Bruttians Completed

'ere they are in all there Bruttish glory:



This is the first of two units.  Greg Privat (who originally painted the figures; I detailed and did the shields) is painting the extra figures I need for the second unit, which is 2/3 complete.  These are all Crusader figures, and very nice ones, too.  The decision to cast the heads separately, means the plumes are great and I've not lost a single feather during assembly!

Hi Simon, very nice indeed: they look mean and veteran, just right for the third line at Zama. You're making quick progress - how far through the project do you reckon you are now?

Cheers
Paul

This project is fascinating - i check most days to see what progress is been made. All very excellent - and good news on the Masters too!

They look fantastic completed. You two make a good team!

Thanks chaps; welcome S!

Paul, I think we have about 75% painted and perhaps half of the remainder are with painters; the balance are the Aventine minis that aren't yet cast but should be soon. Then there's the boards that are built but need to be decorated. I've not yet told my wife that our dining room will be uninhabitable for 4 or 5 weeks while I do this...

Dont they look good. You will have the guts of your Pyrrhic army when this one is done.

Keep it up, we are getting there.

Hi Keith, I hadn't twigged until around a week ago that they kill two birds with one stone....

Hi Simon,

Excellent work, The unit has a lot of animation and the shields and basing look the biz.

Looking forward to watching your army grow.

Cheers Paul

They look great. You're really making good progress.

BigRedBat said...

Thanks Phil. I was lying awake last night, however, worrying about how much remains to be done!

Love them. Seriously great job there. This is my favourite era at the moment and these really capture the flavour.
