(AP 2017) DA for Congo
« on: July 24, 2017, 03:33:58 AM »
Ever since I picked up congo at the end of last year I had wanted to paint some of my Darkest African horde from Foundry.  The good Dr Mathias inspired me to purchase way too many of them a few years ago plus they had a sale...

Anyway, I will try to clear the table of at least these:


2017 A:-100; 2016:+1; 2015:-356; 2014:-164 2013:-418;  2012:-159

Looks like a nice force :)

Nice skin tones.

Agreed, the overall unity of the figures and shields is great. Are those the Northstar spears?

Thanks for comments. 

I bought a lot of spears from Warlord UK a few years back when I painted a Dacian force. They might be the same.  Real metal with real sharp points. I leave them unpainted as a reminder/warning...

This project is not dead though it was mostly dead for a bit.  Finally managed to finish basing the painted units.


Replaced the picture for one without dog hair...
