Here they are painted up. Ran out of bases though. Bum. I'll finish the basing all in one go.

I think a sconce is in order, otherwise those siege engineers won't have anything to do... ::) ;)

Great set of engineering figures, are you going to do any equipment, wagons, wheel barrows and any special terrain bases?

 Thanks. Hadn't thought that far ahead... guess I should really. Be rude not to.

If you’re feeling brave you could have a go at converting the chap with the wheelbarrow from the WWII civilians. The engineers are looking really good.

Excellent work Radar, topnotch conversions I for one can only only aspire to.

Thanks Mike. If someone as cack handed and ham fisted as I can do it, anyone can.
Not actually that difficult. Hardest part was working out what to do. Headswap - simple. Green stuff was initially scary, but follow the rules - make it, leave it to go off for a bit, keep your implements wet. I didn't actually do that much tbh. I am now, even more in awe of people like Martin who sculpt our toys in the first place.

Leman - I can't continue not-painting™ harquebusiers any longer. Please don't distract me with talk of wheelbarrows ;)

Completed! Now to paint cavalry. :(
But when I have finished the cavalry, I've promised myself a star fort. :)

Well, those turned out rather well!

You probably owe yourself a Star Fort now :)

The finished units look fantastic. Where did you get the bases from?

Thanks for the kind words people.
Bases are from Warbases. Penny sized bases with 4×2 movement tray.
