WIP: Second Batch Sarmatian "Other Cavalry"

Thanks to an early wake-up call from the guys delivering my new fridge-freezer and cooker, I've had a pretty productive day on the minis front.


  • Primed 18 x 30YW musketeers
  • Primed 36 x 30YW cuirassiers
  • Painted remaining parts of the last 24 Sarmatian "other cavalry"

So, what were those remaining bits?

  • Boots
  • Trousers
  • Tunic sleeves
  • Cloaks
  • Bows and spear shafts
  • Belts
  • Quivers and bowcases
  • Fletchings
  • Scabbards
  • Sword hilts

I'll have time before bed to do the Klear/ink coat on these, and maybe to glue them onto their bases. Tomorrow morning I'll add the basing gunk and in the afternoon/early evening I'll do the drybrushing and (if the weather is OK) the matt spray varnish.

While the basing gunk is drying I'll make a start on another regiment of 30YW foot.

Anyway, that's enough rhubarb from me - here's the custard:


  1. Great looking custard Tamsin.

  2. Nice Sarmatians...but my Sassanids are growing...
    By the way you' re the winner for the Sci-Fi trooper...
