From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Completing this box almost doubled my count of painted miniatures for the year, but who’s judging? I finished these off with a basic sandy base, and some Little Big Men transfers on the shields. These were for a different line of miniatures, but I took a chance and these fit the shields. Let the undead Carthaginians walk!
Overall this was a straightforward paint job, and I look forward to using them on my new tablescapes layout.
The models were unusual in their assembly. The feet, minus the heels are part of the crosspiece. To attach the body to the feet you simply ‘click’ the heels into place. The first couple were awkward simply because I had never assembled a model this way before. After the first few it became quite quick and simply to do, I used a pinch of glue as well to make sure it holds, and effectively assembled these from the ground up!
These models have a great ‘Harryhausen’ vibe which I love. I was obliged to lighten my brushstrokes while painting. The models aren’t brittle but they will bend under a stiff brush stroke. I didn’t experience any breakages while assembling or painting.
