So I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m never going to finish this army in 28mm. I really can’t cope with painting such large figures so it’s time for a different approach.

So bring on 15mm.

Well at least bring on 15mm to see if its feasible or not .  So I ordered a pack of unarmoured Scutari from Forged in Battle and some more 20×20 bases from Pendraken.

For easy painting I sprayed them grey and did a heavy  white drybrush and (sorry for the lack of photos) then blocked coloured them in and gave them a wash of watered down Soft tone from Army Painter.

 

To give the army a grander look I decided on 2 figures per base.

And this is how the first attempt turned out.

 

 

Hang on a minute lads, I've got a great idea.

Finally something nearly completed

Love the Instar Matt varnish I got.

Works really well

The rest is Vajello Green ochre for the tunics. A brown for the leather . Cant remember which one and Instar warm flesh for the err… flesh

Everything was then AP dipped. Well AP glazed but its the same effect

The usual LBMS shield decals

Pretty happy with them

Can only be onwards and upwards from here .

To the sunlit uplands and beyond!

So finally made a start

The more Eagle eyed among you will  be asking why I didn’t glue the spears in place before priming

Believe me. I’m asking myself some very stern questions about this as well

As always.  Cue the crap photo

Having been in clutches of the Great Deceiver and his despicable plastic hordes for longer than I care  to think about I have finally awoken to step away from the slag heaps of sprues and stupid fiddly bits  and never ending gallons toxic waste that is  Tamiya thin and once again step once more upon the sunlit uplands that is metal figures.

 

So some lovely Crusader  miniatures in the form of 28mm spear wielding Scutari dropped  through the door this morning

And here is a crappy photo of them

Finally I escape
