I've just finished off the next batch of Zulus, these along with the other 60 figures will belong to the uKhandempemvu regiment which was present at iSandlwana. uKhandempemvu means "head with black and white markings", an alternative name for the regiment was umCijo meaning “the sharpener”. This regiment was unmarried and probably formed in the late 1860's:

These figures have slightly different shields (small white spots on the left of some of the shields) and once based the bases will be mixed with the other Zulus to form 6-7 companies of 3-5 bases each. I've fixed the figures to their bases since taking these pictures.
