Catching up with 2015

Norman Dean

While 2015 was a very bad year for posting on this blog, it was actually not the worst year for painting. For the most part, I worked on my two 19th-century Imaginations armies, but a burst of productivity in late November saw me finish up a number of Reaper Bones plastic fantasy figures.
This paladin has actually been sitting around mostly complete since 2013, but I finally got her based:
This alchemist had been sitting half-painted for a similar period of time. The various bottles were probably the most fun part of this one:
I tried for a sort of seedy, unshaven look for this two-weaponed fellow, though it might not come through so well in the picture:
This lady ended up giving a rather fierce glare. I decided she was wearing some sort of tight leggings rather than painting her outstretched leg bare:

 As for my Imaginations troops, here are some Occiterran infantry in progress. I’ve been using the Emhar French Infantry for these guys:

A couple of shots of Elabrüner Uhlans on my painting table (originally Lucky Toys Austrians). These are not the most inspiring figures when seen on the sprue, but I was fairly pleased with how they painted up. I had to carve away some of the weird lumpy “grass” from around the horses’ feet, and I used wire lances with paper pennants in place of the ones provided.

These Occiterran artillerymen were completed sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. They started off as ACW Union troops.

 And here’s a few shots of all the units I have completed so far:
