Miscellaneous 'Medusans'.

So my plan is:

I will finish the turkish army. So, 2x azabs and characters (music band, kid-slave caravane, sultan and jenizeer soup-pot).

If I manage to do it, I think I try to finish the myceanic army (2x troyan infantry, 2x chariots, characters).

I am "meant" to be polishing off some High Elves but I am so sick of the sight of them that I took a break and dug out about a dozen Empire blisters and glued, based and began undercoating them.

No promises just yet, I think I just want to get the Empire in a state that if I get the urge, I can immediately dig them out and begin painting them.

such lovely place for working. It breaths peace and confort!

3 glasses? let me guess, one with water for the painting, another with water for your thirst and the last one.. vodka I suppose... ;)

Ha ha, vodka would perhaps stop my hands from shaking!

I usually have one pot for washing metallics, one for darker high pigment colours and the other for lighter colours. I am fussy about dirty water so having three pots means I have fewer trips to the sink to clean them!

I am going to treat myself to a super duper lamp...

Something like this, especially as winter nights draw in...

I usually change the water.. let me see... once per tale, that means every month...

Dark dark water (beacuse I prime with black and use the same water also for cleaning the big brush of priming)....

I now that sounds terrible, but belive me, I steal minutes for painting in my nighttime and I am not wasting time with water.

Bondsmen in progress - not much to look at here unless you squint. I've greenstuffed a few extra beards and the command stand is made from an Old Glory viking command flanked by a couple of Copplestone horse tribes.

Looking good!, nice idea mix old glory stuf with copplestone.

On the right side of the picture there is a ¿magister millitum? figure completing the battle line?

I see also in the background you still have one of those bottles from old citadel. I think hexagonal or octogonal bottle... I can remember those times

First unit of the month. It represent a kid-slave caravan. It was a common practice from the very beginning of the islam world (Turks and Fatamids did), to take captive kids and rise them as slave-warriors in the Faith. Some times those kids were kidnapped other times demand as tribute to subjugate territories. The Jenizars and other elite units from different ages were made in this way.

I was inspired with Mihael Viteazul aka The last crusade film. In the first half hour of the film shows this practice, when turkish take the children of the walachs as tribute.





By the way I left a picture of my WIP ottoman army

Yes, there are a couple of random vikings in there - Magister Militum and another from Pendraken, I think.

I've still got some original Citadel Colour Paint Set bottles somewhere from 1985. Totally dried up of course.

wow that makes sense then... I though you had them in use  :P
I read somewhere that those pigments/paints are still available. Citadel those years bought the pigment to Coat DArms and rebottle the pigment and change the name... you know.... "rotten flesh" or "boubonic brown". Then GW made their own colours, but nowdays you can still buy Coat DArms which still making the same pigments.

Cote D'Arms are def. still available:

I haven't explored them yet, myself.  Apart from GW I have just been trying Vallejo.

I used to have some of those hex bottles too and amazingly they still hold up today!
