|An Ogre by Reaper (Bob Olley)|
I also wanted to share a picture from the workbench of a WIP. I am starting work on a War of the Roses Yorkist army, and though my bulk of figures from Old Glory is still on the way, I have obtained a set of Perry's exquisitely sculpted Yorkist command figures. I decided I would pass the time waiting paiting up a couple of those, though I usually like to use command stands for last, or use them as a 'treat' in between painting the rank and file. Here is a picture of the ever-dashing, ever-heroic Edward IV Plantagenet in his storied gilt armor (be it true or no, I wanted a hero figure like Edward to stand out on the table). It is not finished yet, I still have to do some washes and a little highlighting, but I think I will like the way he turns out, especially when grouped with a standard bearer holding his banner aloft. More pics to come in future.
