Hello everyone. I've been busy painting away in my limited spare time and finally painted the bases on a lot of figures. I finished some WW2 figures and some fantasy figures for Black Tree Design. I still get all jazzed about painting figures for someone else. I also finished a 20 man unit of Zanzibar slavers for come colonial action. I also received the balance of my Christmas present for Wargames Foundry. I have enough figures for another 20 man unit of Zanzibar slavers, 10 Baluchi swordsmen, and some command figures. A 20 man unit of explorer Askari, some porters, a 20 man unit of British Askari, enough Sikhs to bump my current unit up to 20 men, plus some officers. This on top of the previous order from Black Tree and some plastic dark age/medieval/frostgrave sprues has bumped my lead and plastic mountain way into the stratosphere. Anyway, onto the pictures.
These are a combination of Perry Sudanese, Wargames Factory Persians and Numidians, with Perry Zouave arms and heads. I know that the slavers around this time had varying skin tones from very dark African black to "Arab", but I wanted to practice painting some Arab like skin tones. So this particular group of slavers have recently arrived in the area and have not been "in country".
Next are some WW2 Germans and Soviets.
These guys were fun to paint. I always told myself that if I was to ever paint WW2 Germans then I was going to buy some Vallejo paints. I have to say, I really like those paints. All of these figures are from Black Tree Design.
Back to the painting table for me. I'm prepping some of those Wargames Foundry figures.
Thanks for looking. Any C&C is welcome.
