First of all I finished off the last of the infantry units for my Bretonnian warband....these are the halberdiers I was working on for the Monthly Unit Painting Challenge over on the Oldhammer Forum. They still need a banner and few shields but they are done enough for now. This unit didn't inspire me the way the others did but I'm glad they are finished and I'm fairly happy with the way they turned out.....take a look for yourself. Sorry about the crappy wooden movement tray...its a WIP
|This shot shows the 3 R&F sculpts...nice but a little more variety would have been great!|
|Shields detail...these guys look better from the back!|
With the completion of these guys I'm getting fairly close to being finished with this small army. On my painting table right now are a unit of 10 knights as well as a general and army standard bearer. The only other thing I have to add are more mounted yeomen....I'm still hunting a couple of the sculpts down but that unit can grow slowly.
On a completely different note....last weekend my painting mojo completely vanished so I found some time to clean a prep models for future efforts. Recently my boy Clam sent along a set of his new Ewal Dvergar sculpts for me to play around with. So I spread them out with a batch of the first release castings that were still patiently waiting assembly and I went to work....here is what I started with.
As you can see there are a LOT of options here....so I spent the better part of night just fiddling around and trying different head and weapons options on the various bodies. By the end of the evening here is what I had come up with....a group of 4 with pole arms...
|I particularly like the guy second from the left...|
|here I used weapons from both 1st and 2nd releases|
|A right evil looking bunch eh?|
|Bonus points if you can ID the base bodies on the two models on the right...|
Of course if you want some of these babies for yourself you should check out Clam's Blog HERE
...tell him Blue sent ya...
Cheers for now!
