I recently painted a commission for some 28mm metal Mangbetu Warriors, with Chieftains, Warriors and Civilians. The Chieftains were painted to my high Collector's 'Officer' level, with the Warriors and Civilians painted to my high Wargaming 'Call to Arms' level.

It was such a great project to paint, with a lot of bright colours and some really nice natural textures. I also painted quite a few freehand shields, which was a lot of fun!

If you are interested in some Warriors of your own, or any other project, then just let me know. I'm free for commissions next Spring.
