I don't think any of the browns are dark enough for the Zulus. I am considering the same question for my Fuzzy-Wuzzies.
I have decided I will likely go with a white and then airbrush the skin dark, followed by hand painting.
Th other option is to use a graffiti artist's spray. There is a brand called Montana Gold, that has hundreds of colours. Luckily I can get them at a local high-end art shop.
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
I second that Parus, someone told me this a few years back and it works great, I did get lazy though when faced with 300 Zulus and airbrushed them Bestial brown and then gave them a Strong tone AP shade/varnish, so if you have an airbrush johnm then this method worked quite well as well and got them on the table super fast, well apart from the patterns on the shields.
Is there any chance that some of you chaps could post a pic or two of the results of your reccomended methods please? I'd love to find a technique that takes less time than mine as I'm at risk of missing a deadline for a game atm.
