I think these chaps will earn me 80 points towards my terrifyingly aspirational target.
Beautiful word Alan! God bless your denuded broom as your spears look great (it must be a shop broom with very rigid tines). I know what you mean about the early Gripping Beast sculpts: some they hit out of the park while others... not so much, but they all seem to recover well once paint has been applied. The piece de resistance are your shields which are absolutely brilliant. I honestly thought they were transfers at first glance. Bravo!
These harse lads will give Alan a base of 80 points but I'm adding a point each for the wonderful hand-painted shields. Great work Dux!
