The group shot:
The worst part, by far, was the four oxen. I glued on their heads, then realized that the yokes did not fit over their heads, so I had to yank the heads off. Then, I had to paint the heads and bodies separately, paint the yokes, put the yokes in place, then glue the heads on. Once that was done, I had to fill in the gaps between head an body and do touch up painting -- with the bloody yokes constantly in the way, and the dumb oxen right next to each other. A serious, serious pain! It was all I could do to not throw the stupid things across the room!
You'll note there are no bases on the oxen, either. After doing all this work, I realized my little basing plan did not work with bases on the oxen, so I had to cut the bases off, then repaint and touch them up before gluing to the base I'd made. Not much fun. Meanwhile, the drover and family proved to be less troublesome, though with no bases it was annoying to paint them, too.
The wagon is designed to be laden or empty, as desired.
But, bandits attacked at a ford, leading to an ugly little skirmish for the party (there were a lot more bandits shortly after this pic was taken, though my gal taking up the rear of the convoy took the one bugger visible to the right out after a short scrap).
Hi again Keith! Another motley collection, good to keep up the Friday tradition. That pair of minotaurs are great sculpts and came out great. And that wagon, well it might have been a pain to build, but it looks the business all painted and based up, the perfect objective for your bandits to rob, or to be guarded by your City Watch from a few weeks ago.
Really nice gaming setup too, great to see that. Are those the BattleFront rivers?
Scoring-wise: 40mm infantry for the minotaurs, 28mm for the rest, with the spiders scored half points because they're a). simple b). diddy anbd c). lkook like the quivalent of a prone mini. The wagon, I'll score as a 28mm vehicle, plus the three 'crew'.
*Makes sacrifice to the Deities of Arithmetic* I make that 69 points!
