Challenge Day 13 - Rebs Day 2

"Shouldn't that be "Rebs Day 3"?"

Well, it should, but I ended up taking the day off from painting yesterday. I simply wasn't in the mood to paint the wood and metal on 550 tiny muskets and the wood of 22 flagstaffs.

My fourth entry has been posted by Curt. You can see it here, but here are some pics which I didn't include in that post:





The figures are 28mm from Studio Miniatures, although I got them from Hasslefree when they still supplied them.

Today I have done the Rebs' muskets and flagstaffs. It took about 4 hours (including some short breaks for coffee, smokes, etc). If I can face it, I might do the faces and hands later on. Here's how they look right now:



To help alleviate the tedium of painting the same tiny detail several hundred times, I've been watching/listening to videos on the scholagladiatoria YouTube channel. If you haven't come across the channel before, it has some quite interesting vids about weapons, armour and how they were (probably) used in days of yore.

I've also done a little bit more work on my super-high-top-secret Nostalgia theme entry. I'll do a little bit more this evening, then will put the finishing touches to it tomorrow.


Oh, and Happy New Year to you all!
