Wow! This is brilliant Frank  :o

Especially because my speed painted Carthaginian 1:72 FoG army that uses the same figures now looks like little turds with spears and shields on them... *sigh* :'(

Everything looks fantastic! I especially like the infantry. The shields and patterns on the clothing are nicely done. These will look great on the table.

I'd love to see a photo of the entire group when your done.

Just seen these - WOW!  :o

Beautiful job, as had been said for 28, let alone 20.

Well done Frank.

OK, it will take some time, but I will post some step by step pictures!

In the meantime…here the next battlegroup...some Celtic cavalry....

Holy Celtic Cow!

even better than the others!




just one question: you have a undoubted skill, why do you use it on plastic kits?
couldn't you just use metal 28mm or 15mm?
i know it is more expensive, but the final result should be EVEN better!

@Sangennaru: I also have a lot of 28mm miniatures (Sudan, Samurai, East Africa, FIW, Fantasy and Star Wars). These are very good for skirmish games and small battles, but when it comes to big battles, I prefer 1/72 Miniatures. 15mm Miniatures are not my cup of tea…I don’t like to paint them.

My next battlegroup are some mumidian light horse. They are made more then ten year ago by Hät, one of their first miniature-sets. I really like these horses.

These are lovely! I have a question, though. Are the plastics you mention the softer plastics of the likes of Italeri? If so, do you have any trouble getting paints to stick to them? Which paints do you use, by the way?

Cheers,

David

Nothing to add to what has already been said, but I do thank you for sharing.  I love seeing work of this quality presented in an interesting, dramatic setting.  Richard
