Yes I know. But here they are anyway. 7 more Afghan/Indian hill tribesman for Matt. A mix of makes Including Wargames foundry and Ironclad Miniatures.. They are all mixed together so I cannot or will not try to explain which is which.
But here are my best guesses.
I think these 3 are Ironclad, not 100% sure but I believe them to be. At the recent Broadside show Matt purchased some and I think they are now reaching my paint table. If as I think they are Ironclad there is more coming.
I have painted them all in a mix of bright colours and dull colours to help with the rag tag look as I want them to look as much like an irregular force as possible. You will note that I do repeat colours, this is because it both saves me cleaning the brush when putting the base colour or and also knowing that there will be loads of tribesmen and that these will be scattered among them means that the similar colours should not be easily recognised. yes a person could easily sit down and point them out but when you look at them as a mass the eye is less picky.
The next 4 Again I think are foundry but again not 100% sure. But I will say so for now. Again the colours are all mixed and all repeated. (There will be another 13 to come in this batch and as such the colours shall be more widely scattered so I am not concerned at present). As mentioned the next 7 are already started and I will work on them each day until completion. I have tried to stick to the more brighter colours for those I perceived as being more wealthy. This is only conjecture on my part and I may well have it very different from real life or even what the sculptor wanted. No Matter I have shown matt the "rushes" and so far he is happy with them.
Changing the subject: Yesterday I was told that I WON a prize on Vampifan's blog. ( LINK ). I would like to say thank you to the man and while I would like to say what I am getting it changes every time I look at the internet. I have loads of "interesting" ideas from WW2 to Horror to sci fi to Cheap women and Cigarettes. I am also thinking of several scales and at the same time just buying paint. I could for example buy a starter force for Bushido. Or an army in 6mm for the western desert. Or even some Judge Dredd or 15mm WW2 (I was looking at the LVT2 "Buffalo" for my pacific forces. ) As yet I am undecided but want to publicly acknowledge my thanks to Bryan for the generous prize. When I make a decision I will let you all know!
Have a good weekend
all the best Clint
