Continuing on with my 28mm Almoravid Impetus army with some light cavalry additions. They consist of two Berber units with javelins and one unit of Guzz with composite bows. Normally my Almoravids are a mix of manufactures, but these units are all Artizan which imho are some of the best in terms of Moor figures around.
I stayed with the low key earthy theme colours with just a bit of green as with the rest of the army. The shields are hand painted as I wanted to keep a certain look as with previous units I've done.
More Almoravids on the way next week hopefully if things stay on course and maybe something else if I can manage.
So 9 mounted 28mm figures should give me 90pts to my existing points which should put me ahead of my rival Nick.....until Saturday at least.
After a careful review of this submission, I can say, with confidence, "holy sh*t"! Christopher, that is some top notch brushwork. The colours are so smooth, muted and sombre on the one hand, but also clear and bright. Tremendous, tremendous work. Such beautiful cavalry, with splendid groundwork. And the detail work on the shields is fantastic too. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these figures - wow!
So yes, this does get you 90 points to start, but I'm tossing in 10 points for the hand painted effort on the shields. I know the result is supposedly "low-key", but as I said, you somehow manage to keep the details subtle and have them jump out at the same time. Well done!
