Well these have been on the Analogue Hobbies painting challenge for about 2 weeks and now I have only just gotten around to putting them on my blog. Ah well such is Life. Yes The Paint monkey was busy with the brushes over the festive period.
I hasten to add that I am painting Zulu's for myself at this stage as well as some Genestealers for a project later to be revealed. But I will say no more for now. And back to the script (This Blog has a script? well no one told me Ed.)
All these figures are Perry miniatures from their Sudan metal range. Firstly we have 2 command figures. While the one on the left has a sword the one on the right is unarmed. (except for a scroll... something about a pen being mightier than a sword..... neither will stop bullets though).
Then we have 2 groups each of 4 cavalry. They all carry swords some carry javelins or rifles as well, a couple carry all three. As we all know you can never have enough weapons. But you can have too few.
Some likewise have colourful patches on their clothes as a mark of the poverty of the Mahdi. Most do not though. They were a joy to paint and have come out jolly well I think. The next two I do I have been struggling with and when you see them you will understand why! But that's another post on this blog.
The final picture is them all together.. A total of 10 Cavalry in 28mm. And while all the riders are different I Have had a few "Siimilar" (exactly the same) horses. This is no problem as they can all be different shades of brown if need be to help break the unit up.
Thanks for looking today. Happy new year and all that. I may well do a post of plans for the new year next week, or I may avoid it all together.
I shall go back to playing "World of tanks" now at which I do truly stink big time in an ultra wiffy way.
Have fun and with luck see you soon. All the best Clint.
