At the Crisis last year Arthur and myself were standing at the Wargames Foundry Stand, he had brought some of his pocket money to buy some figures to paint for this Challenge. So I asked him what kind of figure he wanted to paint. So he says "Knights!" and so we walked over to the rack displaying all kinds of medieval figures. Arthur went in and looked at all the blisters very carefully and took out this one. 3 mounted Dark Age knights, the label read: "King Arthur".
Coincidence or what?
Anyway here are the painted figures.
I myself have only finished one figure this week because I am hard at work on the camel challenge side duel with Dave D.
It's a North Star Frostgrave thief which I painted as an assassin for one of the kids in the School club.
So that will make 35 points for the lad and 5 for me ;-)
Arthur, you've done excellent work on all of these figures. King Arthur's scarlet cloak and golden sword really mark him out as the monarch in this group, while his banner bearer with the red draco is very majestic as well. I also really your choice of figure for your mum, especially the red, blue and grey shield. Bravo! Great brushwork Arthur. Now you need to do something for your dad, perhaps help him out with something Napoleonic. :)
Sander, I would be the last to cast stones at anyone who submits one figure in a week - you are in very good company here. :) It may be one chap, but he's very nicely painted. His flashing, gold-hilted dagger and red mask provide wonderful juxtapositions to the grey and black of his garb. Great work.
So that makes it 37 points for Arthur (with a few extra added for the banners and hand painted shields) and 5 for dad, who plods resolutely behind. Well done lads!
