German Askaris from Ingo

I am glad, that new masters are comming up faster now again.

Ingo sculpted several German Askaris for German Eastafrica. In the first pictures I had to tell him about the bearded faces and the early 19th century bayonett.

In the meantime he changed it, but I have no photos for it. New poses will also come. I suggested kneeling and lying firing poses, also loading poses. And a charge to push the Indian and British infantry back into the sea at Tanga would be a nice addition.

The challenge will be the battle beees in 1/72:-)

And for the case, that Ingo takes a look here too, some suggestions for poses:-)

  1. They are wearing shoes, whilst the drawings show them barefoot. Will you be offering two types of Askari's or should you stick to shoe-less models only?

  2. Hi Glenn,

    I can't tell now, will have to talk to Ingo. Both versions are possible. At Tanga they had shoes, wich they lost over the years (as they did the rest of their uniforms). These later uniforms are shown by the HAT set.


  3. It's probably much too,late but have you chaps seen these?

    Wonderful watercolours of late war askari in action, on patrol and in camp.
