Well, let's just say that Copplestone-sculpted Aztecs would have been worth seeing.

Wrong - Mark never had the intention to do Meso or South Americans. The range was split up between us both with him doing the Europeans and I would have done the rest of the range.



Copplestone-sculpted Aztecs would be worth seeing.

Maybe one day...  ::)

FINALLY! Some news and some pics.

Here are several pics of what I've got done over the last month or so in regards to the project. Because of a number of factors beyond my control (and some well within the control of certain vendors), critical pieces of the project were missing until relatively recently, some orders were filled incorrectly, etc,etc. That, combined with the starting of Black Army means that I haven't had as much time to work on this as I'd like, so I may not get it done in time for Kublacon. At the very least, it will be done in time for Pacificon, at the end of the summer.

The figs shown here still need to have their bases finished and a final cote of matte sealer, but otherwise are ready to go!

All miniatures here are Eureka pieces. They shipped quickly, beautifully, and with minimal prep. Great stuff. Again, I'll break this up into a couple posts to try to cut down on loading time.

First, some Eagle Warriors by Eureka. I am very happy with my work on these.



Native Bearers. These will be used as baggage markers for the Conquistadors.



More in the next post.

-Doc

Conquistadors with sword and buckler in light/cotton armor.




Huaxtec suit Warriors (these are Aztecs too, the suit is known as the 'Huaxtec Suit'):




And finally, Father Garaputo and the Dominican Friars.



I have had a lot of fun with these, and hope to get more done soon. At the moment, I'm up to my neck in historical terrain for my MAW demo at the show, so I've been taking a break from these and working on less historical subjects (mainly Pulp Sci-Fi)

Comments welcome, as always.

Pretty darn good if I do say so myself. I was looking forward to seeing how the Eureka mins would turn out and am not dissaponted. I am thinking of sending off an order if not to then deffantly tommrow. Going to restart an old game of Riddile of steel with some of thouse guys.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Thank you kindly, Commissar. I'm glad you like 'em. More coming soon.

But overall, yes, I think they're definitely worth the price. The best I've seen, really. I got in a shipment of the Jaguar Knights recently, and those are quite good, too, as are all the suit wearers, novices, etc.
