This time I’m submitting 40 x 28mm Perry Plastic Mahdists for a change of pace from complicated uniforms and basing.
I really must thank Curt for getting me motivated with the challenge! These guys have been sitting assembled and undercoated for the best part of 12 months I think. In our group we like to think of this as “letting the undercoat cure properly”. ;-)
I’ve painted them up as early period Nile Arabs and/or Khordofan rebels. I’ve been deliberately very generic with the clothing so I can mix and match them and not have them obviously out of place. Like Mr Awdry I couldn’t resist letting a couple of red fez type hats into play.
In total this gives me 120 (3 boxes full) of these guys painted up now. A decent sized force for TSATF so it’s obviously time to get back to some gaming in the Sudan now I can do something quite large.
If, as you say, languishing figures are termed as 'curing' then I have a veritable smokehouse of miniatures awaiting attention in my hobbyroom.
You've done a cracking job on these Millsy. I quite like the splashes of colour with their clothing - very dynamic.
This horde of tribesmen will give Millsy a very tidy 200 points to add to his tally. Well done!
