Thirty Spears - A Challenge update 4

Well all plans fall apart on contact with the enemy and this personal painting challenge was no different.

Final stages of the decant at work happened over the last two weeks of May and it was all hands - literally - on deck. Most of June has been spent tying up loose ends and sort out the issues arising with work. The end result of this has been that there has been every little time or motivation  Everything is finally now finished and a new role starts officially on Monday - unofficially the has been ongoing for most of this month.

Anyway enough rambling about real life and time to start rambling on about hobby time. Here are two quick pictures to update the challenge so far.


The first stand of Black Guard are now being based and will be finished for final display very soon. The picture below shows both stands together and the second group of figures have already been started with what little flesh present having been already blocked in. These figures are relatively easy to paint due to the very limited pallet and amount of trappings on each figure.


Will be back to more regular hobby time and blogging from here on.

Cheers for now

@ Michael - Yes the flag is a commercially bought transfer from Little Big Men.

To all, thanks for the compliments all well received!
