Last weekend I spent most of Saturday helping the software folks on a First Robotics Team. I still managed to get a little painting done on Sunday. I am still banging away at trying to clear all the 10mm fantasy figures out of my unpainted lead pile. Along the way, however, I also finally decided to paint this tank gray. It has been sitting on my painting table for months waiting for me to decide.
I worked to knock out the few remaining Pendraken figures I had left from a batch Chris acquired from Ebay. The figures seem a little large for 10mm, but they are good enough looking dwarfs for my tastes in fantasy figures. (After all, how realistic to fantasy figures need to be?!)
Heavily armored and armed dwarf knights? How slow do you think these guys are going to be on the table. Find a place you want defended and concentrate on other units.
Some of these spears are a bit flimsy. I lost one just popping them off the popsicle sticks I use for painting. After a couple of games, they might become angry geriatric dwarfs with canes.
I don’t know what these figures are really supposed to be, but I decided to paint them in garish colors and call them orc berserkers.
I still want to add a little landscaping to this base, but I like the way he turned out.
I’m not sure when these forces will see action — or if they’ll see action — before our large Bear Yourselves Valiantly game at Cold Wars 2015 in March
