10mm Sudan Camel riders

 These 10mm Pendraken Camel Riders were submitted as part of the painting challenge and as such if you are following the challenge you will have already seen them. They have the same base frontage as they Fuzzy Wuzzy's I showed  2 days ago. One figure is on a round base. This one will act as a scout in "Patrols In the Sudan" and thus will be sent to discover any hidden forces in different terrain.  It allowed me to use all 15 figures in a pack with none spare.

The flag was the result of a quick Google search and then reduced in size and printed off. I think it adds to the troop quite dramatically.

I will be doing a load more 10mm Colonial troops over the coming months as I have really gotten into this project. That said I have submitted some 28mm figures for the latest painting round so I will be showing those next time. Elsewhere on the painting table I have the next batch of 20mm Arab revolt figures some 10mm Mounted Samurai and 7 more 28mm figures, some of which might be for one of the other bonus rounds.

The next bonus round is "vehicles" and I have some US 1/2 Tracks in 15mm prepped for this round and wanted for my PBI Games.

That's it for today, Thanks for popping by. Hope you found something of interest and with luck I should see you in a couple of day. Take care, have fun and look after those close to you.

All the best Clint

  1. Those are really great, Clint. I really like the Pendraken 10mm ranges, but when I try and paint it carefully, I don't manage anything like you've achieved here! It's fiddly as anything to paint, so you've pulled off a great paint job here!

    1. I find you can get away with murder on them f you are neat with the base colours and apply a strong was over the top of everything.

      Thank you Sidney really appreciate the comment.

  4. Ah, I so wish that 10mm had been around when I started my 6mm and 15mm collections. This work just reinforces my feeling that it's a perfect compromise between mass effect and detail.

    1. For many things I think 10mm is the right scale. For other things it simply is not. If only there were more variety or at least consistency between manufacturers.

      Thank you C6. I appreciate the comment.

    1. As mentioned above I hope the Ansar come out as well. Thank you Michael. I must admit they have given me the colonial bug again.

    1. Hey John hope you had a good Holiday period. I have some 20mm Camels on the paintable as I type. (Arab Revolt period though). I should have them ready soon.

  7. It's hard to believe that they're 10mm with all the detail you've managed to get on them. The challenge has seemingly been a great boost to your production.

    1. Yes the challenge has been a great motivator. It has been really good for me painting every day in order to have something new for the challenge in order to keep up to date on my blog...... I would recommend the challenge to anyone next time out who wants to paint more figures and reduce their personal lead mountain.

      Thank you Joe

    1. I have got to be honest and say I am quite pleased with the result. |Now I am looking forward to doing the Ansar. Will start them by the end of the week I think.

      Thank you Loki.

  9. Ok I'm impressed. I never managed to paint camels correctly, and you did it well.
    How did you paint them?

    1. They were easy to paint actually, I think I just got lucky. White primer and then a heavy was of a sandy yellow colour. Then when all the rest of the figure is painted a dark brown wash over everything (camel and rider combined). As I said I think I just got lucky.

      Thank you Sebastien
