Back to the Brushes 8

Another brief session at the paints this morning and Hector's Chariot is starting to come together. The horses have been painted after December 20th, but everything else was started prior to this date, therefore will not be eligible for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Competition. Here are a few work in progress pictures showing a possible layout for basing the models.






As you can see there is still a bit of work to be done before the final basing can be started. The base used is a standard Impetus base for cavalry at 120 x 80mm. This size does not allow for a straight basing with the chariot coming straight at you, however, the angled approach suits. It also follows some theories that these chariots slowed down prior to contact allowing for the aimed spear thrust of the hero and then the chariot runners then engaging the foe along side their hero. At this stage everything is coming together well and hopefully the final base will live up to expectations.

Back to the light infantry and archers this evening if time allows.

Lastly a warm welcome to:

As always hoping that you find something of interest here.

Cheers for now.

Great looking figures - Redoubt Trojan War figures are the best around. Dean

All looking good. And one thought might be to go with a deeper base to give a bit more space round the chariot. Although the official suggestion is 80mm, I put my Selucid scythed chariot on a 120mm square base.
