixing things up to use, i done mix paints (i can never get the right colour) and im no good at multi layer basing, so i was looking for something that have a mix of all i want in one place, and i found it..........

Time to look at a project for the leaders of my Anglo Zulu War, Zulu force. Trying to find suitable models in 28mm was tough, until i found these from North Star
This pack represents the leaders (Induna) of the Matabele amabutho, (the regiments). The head-dresses and Leopardskins they wear are all symbols of rank.
The Matabele are an African tribe whose origins were in the mighty Zulu Nation, so they can work perfectly for Zulus as well. During the early 19th Century they rebelled and create an infamous name for themselves as they escaped North to settle in what is now Zimbabwe. The Matabele Kingdom was defeated in 1893 and 1896 by Cecil Rhodes and his British South Africa Company.

Today we look at the Kazon predator. As always I keep it under 50points and use only the cards that come in the pack. The Kazon ships so far have had wide 180 degree front arcs, so lots of fire angles. The Predator class is not the most manoeuvrable ship, but should be able to stand in a slugging match in the main line. so what did we use?
