And one is finished…
I did a bit more on them all but decided to crack on and finish at least one of them.
The rest of them still have a long way to go.
I am quite pleased with the Blue highlights on most of them apart from second on the right, it looks a bit weird. I will try and remember to sort it out tomorrow, as he is the one that had only one unpainted epaulette I don’t rate my chances of remembering to tone down a highlight.
The highlight on the black isn’t showing up very well in these photos. I didn’t want it to be in your face, but maybe this isn’t in your face enough. I went for a blue-grey colour which can be seen on the boots of the second from the left.
As I said yesterday, I really like these figures, and if truth be known I prefer the civilians over the uniformed ones. But to be honest it might be that the one I finished was really quick to paint up!
I think that, although I really like the dwarves, I won’t be getting many more as I have so much other Flintloque stuff to paint up that I would never get to them.
Off the top of my head I have the following:
30 infantry and 6 cavalry
30 infantry plus 2 sets of Sharke’s rifles
30 infantry and 12 cavalry
Not to mention various random specials, individuals and a box of dark elves I haven’t got a clue what to do with. I have a niggling feeling that I am missing stuff from the above lists.
I suppose I could flog off some of the above especially the orcs. I already have one of the rifles sets painted so I really don’t need any more. I have 25 orc Militia which, to be honest, I only bought so that I could get a couple of figures that were no longer available.
I succumbed again!
My excuse, I keep trying to convince myself, is that they are for my little boy. These are now starting to get a bit more pricey. £7.99 for three figures and a pot of gun metal paint. Now if I was desperate to collect space Marines then the value would be much better.
I will probably get the next issue to get the half dozen pox walkers and then call it a day unless something awesome appears.
