I finished painting the Chinese porters and barrow-men last night And started thinking about base composition for the baggage elements. For ADLG you need a 40x80mm base but for FoGR you need one that is 80x120mm. Simple solution - make up 3 elements of 40x80mm. Problem - not enough figures for three bases. Solution - figures on two bases and leave the third one blank.
It was still missing something, but I had a thought - I had a spare horse archer figure from ages back who I could add as a guard. I dug the figure out, glued the rider to the horse and the horse to a painting stick then primed it last night. I managed to get him finished by late afternoon then glued all the figures onto the two bases. Once the superglue had cured I made a start on doing the basing. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually managed to take them all the way through to flocking this evening.
Time now for pics:
The porters and barrow-men are from Essex, the horse archer is Old Glory 15s.
Tomorrow I'll be making a start on another spear & bow unit. These chaps will be "poor" as I need at least one of those for FoGR.
