Andalusian first full spear unit painted...
August 22nd, 2019
Completely painted but not quite based. I finished the last two figures and put together the first draft of the multi-based unit
for my fifteen-years in the making al-Andalus army in 28mm. Check out the images in the Andalusian Image Gallery.
I'm pretty happy with these, but there is almost too much detail on all of the figs. A lot of them will get lost in the crowd... With my
Vikings I had some that were plainly dressed mixed in to save time and also save some fancy figs from getting lost in the crowd. Not the
case with these exactly. So, I'm considering saving some of these for a second unit and painting up more simple figs... but let's face it,
that will take me another five years to finish :)
On the topic of five-year projects... I picked up a full(ish) copy of Battle Masters to play with the kid. I had fond memories of pushing those
little units around as a young adult, and thought it would be a fun way to get the kids to play miniature games. After it arrived and we set it
all up, played a few amazingly fun games, I imagined how nice the figs would look all painted up... Should I paint that game? How should I base the figs?
We'll see how it comes together, but you might see some painted Battle Masters figs on this site in the future.
