Blue Moon Africans

Blue Moon Manufacturing: Darkest Africa range has some superb African warriors. Choose from 11 tribes each with a unique costume and combine with your choice of six shield shapes.

The trouble is they are all spear armed and Kongo warriors seemed to prefer the bow. They are probably more suitable for East Africa.

  1. The Grumpys are great.
    Lots of character, animation and variation in a bag.
    I recently got some for an Age of Exploration Portuguese band.

    Also got a band of Indonesian / Malays, fierce looking chaps.
