Back to the Brushes 29

Progress on the last few figures for the veteran stand of Foederatii Allies for the Late Romans move on slowly. With only three figures to complete it is taking a surprising long time to finish the figures for varnishing and basing. Here are the most recent pictures of the stand as a whole:

All being well these figures will be completed over the weekend and further updates on other work in progress.

A warm welcome to:

Hopefully, you will find something of interest in these pages.

Cheers for now

Imperium Sine Fine 9

Here are a few colour pictures of the Late Romans and their fickle allies. Figures from Foundry, Gripping Beast and Old Glory. Shield transfers are from Little Big Men and VVV.

There will be some more WIP pictures soon of Foederatii Allies and Huns.

Lastly a warm welcome to:

Hope you enjoy the ramblings here and find something of use.

Cheers for now.

Back to the Brushes 28

Well, there was a fairly productive evening last night and the last few character figures for the Foederatii stand for the Late Romans have moved on a stage or two. The figures are from Gripping Beast's 6th/7th Century Germanic's range.

To assist these guys in the defence and pillaging of an Empire the following stand of Light Cavalry has been started. Again the figures are from Gripping Beast, this time from their Nomadic Huns range. Great figures with a huge amount of character.

Not sure about the colour of the flesh on these two figures, so they may get re-done over the weekend.

Lastly, every good Mycenean Hero needs some back up. These figures will suit this purpose wonderfully and as Light Foot in Impetus can support the Chariots with their pace and reasonable Impetus. Early stages at present as this is only the base coat of the flesh.

A warm welcome to the newest followers:

Back to the Brushes 27

Well hopefully things here are returning to some normality and some hobby time can be found. The car was dying and had to be replaced and as you can imagine its never as easy as that will do nicely. This has now been rectified and all is well.

July is rapidly drawing to an end and there has been very little to report. This should change over the weekend and there will be some pictures to show. This evening will be spent moving on with the foederatii for the Late Romans and something else, but more of that later.

There has been a far bit of reading happening here over the last few weeks and this is leading to a new project, but again, more of that later.

Lastly, a warm and belated welcome to:

  • Bluewillow

Hope that you find something of use in these ramblings.

The Dance of Bronze

Well, there are things happening here, strange things. A first in fact as the Victrix Spartans are in the post. These figures hopefully will bulk out the remaining metals from Foundry and be the first venture in 28mm plastics. The picture below shows some painted examples of which most look useable, although there are some reservations on the musician and the officer type second from the top left with the half crested helm. Any way enough rambling and here is the picture:

The above picture has shamelessly be grabbed from the Victrix website and the link above shows the possibilities with these figures.

Work continues on the Germanic Foederati for the Late Romans and other projects start in the dark corners of the mind. Hopefully there will be some painted figures to show soon.

Cheers for now
