Great work on these. I've had a couple of units of infantry on the go for too long. I might just have to get back to these soon.

Hello once again!

Painting and basing has now been completed on the unit of 12 Fodder! Once again I used oil paints and this time around I wanted to add some details and definitions, so I went to work with some Enamel Washes. Enamel washes are great, in particular, for Turnip28 as once dry they leave a chalky/dusty effect.




























"Dear Journal, it's been two weeks since we left the ruins in the north; that's where I found the pictures or paintings as they were called, of the strange woman; I found two of the same! I wanted to give thanks to the Great Root for the find so I begun to pay homage by drawing on my favourite root, the Carrot. One of the lads who is more well versed than I gasped when he saw what I was doing! He said the ruins must have been the 'Loov-Ra' or something like that and that the pictures were very valuable once; he also said they kept two copies, the original and another for the people to look at......... If the original is worth something, I hope my artistic homage was done on the copy as I'm thinking of trading in the original for a bag of potatoes and some carrots of course....."







The banner was printed onto Japanese Rice Paper. I like using this type of paper for banners as it prints out in great quality and if you have a two sided flag that you glued together you can manipulate it whilst it's drying to give off the effect of movement in the wind.

And lastly, here's a group shot of the project so far:




I hope you like the latest instalment and next up on the work bench will be a menacing unit of 'Brutes' - a 6 man unit of heavy infantry.

Stay tuned for more!

Lovely work on this unit  :-*

I particularly like the replacement bayonets tied to the muskets. Consider that idea stolen!
