Before I even get started, I want to make a disclaimer here because sadly, it is needed.

I have seen the argument of racism crop up too easily these last years when somebody wants to do something outside of western culture. Most of the time, it comes down to people taking offence in certain models somebody made, because they feel like those models stereotypically portray or even mock certain common-held (but often wrong) ideas people have about such and such.

So let me be very clear here. I only hold the biggest respect for any culture. The whole idea of this project is to make a cool army that shows off how rich African culture is. This being said, I am not a black person myself, so I am of course not part of this cultural background. I have even thought long and hard if I should actually do this project. And then I thought: sod it. I am not a Scottish person either, but have never had any qualms about doing a Scottish army, so why should this be different?

IF you are a black person and you feel offended by anything I do, please let me know in a kind fashion. Know that there is no ill intent whatsoever from my part. I have only respect for this culture and I hope you will return this respect by assuming that if I happen to stumble over some boundaries, it was not to slight anybody in any way. I welcome the feedback and the discussion, as long as we can do it in a respectful manner.

Also: this will be a fantasy army, not a historical one. I will be mixing different cultures. I will be mixing different countries and time periods. The main idea is not to make something historically accurate, but to create something unique.

Now let’s start building.
