I've tried to tell a bit of a story with this vignette. Each pair of figures represent the two pike units I've been working on for what seems like forever; the pink pike and the red boys. The idea is that the two commanders for each phalanx are having a conflab. They may just be talking about what they've had for lunch - who knows! Shield transfers from LBMS. My favourite is the phalangite with his shield slung across his back, lugging his officers shield around as well!
I also took some pictures as I based these for those interested in how I do it.
Figures stuck to base and railway ballast (from model railway accessories) stuck to base in random areas using PVA.
Rest of base covered in ready mixed filler.
All painted liberally with cheap craft paint (Burnt Umber).
Base heavily drybrushed with Vallejo Flat Earth and lightly drybrushed with Vallejo Yellow Ochre.
Various tufts added...
Followed by two lengths and colours of flock.
