On top of all that 10mm stuff, the releases of the Oathmark plastic lines (so far Dwarves and Orcs) from Northstar tempted me to start some Lord of the Rings inspired armies in 28mm. These will be for Lion/Dragon Rampant and thus each force will be 50ish figures or so. I also got some dark age miniatures from Footsore to be the Rohirrim. I'll need to look up some horse painting guides before starting them in earnest. I'd like to keep these fairly quick to paint so I'm doing a test on 3 minis. The idea is to have basecoats, a bit of shading and some lining and then hit them with the appropriate Polyshades. Basecoated with a bit of shading I'd like to take credit for finally doing a shield transfer but these transfers stick on before you wet and remove the backing so there isn't the usual process. With Polyshades added. Tudor (black on the non orcs, a mix of tudor and walnut) If anything I think they're are still a bit bright. Maybe paint them darker or mix up the tutor can more. Hmmmmmm. Any thoughts?
I'm getting back to painting after a couple of weeks of unwanted break. I'm due to play some games today, so this late Saxon warlord was needed immediately. I got him done with my portable paint kit while sitting at the car dealer waiting on an oil change yesterday, and got the basing done when I got home. The catalog picture shows him with a shield in the left hand. For whatever reason, I didn't get one when I bought him, and having one in his left hand looks very uncomfortable, on top of which it would interfere with use of the axe. So, I think I'm happier with him just shaking his fist at the foe.
