I was catching up with my podcast listening and in a Ghost Army Podcast, the guys were expressing a desire for someone to bring some Ethiopians to an event. Hearing that made me think that it would be worthwhile to show some of mine here given that I don't do facebook or other social media. I'm not the best painter, historian or photographer so set your expectations accordingly.

In shammas with rifles.

Regulars

Imperial Guard (color basically taken from CIV 5)

In shammas with hand weapons

Harar Guard (Fictitious probably closer to Italian askari in older or dress uniforms. Slightly modded Zoauves, obviously)
Image

The basing come from this novel. Apparently they come out right after the rainy season.

I've got a few weapons's crews that I need to photgraph, some cavalry and minis that need basing and yet more that need painting.

Cool stuff. The bases really to these disparate paint schemes together. What list do you use for the Ethiopians?

Craig Baxter put together a very informative list that's hosted on this very website.

Also managed to edit in the correct photo for the "Harar Guard".

Managed to base up some more Ethiopians.

Image
These are mostly Copplstone Somalis

Image
Somalis with guns.  These make good models for warriors with outdated weapons.  I used to be able to remember that mid game because they weren't based..

Image
Some Officers and Nobles and musicians.  I think these are mostly Empress.  Possibly some Askari minis too.  The drummer behind the IG officer is one of my better paintjobs.  Not sure why he is hiding.
