Painting Challenge latest.
6 more stands of Rifle armed Mardhists in 10mm by Pendraken Miniatures. Nothing special about them just regular troops to bolster my growing 10mm Colonial armies.
While I was disappointed with the patches on the Jibbehs last time having used more muted colours I feel a better result has been achieved. They are 10mm figures so as long as they look good as a mass individual models do not have to be that well finished as you are looking at the mass effect from a distance. And for that I feel they work adequately well without having to spend a long time getting them perfect. The 2 foot rule definitely applies.
I have also managed to get a few civilians done for the Arab revolt game. These are IT miniatures and 20mm. A gift from Tim the owner of IT miniatures who is a long standing and valued club member. It's nice to have a few kids on the battlefield as you can imagine them poking their heads out and getting in the way and generally making a nuisance of themselves. Which In turn will put adults in danger as they try to control or rescue them. There could be a side game/objective there, who knows.
As that stage of my painting is now dry I should return to the painting table and get the next step done. I had hoped to get this batch finished today but got side tracked yesterday.
I will just end with the following thought. Yes you know who that is for!
So take care all and I hope to see you all soon.
