Sofie has been doing a "Paint Table Saturday" thing over on her blog and encouraging other bloggers to do the same. So, here goes my first entry:
So, what are all these?
The back left group are some 28mm Vikings from Gripping Beast - Egil Skalagrimsson and four berserkers. Egil (and maybe the berserkers as well) will be my entry for the Hero/Heroic Group bonus theme in the Analogue Painting Challenge over on Curt's blog. Eventually they will be used for Saga.
Back right are some 15mm PyRats from Rebel Minis. Another fun unit for my FoG:R
In the foreground are some 30 Years War casualty figures from Donnington Miniatures and grave markers from Timecast - these will be my entry for the casualties bonus theme . I will be tufting and flocking the bases after doing this post, taking pics and sending the pics to Curt (4 weeks early! Woohoo!). I will be using these as cohesion markers for FoG:R - bases with 1 figure for disrupted units, bases with 2 figures for fragmented units and grave markers for broken units. With 16 disrupted, 8 fragmented and 6 broken I should just about have enough given the way things normally go for me!
Once all these are finished, I will begin work in earnest on my Pirate Buccaneer army. I'll be painting the figures in batches, then once they are all done mixing them up for basing. This means it will be a few weeks before I am ready to submit them to the Challenge, but it will be a whopping big entry when it does get submitted - lots of lovely points!
