My participation in this years Winter Painting Challenge has seen me almost complete a whole Pyrrhic Army (the final units will be posted next week) so the chance to work on some terrain for a change came as a pleasant diversion. As soon as I saw the list of bonus rounds I knew what I was going to do for the 'Home' round. I already had these models but hadn't got round to painting them before the Challenge commenced.
Here we have a modest farm house overlooking a large grain barn and stables. The landowner and his family look on as the foreman directs the farms slaves about their daily business. Men carry sacks of grain from the barn on their way to the stables. Women carry out other chores gathering items for food and heading out to tend the fields.
These models are all by Leven Miniatures and are cast in very good quality resin with virtually no blemishes or bubbles. They therefore needed very little preparation except for a quick clean prior to priming. Unlike some resin this material doesn't soak up the paint so they are pretty easy to work on. The casts are clean and full of crisp detail making painting very easy.
Very nice. Who makes the little chaps?ReplyDelete
The figures are from Baccus (EQU14 Greek/Roman civilians) and the buildings are by Leven Miniatures.Delete
Quite beautiful Lee!ReplyDelete
Thanks...pity I didn't have any spare animal figures to include. Baccus are great but their customer service is very slow. My last order took nearly a month to arrive and I couldn't delay this entry to the Challenge for the sake of a donkey or two!Delete
This was a cracking entry Lee, lovely work Sir.ReplyDelete
Cheers for that.Delete
Fantastic job on these Lee. The shading on the roofs is great.ReplyDelete
I must say it is quite delightful.ReplyDelete
oooh..very nice. I dug one of those up when I was a student!ReplyDelete
As I said on your AHPC post, this was a lovely entry. Terrific model, well painted and presented - the roof in particular is top shelf. Lovely stuff - would make a great objective point for the barbarians to plunder.ReplyDelete
What technique did you use for the roof tiles?ReplyDelete
