After the past 2 weeks of excessiveness, I was taking things a little easier this week. And so, I present my 15th entry of this Challenge - some more little blue blobs; this time with little brown blobs *lol*
The dismounted cavalry:
You see what happens when you switch to 6mm scale? Both regiments have lost over half their horses!
And their not-yet-dismounted comrades (with some close-ups! - the horror!):
As a detailed inspection will reveal, some of the figures managed to jump in the way of the dry-brush so will need attention later on.
Let's tot up the points:
63 mounted = 63 points
28 foot and 12 horses = 20 points
Total = 83 points
Like I said earlier, just as well the race with Dux is over!
Before I leave you, I have previously posted pics of my paintbench. However, here's another showing it as it is right now:
New toys! Well, the airbrush and compressor were bought around June last year, but haven't been used yet. The portable spray booth is new though. It does come with a flexible extract hose, but as I'm not using anything solvent-based, I should be OK to use it without.
I'll be having a play with these tonight to get used to the brush and try out some camo schemes. It's a cheapo single-action and 3-speed compressor, so probably only good for priming, base coats and rough details.
The small Really Useful Box to the left of the booth has my collection of Model Air paints and various bottles of Vallejo surface primer.
Wonderful work Tamsin. Again, your paintwork is distinct and clean, and so not making these nondescript blobs at all. My favourites are the dismounted cavalry vignettes with the horseholders at the rear of the base. I'm sure you've mentioned it before, but what rules system are you using with these?
I hope you start feeling better soon!
