From AledC: Inshallah - Crusader Muslims for Deus Vult (60 Points)

Hey everyone, here goes my first steps into the Challenge. Thanks everyone for having me!


My main aim for the challenge is to get my Crusades period Muslim army up and going for Deus Vult. So, for my first submission, I present 12 Spearmen (Gripping Beast Plastics). I'll have 96 (hopefully) by the end, as well as 24 Archers and somewhere between 24 and 48 Cavalry or various sorts. I like the way this first batch turned out, I was getting nervous just before we started because I hadn't done any test models.



On top of that, there is a nice selection of casualty figures that I have to paint up and some Commanders. That has me set for my goal points (and some) but, I also plan on painting up the beginnings of a Men of Minas Tirith force for Dragon Rampant and a few other bits and bobs I have about the place.



Or at least, that's what I hope I can get around to painting. First 60 points down, more to go!
Once again Thanks for having me I hope I can post regularly.

Another newcomer, excellent! Welcome to the Painting Challenge Aled!

These spearmen look very nice. I like the counterpoint of the coloured headgear and shields against the drab clothing. I also admire your grouped basing - it gives a nice diorama feel to the unit.

I look forward to seeing more of this army emerge from your paint desk Aled!

  18. Nice beginning, Aled! Kudos on the sheild work too, something that is always very mixed in results for me, both transfers and freehand! ;)
