Would definitely make life easier to leave him like that
Good idea :D
Hopefully I'll get them primed and ready for my entry for the July painting challenge if I have time with moving flats.
Speaking of the painting challenge, here's my June entry finished.
A great cannon and my first war machine of the army! I have a good idea for some back story for it but I haven't really had chance to write it up yet in the same way as the spearmen but the gist of it is the cannon was on load from Nuln (hence black instead of white on the cannon) but was thought lost in battle, however it was salvaged by the engineers of Ostermark and restored to battle readiness - it's just no one bothered to tell the engineering school of Nuln ;) /yoink
I'll also be passing off the 2 crew members with the same head as twins, one deaf in the left ear and one deaf in the right ear from standing on opposite sides of the cannon.
Having seen a few other people's cannons I decided they were too clean so I've gone for a look of a cannon that has been fired a few times. I'm happy with the cannon itself but I might go back to the crew at some point and dirty them up properly.
Again bases are yet to be ordered/made but once I'm done with the militia I think I'll have a go at making a green stuff 'stamp' to make bases. I already have an outline done on some suitable material I just need to green stuff the pattern and let it set then I can production line my own bases
Let me know what you think I can take bad as well as good.
