Well Week four of the LPL is now in the bag and we have moved onto Round 5...so I'm able to share with you some pictures of my team for round 4. For this Round I chose to work on a group of the recently released landsknecht halberd men from Lead Adventure Miniatures (http://www.lead-adventure.com/). These wonderful figures are part of the growing Bruegelburg Line sculpted by the very talented Ratnik. The figures are amazingly detailed and full of character. This is both a good thing....and a challenge for a painter working on a deadline like I was. While the detail makes the figures look amazing...they did take a while to paint! This made the run up to submission time a very close run thing. But...it all worked out in the end.
Here is my Entry Picture:
I also found the time to take some "studio" shots after the contest began. Here is the group studio shot.
...And here are some shots of the individual troopers
This guy was sold as a standard bearer...I opted to give him a weapon and use him as an overzealous trooper...I have another Standard bearer to use for the unit.
I'm not sure about this guys bald head...I may need to add some stubble in the future...
There are more armored figures like this one coming in the next batch...whenever that might be :)
And this guy is my favorite of this batch...I just love his face...so he gets a couple of extra pictures...I also love that he has a gourd canteen (behind his sword hand)...I love details like that!
That's all for now...thanks for looking!
