I have finally started work on some models that I bought back at the start of the year. My 6mm Celts arrived in May and I did an unboxing video at the time but other projects meant I couldn't get started on these until now.
Now that I have started preparing them - cleaning them up and glueing them to sticks ready for painting - I have come to appreciate just how fiddly 6mm Chariots are! The irony is that I ought to know all this having assembled and painted a dozen ancient Indian chariots for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge a few years ago.
These Celtic chariots however are much smaller and my fingers are as big and clumsy as ever!
As you can see I also have a considerable body of heavy and light Celtic cavalry to get on with and I'm hoping to get paint on metal in the next day or so.
Oh, I remember repeatedly gluing my fingers together on 6mm chariots. All part of the process ;)ReplyDelete
Yep, that's what happened to me! These ones are even smaller and fiddlier than the the ones I did before. Thankfully I had a spare chariot to work out how best to assemble them. With the swearing bit over, tonight I'll assemble the others!Delete
I recently painted some of these same chariots, myself. They are fiddly but the pain is over quickly.ReplyDelete
The pain of a fiddly assembly or of ripping you're fingerprints off? Both in my case!Delete
If you're chariots are less than 25% fingerprints you've won.ReplyDelete
Hopefully after my 'trial by superglue' last night the rest will be easy.Delete
Not as pretty perhaps, but I use Irregular Miniatures for my 6mm ancient armies. One piece castings, no sticky fingers. But your painted chariots look very goodReplyDelete
