On The Workbench: Swiss Pikemen
So here they are, prepped and primed. The two boards at the back have the 256 pikemen; the front board has the figures for the command stands and some medieval civilians for a supply camp/diorama.
As the gesso needs at least 24 hours to cure, I won't be able to start painting the pikemen until Monday. I the meantime I've decided to do the following to keep me occupied:
1) Prep and prime the figures Donogh sent me for to paint up as his prize from my Blog birthday draw. These will be very different to what you are used to seeing me paint - a bunch of 10 modern/post-apocalypse figures including some darned meddling, pesky kids (and their dog). The sculpts look great and I think I'm going to have fun painting them once the 256 pikemen are done and dusted.
2) Paint up the Swiss artillery.
