The Housemartin's Arabs

   I started this project a long while back and was determined to complete it before moving on to other subjects. It took a fair bit of time but I have completed the Cavalry and the Arab Commander and his cohorts. Nothing great but they are off the workbench finally (all that remains are a couple of dozen Jannisaries).

the whole lot so far

red spearmen, 
The Housemartin wanted some troops that looked "almost regular"

the Boss and his cadre

Wallachian hillmen

the light horse archers to the fore

and, in the back, the lancers


  1. They're great. Really vibrant colors. And with craft paints? Very nice job.

  2. I have been using craft paints for years, the only specialist stuff I use is some flesh and metallic.

  3. Anton,

    I have a gift for you ... it will also spark your imagination, coincide with your interests and suggest a marvelously monstrous project you could undertake.

    Just thought I would alert you.

  4. BTW All the figures are marvelous. My favorites, besides the leader of great importance of course, are the exotically clad swordsmen. They remind me of that line from 300 about "amateurs 'gleefully' making a mess".

  5. B e a u t i f u l l!!!
