Anglo Zulu War Married Zulu Impi

The Zulu army was a formidable foe. Well-trained, well-led, and well-equipped
for campaigns, the Zulu regiments were the terror of Africa. Created by the
great Shaka, founder of the nation, each regiment was composed of small
companies who trained together, and a regiment could be 1,000 men strong.They
were then brigaded together to form divisions that could move at great speed and
with drilled precision, forming the classic Zulu attack formation of the Horns
of the Buffalo.

The military system formed units into married and unmarried units, so a cadre
of young men would be forced to remain unmarried on the King's orders until
they had 'washed their spears' in the blood of their enemies. They are armed
with throwing spears, smoothbore muskets and the deadly stabbing short spear
whilst their patterned ox-hide shields help identify their parent regiment.

Once they were blooded, and only then, would they sew in the characteristic
head ring which is the symbol of a mature and married warrior, showing his much
enhanced status in society.

These then are the finest warriors of a fierce and proud army of 40,000 men,
eager to preserve Zululand from all invaders, Swazi, Boer or British!
