All flocked

Have finally managed to get all the 15mm figures painted during the big push last year flocked and ready to go.



It's a bit of an eclectic mix, but especially pleasing were figures that came from fellow bloggers. One set, from Aaron Hunt, was kindly sent to add to my Dux Bellorum project. They are a mix of Old Glory Saxons and Germans, and they were very nice to paint, even though they were done quickly. For my purposes they will be mercenaries or local roustabouts. Many thanks, Aaron!



The other set of models comes from Jonathan Freitag. These four Carthaginian chariots will add weight and heft to my existing (but previously puny) chariot arm and turn them into a force to be reckoned with. Many thanks! Sorry that the photography is a bit off, and the painting is not quite up to Jonathan's own high standards.



The other big talking point is the infantry for my long suffering nascent Achaemenid Persian force. Mystified readers may wonder why they are flocked in green: the answer is that in my wargaming world, everyone is flocked in green.




So there we are. Nice to have them done, and very pleasing to now have more contingents from greatly esteemed bloggers to point out to anyone who happens to show any interest in my poor collection!

  3. After all that work it is always nice to get a completed collection of figures all lined up for a view. And a nice looking collection of figures it is too.

  4. Nice one Aaron! I'm with you on basing consistency, all my ancients will be given sand and some grass regardless of where they my be from or fought historically.

  5. Nicely done Aaron. Of course the Persians should be on green bases. The most important part of the empire were the Fertile river areas.
