AHPC X Day 54 - Wednesday Workbench 12 February

In my post yesterday I said that my next project was a biggie - 51 fantasy barbarians! I've finished the flesh on the two female figures and have got most of the way with the 49 chaps - just a wash and final highlight to go. I've possibly gone a little bit OTT on the flesh tones, but with so much on display I think it's justified. The rest of the painting will be much easier - base, wash, highlight. I should have them finished this weekend.


  1. That's a lot of barbarians Tamsin


  2. You hinted that the next submission was going to be a big one and you weren't kidding! Wow!

  3. Looking great so far! Where are they from?

  4. Jeepers, you are a painting machine. They look good.

  5. @ Ian - there are 22 mounted chaps to do as well! :)

    @ Michael A - I wasn't! :)

    @ Lasgunpacker - cheers! They're from Battlezone Miniatures - I believe (but could well be wrong) they are the old Grenadier range from the 80s, sculpted by Mark Copplestone :)

    @ Peter Brian - Not a machine, just a human with plenty of time for painting :)

  6. Great work Tamsin on a large number of models, and as you say with that much skin on show the extra work really pays off
