As a former Artillery Officer (Army Reserve) I happily went to town with the basing, carving out wheel hollows in the mdf base and burying the trail spades into the dirt…and then lost most of the effect by excitedly adding all the tufts and shrubbery :-) Overall though I’m pleased with the dioramic style effect and hope it helps them on the tabletop! Figs and gun by Warlord.
Looking forward to having them scalp some of Alan's pesky coureur de bois in their inaugural table top game next week! Figs by Warlord which mix well with my Northstar sculpts. I like the mix they have of traditional weapons, not just all Muskets and Tomahawks - you know, that would be a great name for a game...
And for my last entry I present my latest 1:1 scale project - "Odin", whom we got last week, aged 6 weeks. Adorable as he is, he does take away from my hobby time...but in the best way possible!
Whatever the impact on your focus on detail has on your productivity, the results are worth it! The gun is excellent, not to mention the paras and their complicated camo! And the Mohawk warriors, with the excellent face paint, really look fantastic. That is a period I would love to get into, and this submission is inspiring further interest, no doubt it will in others as well.
That will be 55 points, but I will use my outrageous minion powers to round it up to 60 for the torture to get the little things done on the gun, the fantastic face paint on the warriors, and the excellent picture of Odin! When my hound Joey curls up at my feet while I'm painting, I just find the figures turn out better...even if I have to stop painting for a while to hang out with him!
