Analogue Hobbies Painting Competition Update 8

The next entries to the above competition were sent off a few days ago and have been posted on the host's blog. Its now time to show them on their home site and first up are a few stands of AB Figures 20mm WW2 British Infantry:

These figures are a part of a set of entrenched bases that have been very slowly painted over the last few years. This, however, is them now completed and overall the figures look well, especially when seen with more scenic terrain surrounding them. The AB Figures are excellent quality and clean casts which hold their detail well.

The following pictures are of the first base of javelin armed light infantry for the Mycenaean Impetus Army that is currently in work in progress.

The pictures were taken in two sets with two different lighting conditions. The first set - pictures one through four - with strong natural light from one side and the other set with more subtle artificial lighting conditions. Each has its own merit and yet neither are the conditions sought. More work on acquiring the correct lighting conditions for the next set of finished pictures.

Next up will see some more work in progress on Mycenaean archers, chariot and heavy infantry unit alongside some more dwarves for Songs of Blades and Heroes and 20mm SHQ German artillery crew.

Lastly a warm welcome to:

  • Vasiliy Levashov
  • Andrew

Hopefully both of you will find something of interest here.

Thats all for now.
