Wednesday Workbench 08 April
Well, that's quite a lot of figures currently on the workbench. The men at arms have all been based now, with just flocking and tufting left to do:
While various stages of the basing were curing or drying, I painted up these twelve figures:
I can't for the life of me work out what unit types these were meant to be for, so they might get popped to one side until I figure out where to use them (I suspect they may have been intended to be added to bases of billmen, archers or spearmen), once they are varnished.
Yesterday I started on the longbowmen, with the first 24 figures now almost finished:
The eagle-eyed among you may be wondering why one of them has a green blob on his helmet. Yes, well, indeed. Accidents do happen, dontchaknow?
When I have finished painting these chaps, I have another 48 archers to paint. 24 seems to be a reasonable batch size for them, so that will be two more batches. I can then varnish all the archers (and those twelve odd figures) and get them based up before moving onto the next set of figures, either the billmen or the spearmen.
