Dance of Bronze 5

Here are a few pictures of the last base of Mycenaean Spearmen that where completed during the 3rd Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. During basing several spears were knocked off and because of this some of the minor details that have been omitted during the late night session to complete these figures will remain a plain black. Don't really want to reapply the spears for a third time prior to using the figures; ah well, such is life. Anyway enough rambling here are the pictures:

Being critical of your own work can be a good thing at times and looking at this stand with fresher eyes the choice of colour for the shields here is wrong. The grey is too cold in relation to the flesh and clothing and there should have been some variety in the colours of the shields.

One or two shields in this colour would not have been as noticeable, however, as they are all the same colour the clash between warm and cold colours is more noticeable. You live and learn as they say.

Overall though still happy with the finished unit.

Cheers for now

Looking at something for too long can be a bad thing sometimes. I actually quite like the shields, they're unusual and a nice contrast to the warmer tones.....good job.

Your right I am being overly critical of this stand; most likey because the final basing has been done several weeks after the figures have been painted. Thanks for the feedback.

Cheers, Ross
