they spent quite a while on the painting bench
So, after two months of being retired I finally finished a wargames unit. At this rate I will have to be retired for about 170 years to just work through the pile of miniatures on the "urgent" desk. Not a good start at all. I do think that they turned out rather well. I painted them entirely with Americana acrylics, sprayed over with Krylon Workable Artists Matted Finish, then a light coat of Armory Matte finish spray.
I still need to work on my shields,
or just break down and buy some decals
the ability to create slightly different poses or modify the figures
is one of the best aspect of plastic miniatures
the whole unit was mustered in
and then joined Arthur and the rest of the army
The enormous amount of time these guys spent on the workbench was entirely due to my personal life intruding (once again!) on my painting schedule. They were a joy to paint, crisply cast, clearly detailed, with enough depth to the sculpting to allow the use of washes and drybrushing to make the details pop.
