I picked up a bit of painting work for a friend in Ontario and, with my ear infection on the retreat, I've just churned out the first units.
These are 15mm Turcoman archers for his Saracen army. The figures are made by Legio-Heroica in France and are quite lovely.
These were two-part figures (riders and horse). Virtually no flash and nice fit. Some of the other figures require gluing on shields and spears which was less fiddly than I thought it would be.
I think they took the paint quite nicely. The various sources i used showed them to be a mix of bright colours (especially the tack) and drab colours (homespun linen and wool?). I tried for a drabber, more middle eastern base than usual. They are based on standard DBA bases, although David intends to use them for Shattered Lances.
Next up: Some armoured Guhlam mounted archers. And I need to start rebasing 6mm AWI figures for MayDay.
