Does anyone sell heads with havelocks that would fit on Perry plastic Zulu war British infantry?

Glengarry5, We sell them and I have been told quite a few times by customers how well the parts mix. We also sell lots of other types of 28mm ACW heads. I hope that helps.

Just curious … Is this what "havelock" means? I couldn't find many pictures of hair from that period.

Thanks Steve Barber, do you have pictures?

Havelocks are cloth coverings usually worn over kepi's with a neck curtain. Think classic "Beau Geste" French Foreign Legion.

Havelocks were named after a British general of thr India mutiny who popularized them.

Geesh, was I wayyyyyy off. Thanks for clearing that up.

My searches all came back as names of towns, haircut styles (past and present), and anything but the right thing.

Again thanks,

Dan

The first four tribespersons are clearly grenadiers.
