What happens when a D&D friend says "Oh, you paint minis? Here, paint all of these!" and hands you a bunch of them he's had in a box forever? This, apparently. Crossbowmen in both stupidly ostentatious gold and purple as well as in a less crazy look.
The last 2 weeks I've rushed (after work) through a set of bones Anhurians - my samples from Bones 2, and 1 pack of each of swordsmen, spearmen, bowmen, and crossbowmen. I needed fantasy soldiers eventually. First off a class photo. More photos of each to come - I just have to crop them and get them off my phone. I tried a variety of skin tones, but there wasn't much distinguishing 3 of them. I was originally planning some freehand on the shields, but decided not to after testing out my plans. I may revisit that at a later date. WIP kinda
So, for Christmas my parents went down my Reaper shopping list and scored one of each of the Anhurian units I had put on there - I had thought I might get one or tw, but all at once? WAHOO! Now I have a small horde of little metal men crying out to be painted and fielded, not to mention 3 Doors Down playing in the back of my head... Here's the first wave, with my already painted Anhurians. Waiting in the wings are an Anhurian elite guard, an Anhurian cavalry, and two swordsmen - I think there were supposed to be four in the blister, though, so I have an e-mail into Reaper about that, and I'll wait on unblistering them until I hear back. I'm torn on doing them all in the "stock" sapphire blue color, ala L2PK1 (and my current Anhurians), and separating them into squads and doing some blue, some red, and maybe some green. I've separated the men-at-arms, crossbowmen, and archers into two units, and done the first half with Reaper brush-on primer. The plan right now is to do the other unit in black gesso.
