Now that the drywall guy is done (and I can uncover my paint table), I have finished up some of the Rohan heavy infantry. These are a mix of Zvezda and Imex/Emhar vikings.
Again, the Zvezda poses are nicer, in my mind. But the Imex helps fill out the ranks and adds a a few more poses and some diversity in terms of height.
I ended up pinching many of the shields for use in converting some Zvezda Russian Knights so they have round shields (most have those shield-shaped shields). We'll see how that goes!
The basing is the usual. Vinyl floor tile is cut 120x60mm and the backing peeled off. Figures are stuck down, a layer of PVA is applied and sand poured on. When this is dry, I then coat the based in Future floor wax (seals the sand) and (when dry) a drybrushing of orange-brown is used to highlight the "dirt". Then static grass and some clump flocking.
Overall, the effect is pretty good (I think). It is also cheap, durable and easy to do in an assembly line manner. I also think it has the right level of granularity for 1/72 figures.
