Figures

For the Herero War, I will be using the following 15mm figures from Old Glory.  I owe a debt of thanks to Dr. Roy Jones who helped me greatly in determining which Old Glory figures would be the best to represent the various forces in the Herero War.

Germany

Senior Officers - BOX11 - Allied Mounted Generals/Officers: French, German, US, British, Russia
Schutztruppe - BOX10 - German Far Eastern Brigade Infantry and Cavalry
Landungkorps - BOX6A - Sailors #1: British and Russian
Marine-Infanterie - BOX03 - Italian Bersaglieri, German See Battalion, Armed European Civilians
Bastards - BOX10 - German Far Eastern Brigade Infantry and Cavalry
Feldkanone - BOX12 - Artillery #2: Russian, British, and British Naval
Maschinenkanone -
Revolverkanone - SUD17A
Gebirgsgeschutz -

Herero

Foot - COW12 - Dismounted Boers
Shock Troops - BOX03 - Italian Bersaglieri, German See Battalion, Armed European Civilians
Infiltrators - BOX10 - German Far Eastern Brigade Infantry and Cavalry
Mounted - COW13 - Mounted Boers
Command - BOX11/COW14 - Allied Mounted Generals/Officers: French, German, US, British, Russia/Boer Artillery and Mounted Generals


For the Abushiri Rebellion, a mix of figures will most likely need to be used as one company is not making all the figures needed for the Wissmanntruppe and the Zanzibaris.  This is my proposed list:

Germany

Senior Officers - BOX11 (Old Glory 15s)
Marine-Infanterie - BOX03 (Old Glory 15s)
Sudanese Askari - 15DDA-112 (Blue Moon)
Zulu Askari - 15DDA-112 (Blue Moon)
Somali Askari - 15DDA-112 (Blue Moon)
Blue Moon Askaris

Zanzibaris

Arabs - various packs from East Riding Miniatures Coastal Arabs
Swahilis - various figures from the ERM range look like Swahilis

My only concerned with using ERM figures is I believe they will be rather small as compared to the Blue Moon range.  Will be determined once I buy figures from both companies.
