Only 4 months since last post so I should be able to produce a truck load of painted miniatures...............no such luck. I had a grand fishing trip up north with a few mates back in July and since then wargaming and painting has dropped off the agenda. I did get a bit bogged down with the WoTR figures and I think I needed a change.
In order to get back into the painting mood I decieded to have a crack at the Wargames Factory viking bondi set which I had purchased a while back.
As these were dark ages figures I used Army painter on them to quicken the process and give an overall dirty feel to the unit. Just had to manage the assembly step first.
Block paint the figures, cover with Army painter, a few highlights, a couple of LBM shield designs and hey presto a new bondi unit.
For plastics I was happy with the overall results but I still prefer metals myself. Although this dosent stop the purchase of any new plastic box sets just so I can have a gander at them.
Anyway, they did the trick as since completing them Ive finished some Aventine Roman commanders and started a few Greek peltasts. Oh yeah, Ive also managed to purchase a truck load of new unpainted figures.............you know how it goes, paint one and buy three to replace it on the pile!!!!.
