Bit of a mix but here goes.
My last pike block for this Tercio.
|Spanish Pike - 36 Figures (Essex Miniatures)|
English (Late Tudors to fight the Spanish above)
|All Cavalry (23 Mounted Figures - Essex)|
|The General and Escort|
|Border Horse (There are two units of these)|
French Wars of Religion
|45 Mounted Figures - Essex Miniatures|
|Argoulets (Light Cavalry)|
|Gendarmes (there are 4 units of theses)|
|48 Mounted Figures|
|"Millers" - 3 Units of these. Apparently called Miller because of the white coats they wore|
|A General and more Gendarmes (Not much different from the Catholic apart from the white feathers)|
Mughal Late 1500s
|Total 53 Mounted and 4 Elephants (All Essex)|
|One of the Heavy Cavalry Units and one of the General stands|
|Two of the Elephants|
|And the other two.|
An just for a change from painting cavalry some Late War German Infantry
|61 Infantry, 2 x 120mm Mortar, 2 x 81mm Mortar, 4 x MMG|
|A unit (Section, Platoon, Coy depending on what rules I am using)|
|4 MMGs with 3 crew|
|Two 81mm Mortar and 3 crew each|
|Two 120mm Mortars and 3 crew each|
And that's it (sorry but had to rush this post just to ensure it went on). I have really enjoyed doing this challenge. Can't get over how much you can paint if you have a deadline, and I still haven't hit the painting wall yet. Any chance of running it for a further three months (maybe not)?
My thanks to those who ran the challenge and had the envious task of adding up the totals. Likewise, to all those that took part and those who left comments regarding my entries.
Had a spare hour so painted this for the Mughals
|Mughal Heavy Artillery|
There's still time Grahame! More than two days painting, Curt will still accept entries!
Still, this is a massive points bomb to drop in on the final day: by my tally, 105 infantry, 178 cavalry/guns and 4 elephantine 'vehicles' across four different armies. And is that fourteen flags I count. I've got to count those. A teensy bit of a pity that there aren't more of those Russians though, particularly the seemingly endless Cossacks in your lead pile.
I've really enjoyed your entries Grahame, really impressive not only in the sheer number of miniatures painted and speed at which you work, but also maintaining a high quality and distinctive style: neat, excellent colour choices and good detailing and basing. All things I'm not very good at when I work in 15s.
960 points for one entry - not quite enough to join the 1000 points club, damn close. Your tally is now over 3300 points, more than three times your target.Huge congratulations - that's such impressive output, particularly of this quality.
