Wyvern Wargamers - Saga Day - 22 Day Challange Day 1 Complete

Day 22 draws to a close and I am reasonably pleased with the results so far.

All the foot and Mounted are cleaned up, based and under coated, the figurers are a collection of manufacturers, Gripping Beast, Crusader and Redoubt were up to their usual standard being relatively flash free.

Sgt Major Miniatures took the bulk of the morning to clean up, the casting were not as crisp as the Vendal days. with each figure requiring the hands to be drilled out, all of the excessive flash cut away and the bases filed down so they could be attached to the bases.

It's a real shame as the poses and castings are really good, they should look ok when painted and based with the others, but frustrating to see the detail fading from when they were first released.
I will paint these as a second batch.

First up the Standard Bearers, Musicians, a few slingers and some Calivermen to turn the Dark Age Irish into Elizabethan Irish.


I applied a base colour coat to the tunics and cloaks of the first 16, at this stage I am not to bothered by the detail just need to get the undercoat applied before pressing on to the detail and inking tomorrow.
