The Beginnings

So I've decided to create my own fictional African hellhole. I know lots of other people have them, i.e. Murph with Bonglesia, and many others. But I'm in love with the idea. So, I'm shamelessly stealing the idea and running with it. For my own personal amusement of course. So I've started painting up some troops and rebels. For my little fictional country of Zangaro. (Yes, I stole the name from Frederick Forsyth's "Dogs of War". I steal because I love.)

Some of my Zangaro government troops. Equipped with ex-soviet surplus sold to them on the cheap.

Some of my Zangaro Rebels. A mix of equipment from deserters, and gotten from other sources.

More pics to come. Next up, artillery.
