"I'll do it tomorrow." That's what I have been saying for three weeks as I saw these figures waiting for their bases and flock ( Lazy jester!). This week I flicked from a project to another, but at least I have finally done the last group of heavy cavalry of my "Mongol Conquest" project, the army is finished (yes I know only for now;-)).
Jacopo Rangon di Modena and Jacopo dei Pazzi, standard bearer of the Florentine flag:
Bilenchi + the flag of "di Popolo di Firenze", a St Georges cross:
The last one is for the allied city of Pistoia with the Famiglia Montemagni + Famiglia Cancelleria bearing the standard of their town:
Bien fait encore Gilles! Well done. Very nice to see the "finish" of your Mongol force. I hope they bring you victory tonight - although you know what they say about newly painted figures and their first game...
I think we can all relate to the feeling of "I'll do it tomorrow." Although in my case I am often saying that about shoveling snow or cutting the grass, so I can paint instead. But I can understand hesitation on groundwork and flocking...it's important, but not quite as much fun as painting the miniatures themselves, is it?
Great stuff all around, and nice to see more Italian Wars figures appear. No doubt Peter will have some academic points to make about all these Italian fellows. All I know is they look right to me!
So I'll throw in a couple of extra points for work on banners - another part of the hobby I struggle with, so I respect the strong work of others. Une autre 74 points pour vous, Mr. le Jester. A la semaine prochaine!
