From GuyB - Getting Started (33 Points)

With deadlines looming both in the analogue Painting Challenge and real life with the magazine, I thought I'd better post something to stay in the race!

Here's the start of my Beyond the Gates of Antares Algoryn force. Three test pieces at 12.5 points total (drones must count as half or less, right?).


However, my main project is painting a Republican Roman army for 217BC, our new project this year. I have a whole production line going, but here's my first finished base of Republican Romans. 20 points. More to come.


That's it for now!
Cheers,
Guy

ByronM: Excellent work Guy!  You actually make those Gates of Antares figures look good! I generally find them a little 2 dimensional, but those look quite nice all painted up.  Better yet are your Romans!  Wow, super clean lines and smooth shading.  I hope to see more like those in the future!  

I am going with your points as listed, so a 32.5 (33 Ed.) point start, and more importantly, you avoid this weekends cull.  Which given your talent is a great thing as I can't wait to see more.

  3. Welcome Guy - those look fantastic. This is the first time I have seen "Gates of Anteres" figures which have piqued my interest...they look really sharp.

  5. Very nice indeed. I'm certainly tempted by the GoA rules as I have a few figures that would fit the bill....

  11. Excellent opening volley, Guy - welcome to the Painting Challenge! I've never been too taken with the Antares designs but these are probably one of the best renditions I've seen. Nonetheless, those Republican Romans are truly lovely - I really like the warmth of the bronze and the raw linen. Very nice.
