MartinC: Things I've been avoiding and Things I forgot I had (145 points)

As we approach the end of the challenge I'm at the top of the points board, although Miles and Eric are breathing down my neck and if either drops a bomb then it's going to be very very close. Dave's rebuilding his man cave and is temporarily hors de combat.
My painting this year started very well but dipped in the middle as I searched for inspiration. With that in mind my next unit has been in the pile for a while but I needed to do them justice

10th Bengal lancers - Perry. OK sculpts. The chests are messy


Bengal Lancers Officer - I've painted him as a Natal Mtd Carabinier as uniform is the same and I needed one



Pack Camel. This was out of a scrap bag from DaveD and I added some large bottles and barrels

2 Greek light Cav - Northstar lucky bag

My next submission was supposed to be for the last bonus round but I forgot I had them

The Angel gang - bought during the Warlord end of range sale. Love the Angel  Gang, mainly cos I also have a Surly setting

Points wise that is 11 cav, 1 animal and 5 infantry = 140 points. This meagre total should make the last week tight

MilesR: Another varied submission from Martin and one with with he pads his considerable lead for first place this year.  I am afraid I need to override your point total - all that baggage on the cable makes it worth 10 not 5 points, so that brings this submission to a tidy 145 points. - Well Done!

  2. Oh man - I really like those Bengal Lancers. They are on my list of "units I really want to paint one day" (which is a strong contributor to the "huge pile of stuff I purchased for some reason", but anyway). Whatever issues the sculpts gave you, they sure turned out great. Well done.

    1. They are great poses and generally good casts, just a mould release issue. Cheers

  14. Nice mixture, Martin! I truly like them all, but the Bengal Lancers are my favorite of the lot. Probably my favorite cav regiment of all time as well. You painted them up excellently too!
