Back to the Brushes 128

A bit of a mixed bag here with a variety of work in progress pictures to show.

6mm figures from Rapier Miniatures for the extremely slow moving Greeks and Macedonians for ADG or whatever else takes the mood.

A return to Project S and the Sassanids in 28mm. Figures from Gripping Beast and some progress being made on a unit of archers for Basic Impetus or Impetus.

Next, two stands of javelin armed troops for a generic 15mm Arab style army for Basic Impetus. Have enough figures to create the core units for most Arab/Moor armies of the late Dark Ages and Crusades as long as you don't demand historical purity with the figures.

These figures have been passed on here so thought it only right to take them to the brush and colour them in. As with all 15mm figures the method of painting here is block and wash. Think the javelin armed troops are old Minifigs and know the archers below are Essex

A couple of stands of Confederates that needed dusting and then saw a little paint. The picture shows that they need a little more here and there too.

Lastly more Sassanids, Arab archers and 6mm pikes.

Hope that this is of interest to you all.

Cheers for now

Very nice.

What base size will the Arab/moors be for impetus, only ask as it may push me on with my long forgotten 15mm light horse army.

Hi Russ,

80mm fronts. 20mm deep for skirmishers; 30mm for foot protected; 40mm for missile and light foot and 60mm for cavalry.

Hoping to have an army of sorts by summers end.

Cheers, Ross
