Anyhow I actually put in some concerted hobby time and got all of the forces washed up and glued to washers. I finished the clay layer on the bases as well, still need to add goop and sand. I will do some more priming today and hopefully start applying the first wash to help pick out detail.
|The whole lot.|
Although I still have a lot of work to do I am feeling good about this project, thus far. I'm not sure why the flash didn't seem to go off, I rushed these pics to get this post out.
Also note that the Swiss pikemen by MiniArt, the silver guys behind the gray Zvezda roman auxiliaries were modified in that I snipped off the pike stub and drilled out their forward hand to make a socket for the rest of the pike. The little piece included to join pike handle to pike shaft was clunky and crappy. I only had one drill slip where it looks like it os coming out of his wrist instead of his hand. Not too bad.
