These little fellows were painted during the 30 days 30 miniatures challenges in 2018 and have only now been fully based.All three stands have figures from Rapier Miniatures Greek and Macedonian ranges.Three more phalanxes are needed to reach the required amount for a DBA army and each base will require a rear stand for ADLG as the bases are double depth.The cavalry will see use as medium Greek cavalry in both Greek and Macedonian armies with Companions and more medium cavalry to follow.As always the massed effect of 6mm figures is hugely appealing and perfect for basing on 40mm fronts.Next up will be some work in progress pictures then histoical and fantastical figures in varying sizes.Cheers for now.
This challenge was indeed that with mixed motiviation for the hobby in general this past 5 - 6 weeks.The final challenge came this week with being away with no internet access or 4G. The feeling of isolation lasted for about an evening then the digital detox started. Recommend it to all - disconnect for a week it is rewarding. It also meant however that this post is late, the shame!So, back to the challenge and yes it was a success with more than thirty figures being completed in time, just mind you.Two 28mm figures for SAGA or any Dark Ages skirmish game in general. A Gripping Beast Viking on the left and a Foundry Norman on the right.A Macedonian phalanx in 6mm with 27 figures on a 40 x 30mm.A mix of stands for ACW gaming with figures from Freikorps (centre) and Old Glory on the outsides. The single figures are for break through markers and the others are casualty markers.Here is the group shot of everything together; 37 figures in total including the terrain piece.6mm: 27 infantry15mm: 7 infantry28mm: 2 in
Gathering of the host of prepped figures for the forth coming Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge IX.In the centre there is a mixture of undercoated Macedonian Pike, Hypaspists and mercenary hoplites with a fair few El Cid Spanish foot. On the right there are undercoated and untouched Peltasts.There is also a full 15mm Later Crusader army for DBA to be cleaned and undercoated for this challenge.Decisions, decisions; what would you paint: Ancients or Dark Ages?Cheers for now.
Shown here are the completed stands of Greek light cavalry for ADG.Based on 40mm fronts allowing use with a variety of systems including ADG, Basic Impetus and Command and Colours.Cheers for now
