From DaveD - Sudan - The drums are beating (730 Points) (!)

Oh yes they are a beating.. so here we have a further top up of 145 Beja tribesman. These are all Perry metals as I was kindly contacted through my blog by a fellow gamer who had a pile he would never use - and would i take them of his hands for small consideration.. you bet I did - thanks Kevin.

I added lots more flags this time for aesthetic effect.







Having done a recount of forces after the last lot - I now have 880 as I was a bit short on estimate (rather i forget i sold a 100 about 4 years ago , grrr - hey hum)

The final 120 are on order.. in the meantime I have a few other items to keep me busy until the end of next week. And i will then do a full table shot of the whole collection.

Cheers and happy painting people!

  3. Dave - you'd better slow down or your smoldering paint brushes will set off the fire alarms!

    Lovely points bomb :)

  8. You are truly mad! Holy crap that's a lot of painted lead again! I figure you don't have a problem with paint drying up in bottles with the speed you are getting these done :)

  9. That is a grand horde of savages! ;)
    I think to keep up with the top 15 here, I'll need to hang up my ruck, retire, get an extra set of robotic arms, and have coffee intravenously put in my system!
    Grand work, sir! The flags really set them off!

  11. LOL! Impressive doesn't even begin to describe this (or the rest of your work this year either for that matter). Are they really all called Abdul? One of them looks like an Abdel to me...

  12. Madness!! How am I supposed to compete against this when I'm agonising stupidly over the intricacies of Hungarian trouser braiding!? :) Well done Dave, looks like I'll be fighting for second place! Very nice they look, and great flags too.

  14. Can't fault your dedication, that's something special - well done, Dave!

    I asked Millsy if you had an opponent. He said "Yes, lack of storage space."
