From JonathanO - A few more Assyrians. (45 points)

A small and rather late submission as the Painting Challenge draws to a close.   I have failed badly to meet my modest 500 point target.  Sorry Curt!  Also sorry to Tamsin for not helping the Tuesday team more.  I have been working away from home and my hobby time has been limited the last 2 months.  I did manage to play a couple of games in our great Frostgrave campaign, but most of my hobby time was spent trying to get the Edmonton MayDay Convention organised.  www.maydayconvention.com

Here are 9 more Lamming Miniatures Assyrian archers for 45 points.







I failed to complete all the infantry for this army and have not got very far with the chariots and cavalry.  I never started my War and Empire 15mm army either! I will work on them all this spring and summer.  My Curtgeld figure is also in progress and will follow soon.

I have enjoyed the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge very much and have been very impressed with the painting skills and output of my fellow participants.

Thanks,
Jonathan

No worries Jonathan! I'm just happy that you managed to get some more of your lovely miniatures into the Challenge before the curtain fell. These are very, very nice. The bright palette you've gone with fits their old school design and the chunky bases have a great esthetic all their own.
I hope that next year allows you better hobby time so we can more enjoy your work. Have a great time at your MayDay Convention!

  1. Nice work Joanathan! :)

    No need to apologise for prioritising real life over the Challenge. The rest of the Tuesday crew kept me plenty busy :)

  4. Great job - real life is more important than minis so you've prioritized appropriately. Enjoy the MayDay even

  5. Great work, Jonathan. They look splendid! As for the chariots - nahhh, they'll just shed a wheel in the desert. Stick to the archers ;)

    1. Thanks Sidney. You are right, chariots seem to threaten more than they deliver on the wargames table.

    Nice Biblicals to end on. It will in the coming months help me to finish mine.

    1. When you get your army painted, bring it over for a game - it is only a 9 hour flight! Thanks Clint!

  9. Curt, thanks very much. I am glad I at least got a good start on this army. The AHPC has encouraged me to get them all done and I will probably even start a blog to chart further progress.
