En Garde! Both wary yet ready to strike at the first opening.

Each waiting for an opening, that fatal mistake the other warrior must make.

Thrust and parry, who will get throught the others defense first?

zulunight4.jpg

Unable to reload, Sgt. Jones only advantage is the reach his rifle and bayonet give him. Is it enough?

zulunight5.jpg

Two seasoned veterans, each good at what they do. Who will be the victor?

Will either survive the night? Will skill or luck prevail tonight?

The baracade is down, opponents face off.

Zulu figure is a new generation Power Team Figure with scratch made Zulu outfit. White fur on arms and legs is fake rabbit fur found in any fabric store. Headband, bands around arms and legs, loin cloth and shield are made from thin black leather (cut from an old black leather skirt found at a thrift store; shoulda seen the looks I got when I bought it). Zulu spear blade from sheet styrene plastic. To keep the shield stiff and not floppy, I brushed on 3 coats of Elmes glue on the back side to stiffen it. The glue dries clear.
