Some more stuff from the painting queue

With the Arab Infantry currently proving to be too much of a task to get started on finishing right now I've been diverted by some small-scale painting tasks that had been hanging around for a while waiting to force their way intro the queue. 

I also bought a small turntable from eBay (affiliate link to eBay here), which shipped from China incredibly quickly and (after getting 3 rechargeable batteries) seems to be working fine and gives a different option for showing off figures when I'm taking photos with my lightbox. 

The end result is this eclectic collection of models and videos :


1/300th T55's from Butlers Printed Models


Dr Andrei Sokolov - a Special Edition Malifaux figure


"New" Victrix 1/144th scale Sherman 



15mm Essex Sparabara, rebased and refurbished a little. 



I've got too many bases of these for what I need to field the army in ADLG, so I decided to rebase in an effort to pack the rear ranks with a lot more archers than the usual 3 or 4 in a "second rank" to give a more "biblical horde" effect.



You may also remember these Perry plastic Afghan warriors being made up a while ago - well, they are now painted and make absolutely fantastic Arabs !




The shield design at the front is a waterslide transfer made from a downloaded image of a real Indian shield in a museum somewhere!


These are the Kings of Kitbash - Fireforge Mongols, Perry Afghans and Wargames Atlantic Persians with some Fireforge Russian heads and a few Gripping Beast Arab bits as well.



I've ended up using the large pavise-like shields to give me a few bases of mixed spear/bow Arab troops for the handful of armies that have these formations. 






A very colourful bunch in their contrast paints!




And, to wrap up, a few more videos of the 28mm Arabs, including the second elephant from Gripping Beast in all it's glory
