Having downtime between delivery and pickup during the day, sometimes I can get a bit of basic painting in while sitting in the cramped seats of the bus. With only poor natural lighting and poor positioning hunched over as I am, no great detail can be done as you can imagine; and for my version of the Irish with their rather plain dress and, well knowing that many poor brush strokes can be covered up by a heavy wash of paint, I set about doing this army of 15mm for my DBA collection.
|lots of painting gaffs but really I couldn't see a lot of the details sitting on a bus. Even with my reading glasses on. Sigh.|
|These are converted Corvus Belli Numidians - which were needed for the bare Irish legs - on which I added "green stuff" cloaks|
|Corvus Belli Irish Kerns from their old HYW range. The first strip has been given a wash stain already.|
|The completed army. Yeah, well it's DBA ain't it!|
