28mm Ancient Cartheginian Libyan Heavy Spearmen

These 28mm Ancient Cartheginian Libyan Heavy Spearmen are from Old Glory USA. They are a work in progress. I had them sitting around for weeks with just the shield designs and highlights to finish. Today I hand painted some sample shield designs; palm trees, lightning, stars, holy symbols, etc. I will have to think about how many I paint per unit.

There are three units. For no very good reason I did two colours of shields per unit so I could see what was what on the battlefield. I actually do them all white in 10mm. If my two tone units get irritating the shields can easily be popped off and moved around.

I like the tartans I have done (just one cloak per unit). I did a load of those on some Old Glory Romano British I mistook for Picts. Doh! I will have to say those are Celts now. Oh well..

WW2 Warlord Games British Commandos

These are some of Warlord Games plastic British Commandos. You can paint them up as French, which just means using alternative shoulder markings - and lashings of garlic.

For some reason the lighting didn't work out for me in these photos. The contrast is cut down a bit from what you see with the naked eye.

28mm WW2 Perry minatures Desert Rats

I am surprised how nicely these Perry miniatures Desert Rats turned out. The proportions are lovely. They remind me of Peter Guilder Connoisseur figures. I didn't have bases for the crew served weapons so I made bases that protected the figures while not taking up too much space. It is frustrating having an oversized base that stops you going into a nice position!
