Painting Challenge latest.

 A bit of a catch up. While I wait for the next step of my figures to dry I thought I should bring you up to speed with what I have done recently in the painting challenge.

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.

    1. Well there is a certain joy to free figures. I also like the civilians and can see them being as little more than just scenery! Thank you Dean.

  2. Nice ranks, and the civilians look great. Perhaps on a certain roll of activation you get to move a civlian in the way.

    1. Thank you Simon More Mardhists on the way. Just polyfillered the bases and waiting for that to dry now.... So should finish them either late tonight or tomorrow morning. Thank you Simon I agree the Citizens need some kind of activation ruling.

  4. Great additions to swell the Mahdist ranks and the patches are very muted now;
    the civilians are a great asset for any game, even if they're just scenery.

    (The Broncos played not just like girls but out of sync too as in the photo!)

      Any team can have an off day. But I just wanted a friendly dig at Mr Rousell who supports Denver.
