|The four females.|
I'm pleased with the 'conversions' making every model an individual, though the women had their right hand inevitably break off when drilling for a new weapon.
All the new weapons' shafts were filed down from very thin cane, with bits attached !

|Original figure, with apron 'removed' |
|The chaps in their current state|
Alongside painting I've also been drawing ot the first large adobe building I'm working on, an arched building with a footprint of approximately 18" x 12" in foamboard. So far I've used three sheets of A2 and will need another one at least for the base and the roof !
|Building 'plans', details can just about be made out.|
And that's all I've got this week, sadly not a lot to show for a lot of time spent. Next week, if I manage to finish the hair, hats, shading etc. on the male peasants I'll be posting photos of those.
Photography this week has been of the usual abysmal varied quality, despite my best efforts with photoshop so many apologies for that [Usual excuses apply - Ed.]
That's all for this week, thanks for taking the time to visit and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
The four women turned out Great Joe, and the conversions add a lot of variety to the model. Look forward to seeing the adobe building developReplyDelete
Thansk Dave, for skirmish games figures do need individuality imo.Delete
The building will just be a very big version of the those I built for the Sudan - so I'm not that excited.
Looking good, well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks Douglas and I only have another hundred or so figures and forty or so horses to go...Delete
All these turned out looking great! I'm also looking forward to seeing how your adobe buildings turn out.ReplyDelete
Thanks Matt, as I mentioned in my reply to Dave, it's just a larger version of the Sudan buuldingss, but the other eight I'll be making have some variation !Delete
Well done on the quartet, Joe. Looking forward to seeing both the Adobe Building and the other eight variants. They should keep you busy!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Blaxx, but don;t be fooled, I don;t find this aan enjoyable exercise, it's just a means to an end !Delete
All looking great sir!ReplyDelete
Thanks Michal, much appreciated.Delete
The ladies look like they mean trouble!ReplyDelete
Thanks ray, I think they're meant to.Delete
They all look fab. Watch out I bet they have a mean swing on em!ReplyDelete
Thanks Brummie, when they come into play, I sure hope they do !Delete
They've come out really well and the conversions are great! Looking forward to the big build,I can't seem to knuckle down and concentrate on any one thing at the moment, just bits and bobs!ReplyDelete
Thanks Iain, I can;t put my finger on why I'm so ebthused by this batch of paintjobs or the build. Ihave been stumped though, many times as to what to do next across many projects. I ended up just doing its from each of my three current 'projects'.Delete
