Ahoy HaT Team,
The Naval Brigade were a small but valuable part of the British army that invaded Zululand in 1879. They provided Col. Pearson's column with steady dependable infantry, skilled artillery crews and a Gatling gun, all of which played a decisive role in averting the disastrous defeats suffered by the other two columns.
I made minor alterations to each of the officers to lend variety, and converted the petty officers and gun crews with careful knife-work. I also made head-swaps between the sailors to make them look more individualized.
