Reconquista 5

The last from the Almoravids for a while as there are no more to base. Here there are the bulk of the army, the spearmen, with three stands out of the four required.


There is a mixture of hand painted and transfer covered shields in these stands. Felt this was the best approach as didn't want a uniform look to the units other than the head dresses which will be carried over the entire army.


The last stand is still to be painted and will be slightly different in appearance than these, but more of that later.



Once the spearmen are completed it only leaves five stands of archers to paint or thirty figures to be precise. That is a lot of spindlers.



Back to work in progress pictures for a while.

Cheers for now

Thanks Iain, I didn't want s uniform looking line of spearmen that can easily created; lacks momentum and I am not convinced these troops would be too uniformed in appearance. Call it artistic licence.

Cheers Ross
