Rhodesian Bush War Armies.

I have finally gotten all of my Rhodesian Bush War Minis back from my good friend Shane Hill, who painted all of the figures and the G-Car.

All of the figures and G-Car are from Eureka Miniatures, except for the African Warlord which is from Matakishi's Tea House.  Link attached Below.

The Eland 90  is a painted up Solido die cast French Panhard, which is what the Eland 90 was a copy of, supplied by the South Africans.
You can pick them up on Ebay. Same with the Unimog truck.


 Here are some pics.

BTR 40 that I picked up at the Eureka stand at CANCON 2014.

I chopped the heads of some ZANLA minis and replaced them with helmet heads out of the Bolt Action Rangers pack. I plan on using these guys for FRELIMO figures for cross border OPS into Mozambique, or fictitious African war games.

      Once you strat looking into the Rhodesian bush war, it's amazing all the scenarios you can play. Look up Operation Dingo. there's a Scenario for it in the Force On Force Bush wars Book. Well worth picking up.
