After finish a bunch of Prussian 10mm cavalry, I was looking for a short project as a change of pace. As we are beginning development of LSNC: Fantasy, Ancients, and Mediaeval, I’m slowly building my army for play testing. Taking figures from one of the Battle of Five Armies boxed sets, above is a picture of three units of dwarves, and below is a picture of three units of human spearmen.
Chris asked the other day why I painted my human in different colors. I want the option of either giving a player a “brigade” of human bowmen, or creating mixed “legions” with spearmen, bowmen, swordsmen, etc. In this way, I can have a maroon legion, green legion, and blue legion of humans.
These 10mm fantasy figures on strips paint very, very quickly. Up close, they certainly don’t look as nice as 28mm figures, but deployed on the table at arms length, they really look like units in battle formation.
