Andy has finished painting his Forest Tribes Congo Army
and he has done a great job on them.


Leading his Faction is the Pygmy King (with one of his wives accompanying him)  he leads his men well as his special rule is that for as long as he is alive all the Pygmies have a D10 bravery

Andy's other main character is his Witch-doctor - really like the way Andy has painted this model up with the crazy eyes look !  for when he does his ritual sorcery (its all mumbo jumbo to my Whitemen explorers faction I can tell you that much)

He has one other character model (for when he isn't leading Pygmy warriors) and thats his Chieftain model, this plump warrior looks like he has had all the comforts of being the Chief far too long , great model !  His special rule is quite good as he can draw two totem cards at the start of each turn (instead of one)

The Core of his army are 2 units of Pygmy Archers - nasty little blighters with their poison arrow tips ... and being so tiny they can hide quite easily as they can not be targeted if in high area terrain unless within 6" .... very handy skill

Andy has a unit of Pygmy Warriors which also nasty little buggers with their harassment skill they have as they get to shoot before they charge at you !

Then there's the Cannibals !  a truly horrible thought for the Whitemens Expedition plump retired officer - as these savages lock eyes with you - thinking of their lunch quite literally

A unit of Warriors , these are the core of the tribes men, wearing scary face masks to frighten the enemy ..... not that this Englishman is scared of such things .. what what
Very cool figures and love the paint job on these guys.

Two units of Young Warriors, these are young lads that have to prove their worth in battle before the tribe accept them in the warrior class .... after all who wants to be lumped with the boring gatherer's ....

Then there's the small but very deadly Hunters unit, these guys look very cool in their warpaint  ... Photo is a tad blury sorry

 And last but not least their is the fancy lads of the Tribe... all dressed up to the hilt in feathers and beads .... its the Scared Warriors of the Tribe ... these can be horrible to face if you have stress tokens on your unit as they get extra attacks/shots.

Well there you have it a very good Congo army ...... hopefully get some of my units done this week and next as we are heading over to the Wairapara to put on a demo game of this , should be quite fun.
