It turns out that rumours of Miles' demise are overstated. He has not been consumed for the benefit of others and is posted with the vigor of a man snowed in all weekend.
The first of several posts I will be submitting today is a group of 9 Colonial dock workers in 28mm scale. The figures are from the Perry AWI line and are great sculpts. There was a lot of filing required from the casting process so prep time was a bit longish but I like the figures.
These will be used as either "scenery" for period games or may even be objectives (save the civilians etc.)
A nice start to my painting output from a snow bound weekend (30 inches so far!)
Lets see, 9 figures equals 45 points.
Well done Miles, a good start for a busy day of posting. I really like these Perry sculpts and you've done a fine job with them. It is also nice to see your figures in their natural habitat and not on a bare wood workbench top. If I can make a suggestion for the future, I recommend some heavier shading for the faces and hands. I don't like painting eyes and the like as I end up with an army of Pandas, racoons and Goth rockers. But a wash of a dark earth tone can really bring out the details (I use raw or burnt umber).
