Back to the Brushes 105

Some working in progress pictures for this year's Analogue Painting Challenge

First up are the horses from the stand of prodromoi that are currently being painted for a Basic Impetus Army. The figures are from A & A Miniatures and have been good so far. A & A are not really a producer that I have dealt with a lot however, their sister company Aventine grow from strength to strength in these days of constant new releases in plastic.

Next the now two archers for a stand of skirmishers for the same Macedonian army. The third figure in full hoplite panoply just didn't sit right with these figures from Foundry's original Greeks. Slightly smaller that the World of Greeks range although still good in their own right.

Lastly, five stands of Augmented troops from Critical Mass's ARC range in 15mm. These have sat undercoated in tank grey since last year's challenge and have finally been dusted down and started as a part of this challenge. Another four stands are lurking just out picture to the left.

In the background of all of these pictures are some stands of Moors for the Impetus army that is in progress. Not a part of the challenge although they may grace these pages during the next few weeks.

More to follow soon, hopefully.

Cheers for now

Good to see you've been able to get some painting done. Hopefully you can get the odd half hour here and there to carry on.

Nice WIP shots, Ross. I have some A&A Macedonian phalangites a while back. I do like the look of their Late-Romans too.
