Halfway through the day I had to pop to Kev's as he was acquiring some new armies in 15mm for the Seven years war in exchange for his prized Jacobites. With the deal negotiated we sat down and discussed our options with gaming for a bit and of course it was an opportunity for us to discuss the next few weeks planned painting during the challenge.
I returned home to continue the warband I had only to do the shields, and this is where things get a bit mental with, the Britons very much like the Gauls they liked patterns on their shields.
Yes despite Kevs protestations about not needing plaids and striped clothing, I went ahead and did them I think he knew deep down I would not be able to restrain myself even if it does slow down the painting. But if that was not bad enough then the free hand shields may certainly be a step too far, well my eyes feel the burn from doing these on such small figures anyway!
