Steppe Nomad Full Cantabrian Circle and Single Bases

Post by Atheling » Sun Nov 28, 2021 3:32 pm

Back in the groove!

It seems like a very long time since I actually managed to work on any of my own stuff. I've started working on some Heavy Cavalry which will join the Early Byzantine long with another such unit and Belisarius' Boukellaroi.

I finally got around to basing the last six of my Horse Archers which have been sitting in a tray on some bubble wrap for a few months now. A quick dust down and it was out with the filler/spackle, leave over night, glue on the sand (leave overnight again) then basecoat and dry brush. (see Steppe Nomad Horse Archers for the other six).

I have to say that I have been extremely impressed with the exquisite Aventine Miniatures Steppe Nomad cavalry; such attention to detail. Every bit as good as their Early Byzantines and that is really saying something! I look forward to seeing what Keith and Adam do with the remoulding of the range.

Without further ado, the complete Cantabrian Circle- all those Horse Archers looks kind of awesome and I cannot wait to get it into the table top!

Thanks Adam. I've always been into vignette style basing since I saw David Imrie's work at SESWC all those years ago. Brian Phillips too. I was very lucky in that I was a member of a club who had a lot of exceptional painters at the time and it had a huge impact on my painting and modelling of units etc.
