In between painting entries for this year's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge there has been a large rebasing project underway.Here is the first unit in the early stages of rebasing including six newly painted troops to fill out the ranks.The figures are all from Gripping Beast with Little Big Men to complete the look.When finished these will be shown in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.Cheers for now.
Painted in 2018 and finally based and ready for action in 2019 these casualty stands and command stand are from Friekorps and Old Glory's Blue Moon range.Needing to go back to using the main camera rather than the phone cam, however its a time thing and everything can be done on the device. Time can be daunting just now.Some what more daunting is the twenty odd stands of foot at the back of the painting desk. Will get there soon.Cheers for now.
Haven't been updating on work in progress of late and really should be doing so more often.This year has seen a major rebasing project start with all the Late Romans and allies being rebased for ADLG. As expected this has created a few gaps here and there which has resulted in the following. Heavy infantry from Gripping Beast that are so very nearly complete. A bit of work on the trousers and the spears and its off to the basing queque. These six troopers will complete two stands of heavy swordsmen protected that are core units for the Late Romans.Next up is a Hun horse archer fromGripping Beast. This figure will complete a stand of light cavalry bow giving five of these once the rebasing is done. Whilst fragile units these are key to the Hun army and will stand as allies in the Late Romans and Goths.Next, a mounted horn blower from Foundry which ironically have tried to sell on several occassions and failed to do so. This figure will join one of the command stands currently being worked on.Three mo
Some armies are never truly finished and when the decision is made to rebase an "finished" army gaps start to appear. These figures have been painted for a while now, however look a bit lost on the command stands on there own.Currently just been started is a mounted horn blower, not strictly a cornicen as the horn is not a cornu.When completed this will fill a gap on one of the stands however foot standards and musicians would set the stands of perfectly. If anyone has anf figures from Foundry's LR005 spare please leave a comment.More to follow soon on this never ending project as there are five mounted archers and eight cataprachts needing painted along with a host of other things for other projects ongoing and stalled alike.Cheers for now
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.
