Awesome stuff, as usual! I agree...that is amazing attention to detail to fix the feet of the camel.  :o

Thanks Mike.


I used a rotary tool to carve away the riders' original saddles.  For those who sit with legs on either side of the camel, I had to widen their stance as well.  Once fitted to their mount, I used greenstuff to rebuild the parts that were damaged or carved away.

All that's left to do is to add texture to the bases and my camel cavalry are ready for paint.

I don't yet have good recipe for painting camels, so I will primer a test model or two to practice on. Good thing I have plenty of extras.

Continually great and inspirational work mate. I look forward to seeing how you paint the camels as I have a pack camel I need to paint.

Very nice additions and conversions.  :-* :-* :-*  I used Foundry Drab 3 with its three layers, when I painted my camels.  I am sure that similar shades exist in other paints as well.

June was a slow hobby month.  My home, like most homes in Western Washington, doesn't have central air conditioning.  Painting in the baking heat with a fan blowing on me is both unpleasant and unproductive, so I spent my relatively few hobby hours in June planning and assembling my Age of Hannibal Graeculi warband.

Things have cooled down enough for me to start thinking about putting paint on minis again.  Near the top of my painting to-do list are my Mutatawwi'a warlord and hearthguard.  All five models have been primered and are ready for paint, but my warlord needed a proper display base, so I updated the magnetized display base I originally built for my mounted Moor warlord.  I added a mace an a greenstuff scarf to the horn blower, and replaced the original standard bearer with a different Brother Vinni Arabian model.  I still need to glue texture to it, but once done, it will be ready for paint.



My 75mm display base isn't permissible under the rules (a Warlord's base caps out at 60mm),  but if you've followed my other threads, you will know that during game play, I prefer to keep my warlords on standard size bases.  Thus, my display bases are exactly as described, purely for display purposes only.

That has to be brutal out there in the Pacific NW! Luckily, I live in the Midwest, where we swing from sweltering to bone chilling on an annual -- if not monthly -- basis!  lol

Looking good! Always fun to see your updates. I wish I had your craftsmanship in modifying figs...
