From TeemuL: SCW from the Last Challenge (15 Points)
These three warriors were primed for the 7th Challenge, but they just didn't made the deadline and were untouched for the whole year. So it was about the time to give them some painting.
They are Spanish Civil War Republican Militia members from the Empress Miniatures. They all have blue overalls and mixed clothing. I kept the palette simple, just painting different areas on different miniatures with different colors. Or different areas with the same colors. Or same colors on different areas. Well, you'll get the point.
My favorite of these three is the one with bare head. Somehow he brings to my mind some young chap from the old western movies - guy with the rifle trying to proof he is a man, when his father, bigger brothers and all the girls from the village are watching.
The guy on the knee has glasses, I was quite scared how they would turn out, but they look nice. I added some Middenheim tuft on the bases to give something green to the dry Spanish ground.
In the future I'm trying to paint and post some Odds and Ends like last year, but as I am also a gamer, different needs might arise. So keep your eyes open for some Astra Militarum for Warhammer 40000 and mixed Chaos for Age of Sigmar. You'll probably get some Oldhammer as well, some Odds from here and there and most likely at least one post a week. I'm trying to participate all the Bonus Rounds as well and kick some butts on my first ever side duel!
3 25mm models and 15 points!
Welcome back to the Challenge Teemu!
This is a great looking trio of Republicans, wearing their iconic blue workers' trousers and red bandannas. I also like the sparce, arid groundwork for the bases - evocative of the Spanish countryside. Empress has done such a great job on this range and you've really done them proud here, Teemu. Well done!
