Re: Octobers Painting Challenge with Halloween Bonus

OK I'm in.

We are planning an Oldhammer Horror night ourselves in Cambridge. I have to paint up some defenders for a small Empire town. Grubby, squalid, pathetic unlike the 4th ed equivalents.

Que my small collection of mid 80's late medieval/early renaissance citadel fighters. Add to them a shed load of old citadel foundry mercenaries and we have:

20 Helbiltzen.

20 armbrustschtzen.

30 Ersatzsolder

30 landstrum.

The odd daemon too.

Pictures soon though what to include for this month is yet to be decided. I've converted a bunch of the new foundry casts to reduce the duplicate level.

I'll be doing not one but two spooooky giant monsters. Monsters!
Aaaand... two spooooky "Frankenstein's monster" monsters.
Monsters!

Just like the doctor of old I'll have to assemble all (well, most) of those monstery monsters yet, so I can't provide "before" pics I'm afraid.

The Legion is assembled. Next step, to file down the rough stuff, remove flash and base with sand. There is a lot of them isn't there? I have worked out that I need to paint one mini a day to get them finished in time. My plan is to undercoat in black, drushbrush and wash the metal, block in and wash bone. I'm going to leave the fabrics to last.
