Rock or spear, boss?

Here are my first figures of this year. It's the Hat 8184 Greek catapult set. A review can be seen here. The reason I've painted this set is, one because I had them from a swap with Paul from Paul's Bods, and second I had a duel with the great Rich from West Models and Figures. The result of the duel at Benno's Figures Forum can be seen here.

The set painted very nice. It's also the first time I'm pleased with the result of painting white uniforms. I first gave them a white basecoat and then used a Vallejo grey wash. After that I highlighted the upper parts of the white. The catapult was another story. Painting was ok but while I was assembling it, I found out that I was missing two parts. The two little parts to attache the slings (I hope this is the right word in English!). So those little parts on the back of the catapult are scratchbuild. The rope on the catapult is given by my wife! The grass on the base is from Games Workshop.













I hope you like it!

  4. That catapult is epic! Really like the poses on these figures and you've done a fine job of painting them.

    The duel was very close. Just by one point, Peter.

    Great start to your New Year!

    1. Thanks Anne! Those duels are for fun, and mostly I try to paint something else as Napoleonic figures!
      But yes it was close!

  8. Very good work like always!
    the catapult is very impressive and the figures are well painted.
    Good job!

    (and you didn't loose this duel, Peter, I'm sure that Rich has the same advice.)
