I have talked about scraping, gluing to paint sticks and priming figs as prep for when the weather turns. I am absolutely surrounded by primed and ready figs. So of course, I started a newish project.
28mm High Elves.
I had thought I would simply sell my GW 28mm stuff since I was doing big battles with Commands and Colors, and Hail Caesar! Fantasy in 15mm. Wasn't going to do anything but individually mounted warbands (30-40 figs) in 28mm. But then I played Mayhem at the Baron's Chateau and thought that I could paint about 60 figs and have a nice sized contingent for the game. Its a pretty fun game. Get it at Wargame Vault. A base is a unit. We use 60mm stands. That's up to 8 figs a stand depending on the size of the figs.
So I broke out that way to big and old High Elf army sitting in boxes and still shrink wrapped in many cases, and voila! I have on paint sticks 2 Units of Spear, 2 Units of Bow, 3 Units of Bolt Throwers, 1 Unit of Halberds, 1 Unit of Axes, 1 Unit of Great Swords, 1 Unit of Light Bow, 2 Units of Cav, 1 Dragon, General Stand, 1 Hero, 1 Magic User. That's a Total of 72 figs and its a complete faction.
|GW house painted Phoenix Guard. Some of my favorite figs and a great paint job.|
|Not mine either, but very nice and clean. I like them.|
I hope to get the basic units done over thanksgiving break. We shall see. My brother and sister in-law are coming for thanksgiving so, probably a lot of drinking and less painting.
