Baggage

These figures (foot are Essex, not sure about the mules) were generously sent my way by the strong right arm of Simon Miller (Bigredbat), putter-on of spectacular multiplayer ancients games, all round top bloke and author of To The Strongest!





I'm not usually one to muck around too much with bases, but I thought I would try to go a bit fancier than usual for these.

To help me in future, I'm including a little reminder of what I did.

1) Paint the figures!

2) Set some puddles using larger stones and apply a mix of fish tank sand and glue.




3) Next, paint sand with a mix of watery earth brown, followed by a drybrush.



4) Apply glue. Pour flock on...


5) Shake flock off.


6) Add a couple of foliage clumps and dribble Klear over the water holes.


This was a lot of fun to do. Thanks again, Simon!

    1. Thanks Phil. I probably should have done the muddy bit under the hooves, but it's a bit late now! :)

  2. Nice work on the basing, Aaron. Baggage trains and other such "non-combatants" definitely liven up the gaming table and scenario.
