First up, Egyptian gunners. The guns were already completed. They are a very basic figure , but seem to do the job.
Next, the men of the 5th Egyptian Regt - the officers in blue were sourced as part of some ready painted stuff I bought , and I was happy they needed no work , so just the 22 lads in white to count.
Followed by the start of the citizens, 8 in various poses, plus the goat-herd and 3 goats - who knows what rumours he may have for the Imperial relief forces eh?
So having suffered defeat at Millsy's hands in our race to 1250 points , and having to endure MCH... ones mind can only take so much... so I had to resort to :-
So here are the pictures of my paint space..
From Curt:This is a Feztacular entry Dave! The artillery and the 5th Egyptians are wonderful in their weatherbeaten linens and fez hats (what is the plural of fez? Fezzes? Fezzi?). Don't say a word, Phil, with your crazy Tarbooshes...
I like the shot of your painting area Dave. (I always zoom-in on these pictures so I can get my nose close to the screen to see how everything's set up and what project is on the table. It's sad really.) Also, I can completely appreciate your 'Overflow Corner' Dave. For our family it's simply called 'Shed A' (no, really).
And amidst the aftermath of their first 1250 pt duel, another gauntlet is thrown! I love the 'Millsgone Mind-Bleach' perhaps to be followed by the 'Mills-B-Gone Sanitary Wipes'?
So, we have a 2500 point duel folks! We will be witnesses to a Battle Royale right up to the last weeks of the Challenge. Great stuff lads! Now, do carry on...
