For my 19th entry this year, I decided (after much deliberation) to paint up some Thirty Years War foot. After all, I hadn't done any 30YW stuff so far this Challenge so I needed to do some to continue this project across every Challenge to date. The army is pretty much complete for gaming, but I plan to keep adding units over time until I have enough for two full gaming armies. Or maybe more so that I can put on massive multi-player games. When I have the space.
But that's enough blathering, on with the post.
Just one regiment of 32 figures in this post, but I should have multiple entries this weekend. These were painted and based in just under two days (Sunday and Monday), with the bases dry-brushed, tufted and flocked on Tuesday (in between doing other things). It was only when I went to take pictures that I realised they hadn't been sprayed with matt varnish. Cue a little bit of swearing and a delay to do that job and let the varnish dry.
And some not-quite-overhead views showing why I do nine bases for my regiments:
|9 base later tercio|
|7 base Swedish brigade|
|6 base pike & shot regiment|
The figures are 15mm from Donnington Miniatures.
