Dance of Bronze 2

After waiting to be based for what seems like a very long time the unit of Mycenaean Swordsmen is now fully completed. Sadly, these figures can not be added to the competition at Analogue Hobbies but there will be more in future entries.

The miniatures are from Redoubt Miniatures range of Mycenaean figures are and great to paint; a great many of the figures have a lot of character for rank and file types. Yet again the shields are all fully hand painted and are the focal point of the unit.

Next from this army will include a unit of spearmen and a chariot or two, looking forward to both.

Other work in progress just now includes more Vikings for SAGA, some from before the start of the competition and a points worth of warriors that have only just been started. German crewmen from SHQ and respective artillery and anti-tank guns and just a few Ninja. Pictures of all to follow shortly.

The first entries to the Analogue Hobbies painting competition have been posted and will be following shortly too.

Cheers for now.

Even the back of your shields are fantastic! A beautiful unit.

Lovely work. The "feathered" effect between black and white on the shields is really good - might have to nick that idea if I ever paint hide shields.

Nice work on the "hair" on the shields. One of my all time favorite periods and model range. Best, Dean

Cheers for the compliments. The shields are done by a loose form of cross hatching without the crossing. If that makes any sense
