I have decided to have another go at 10mm figures.
Do I choose a half dozen figures.., errrr No!
Here are the cavalry,
26 bases of light cavalry
6 bases of medium cavalry
10 bases of heavy cavalry
There are also foot troops and civilians to go, but as I started feeling a bit weird with the superglue fumes I thought I had better stop!
These must have been sat in a box for five years. I got them from Pendraken the year they came out.
Someone very kindly gave me the suggestion to carry on with my French and Indian Wars stuff. I was going to and then sat and thought about it. My whole force was to be for skirmish gaming. I already have 45 painted woodland Indians do I really need another thirty? Same with the militia, I have some painted up already… how many do I actually need?
When painting 10mm figures I paint them on the base. Firstly it gives me something to hold onto and secondly it seems to be quicker. I tried painting them on strips, but Nick an old time regular on the Pendraken forum gave me the idea and I have gone that way since then.
They will never win any painting prizes, but it does get an army on the table relatively quickly.
I may actually start on my Amazon warriors.. these are on the whole naked ladies. With some of them on camels. A lot easier to paint methinks!
I do think that the sculptor needed to get out in the fresh air more and meet some actual ladies and not just Dolly Parton.
I have got one army pack already painted along with the barbarians. This will boost the fantasy horde.
They will probably need rebasing as I based them for Warmaster, but since then I have played Hordes of the Things more.
Also in the box were my plains Indians as well as a pile of Colonial British and Egyptian cavalry. Let’s not forget this chap! He is around 20 years old and one of these days I will get him painted.
