New Numidians


Here are the first units of Numidians for the Zama project.  Of the first 50 shown here, 30 are finished and 20 need snagging and basing.  Roughly 40 of the 50 were painted by Greg (Merci beaucoup!) but I did highlighting, retouching and the basing.




I'm really pleased with them!  There are still the better part of 150 foot remaining to retouch and base though.   Fortunately Greg's hard work means that they roll of the production line pretty rapidly!

I've completed my Dissertation, and hope to be able to get back to paitning and posting daily, now.

Hey, nice Numidians. Good work you two. The base look great. Simple, but they work well with the miniatures.

Ye more importantly, congratulations on finishing your dissertation! Masters or PhD? Anything history related?

Hi Simon, coming along very nicely. I think this lot puts you in the lead!

Hi Doc a Masters; in Human Resource Development. I denjoyed the course, but the Dissertation was a huge job! I could definitely fancy doing a History related course at some stage, though. There's a great War Studies MA at Kings College, where you have to design a board game as part of the course!

Hi Caliban, my plan is to finish and base about 30 minis a week, until I've worked through Greg's Numidimountain. After that I need to get back onto the Aventine legion, which is the main task...

I love the shading on these guys!

Hi Secundus, IIRC Greg uses the GW washes. I'm trying them myself.

Congrats on the great pictures! And congrats on your dissertation!

BigRedBat said...

Thanks Konstantinos, I was certainly pleased to wrap the dissertation up! That Der Alt Fritz game looked impressive, I'd have loved to see that...

Looking very nice! Are those for HOTT? What size bases are they on? They look like 40 wide.

BigRedBat said...

Hi there Rudy, they are all on 60x60s or 60x120s. The bigger bases enable me to position the riders irregularly- I don't like it when LC all ride forwards, parallel to each other.
