The second 30 days 30 miniatures painting challenge is now complete and the total has been achieved.Below are two 15mm Bedouin light cavalry for the Ayyubid army that is in progress and these two take the total cavalry figures painted to thirty.Not sure of the manufacturer of these guys so any pointers would be appreciated.Will do a round up post over the next couple of days.Day 30 Figures completed 30Cheers for now.
The penultimate day of this 30 days 30 miniatures painting challenge sees three more Mamluks ready for basing.The figures are from Black Hat Miniatures formerly Gladiator Miniatures range of Mamluks. Easy figures to paint with enough detail to cause interest yet not too much to over load the miniature at this scale.Day 29Figures completed 28There will be a final completed stand of cavalry for tomorrow's deadline and a picture of everything completed in this challenge. Cheers for now
The 30 days 30 miniatures painting challenge is drawing near the end for this month and have just managed to complete another base of Greek cavalry in 6mm.The figures are from Rapier Miniatures and paint up well from a white undercoat.With only three days left in the challenge this is a cheeky little boost to the tally.Day 27Figures completed 25Still time to finish another few figures before Friday midnight. Cheers for now
Seem to have lost a few days this week and now at day 17. Shown below is a stand of Bedouin cavalry for the Ayyubid ADG army currently being worked on.Not sure which manufacturer these are from however they are smaller than the Black Hat Miniatures being painted as the Ghulam cavalry.Here is the painting table after the halfway point. Strangly its more cluttered than on day one.Day 17Figures completed 15Cheers for now.
Day 12 and the first of the Ayyubids are completed and waiting for basing.Hope to have more from this period finished shortly.Day 12Figures completed 13Cheers for now
The last few days have been full on with real life commitments; travel to and from a family funeral, work and family. As a result of this by day 11 there is only work in progress to report.The figures are Ghulams from Black Hat Miniatures and are painting up well with not too much detail and yet enough to convey what is necessary.Hoping to complete all nine shown including riders for the half way point.There has also been some more time spent on the Christian Spanish although these are not shown here.Cheers for now.
