Sunday Update; Koreans - first 2 units finished

I know, I know - I haven't posted anything since Thursday. I guess it's Sunday Update time then.

Koreans WIP

I've made a good start on the next lot of Koreans today - 16 bases (48 figures) of Levy troops. I should be able to get them finished in a couple of evenings. I've also made a start on the camp, but I won't be posting any pics of that until I come back from Campaign (yes, yet another secret project).

Secret Projects

I've started one of the Secret Projects today - the other one won't take a great deal of work. I'm really hoping that I will be able to get them both done in time for Salute.

Society of Ancients Battle Day - Chalons 451 (aka Battle of Campus Mauriacus)

Yesterday morning saw me get up very early to catch an early train to Bletchley. I was one of 4 members from Central London putting on FoG:AM V2 games for Battle Day.

For those that don't know, Chalons was where a confederation of Romans, Alans and Visigoths under Aetius took on and defeated Atilla after he had turned his attentions to the Western Roman Empire (having bled the Eastern Empire within raiding distance dry) and gone on a rampage across France with an army of Huns, Gepids and Ostrogoths.

We managed to get 2 games in, switching sides for the 2nd game. I was partnered with Gordon and we both had utterly atrocious dice luck in both games.

I took loads of pics of the first game, not so many of the second. I'll get them sorted and posted here soon.


Finished Koreans - Light Foot and Light Horse (and some Leitzinen for use with my Swiss)

This afternoon I got these sprayed with matt varnish and flocked them. Here's the Eye Candy:

  5. Cheers guys! :)

    @ Ian - I do know it's over. I'm not painting as much or as fast, but I do only have a short time to get my Koreans painted for Campaign.

    @ Ray - I thought the colours worked well together. I did consider doing the capes in the same colour as the trim on the jackets, but thought that would be a touch too heavy on the pink so went with sky blue.

    @ Sidney - I do sleep. I just don't have any other distractions such as family or social life which allows me to get on with painting! ;)
