I know, I know; I said I'd take a break from bronze! And I did, honest! I completed the 28mm cabin I'd made from Warbases' bits and bobs. Truth is it's rather uninteresting to look at, just a cabin really, hence no dedicated post about it. See ~
So, these 28mm Iberian heavy cavalry from Wargames Foundry figures were sitting on the painting desk, minding their own business, and I just thought they'd look better painted, so, here they are ~
The sculpting is clear and easy to paint, an important issue for we aging wargamers I've found. The poses of horses and riders are not as lively as they could be perhaps, and a little more variety might have been preferred, but they do the job I think! No doubt you will have your opinion on these matters too!
I've a further six figures to paint as Light Cavalry, the sculpts lacking in mail or bronze body armour. That leaves two Aventine units to paint at some stage: the unit of Levy and a unit of Italian Allied infantry for the Carthaginian army. I need shield transfers from LBM for the former, but the latter have hoplon shields and I've enough LBM shield transfers in stock for those.
Nice work. Good to see you're keeping busy and out of trouble.ReplyDelete
A married man will always be in trouble 🙂Delete
Trouble? I know it not...😉Delete
Just mind you don't get cabin fever Mr.B.Delete
I have three others in the queue, including the kit you kindly sent me.Delete
Those have come out rather well, you have the chequered flag in sight on this project😉ReplyDelete
PS. Like the summer house too, will have to get one😉Delete
Thanks Phil! I'm looking forward to a cold beer in the summer house later this year!Delete
More nice units David and the lack of variety of pose is not too bad, but I do prefer it when you can add variety to the look of a unit. Nice cabin too:ReplyDelete
Thanks SteveJ. Decent figures, just a tad flat to my mind.Delete
Lovely building and wonderful looking cavalry!ReplyDelete
Thanks Phil, much appreciated.Delete
A very desirable residence David and the cavalry are excellent as ever.ReplyDelete
Thanks George, kind as ever!Delete

Thank you Robbie and a Happy New Year to you too! Plodding though is all I'm up to nowadays 😉Delete
A nice looking unit David .ReplyDelete
In a very colourful period the Spanish still manage to look a bit exotic...
Your cabin is exactly what it says it is... so perfectly good as far as I am concerned...
All the best. Aly
Thanks Aly, your encouragement is always welcome!Delete
