Bits and bobs (aka getting some stuff off the painting tray)

Taken a slight pause from all sorts of stuff to finish a couple of bits off for up and coming games. In no particular order....
Another war elephant, a Macedonian type driver Howdah is empty so I can put different troops in when needed
Some ancient artillery.........technically Roman but I have swopped the crew about to make them a bit more generic
A somewhat Eastern looking command unit.......for Blood in the Sand Battles so again I don't have to be too pedantic about their true origin
A Greek/Roman who will play an important part in an up and coming game
Only the the Lady in the pink is new but this IHMN company saw battle last weekend I am just sorting out the report
They were up against my newly developing Belgium Company who have annoyingly landed on the island of Zanzibar !
Finally a couple more figures which didn't quite make the faction....but you can never have too many (painted) figures in my opinion πŸ˜€

Refreshed I am going to do some more ACW figures now.

  1. An occasional clearing of the deck to finish off bits and bobs piling up on the painting desk is a lost art. Now, you can have a fresh start with more ACW!

  4. Cool stuff, the elephant and bolt throwers look ominous and the diplomat is very intriguing.

  5. Always good to get some stuff finished. I think an IHMN report is very due (probably from both of us!)

  8. Love posts like these. Nicely painted figures and good to see other people struggling to stick to one project too.
