Next are some random individual 28mm Napoleonics. I do not always get to paint large groups at once. Sometimes I make small pieces, and then compose them into a whole. The following photo - just show these little pieces.
Three foot dragoons:
Three bases of grenadiers:
Three bases voltigeurs:
Unfortunately, they have not yet become part of the whole, but more on that below.
And last, some ancients. Since my childhood love affair Sprague de Camp "Arrow of Apollo" and I have always admired the history of Sicily - especially in the ancient period. So I decided to put together a small army of Syracuse.
The main troop was the phalanx consisting of 50 hoplites:
A must in this army was ballista. This is Syracuse, is not it?
And no less important for this army of mercenaries. I chose the barbarian cavalry for this purpose.
This is the last "Painting bomb" from me. Two weeks ago, my second daughter was born, and now the time that I was assigning to paint will be taken by my children. I tried to paint instead of sleeping, but it turned out to be a bad idea. So I had to put aside the big projects, but I'm still going to paint and share with you our work and history.
Wow Alex, this is quite an astounding painting "bomb" indeed, with a wide variety of figures from two excellent periods/eras. The volume, together with the quality, are indeed incredible - no doubt you have been painting instead of sleeping! I think we have all tried that...in fact, that is my plan for tonight, in the hopes of cramming more in for tomorrow...
On behalf of Curt and all of the Challengers, congratulations on the arrival of a second daughter! I'm further amazed that you are getting any painting done at all as you must be busy with a young family! We can certainly understand more time being focused now on the kids, although I suspect sleep will remain in short supply for you :)
This "last" painting bomb nets you a whopping 533 points - a nearly Tamsin-esque level of points...congratulations!
