... end of the month we can vote on which one we like the most of the two ... to see who's won the pairing ... you can run a little competition to see who wins the crowd ... and their freedom.
Love the two guys you have already painted ... The 'barbarian' Thraex gets my vote. Love the owl.
Just a small suggestion ... where you have based them up so they don't end up on a little mound make a sausage of any kind of putty and run it around the base then use it to blend the step into the base. It is a pain ... but it is well worth it. You have to see it like cleaning off mould lines or green stuffing the join on plastic horse's necks. You can do it quite quickly as it does not matter if it is rough. You can see the effect on my cowboys (below) .... underneath the sand is a fat foundry base but you would never know it was there.
I think you are painting this lot just to make the rest of us look bad.
Not to be outdone by Sigur ... and to follow my own advice ...
I may try and do some Normans at the same time as the Vikings so I end up with two SAGA forces.
