Here's those Arabs... for the last time (for a while)

 Yep, finally the mega-project is done and dusted. Or, matt varnished more accurately. 

That means an "all options" ADLG Generic Arab Dynasties army in 25/8mm plastic and metal is now ready to be used, whenever that may be. 

Here are the final set of full-army photos;




















There are plenty more photos of the individual figures on the following pages on Madaxeman.com:

Arab Infantry... the Spearmen Arrive

 That project that's "nearly" done... we all have one, and mine is the interminable Arab 28mm army which continued to threaten to last into next year. 

The latest non-self-inflicted delay is an inability to get outside to do some matt varnishing, so I've just taken some photos anyway of the infantry who are waiting on a bit of Testors and thrown them online with pics of all the other infantry I've done so far. 


Artizan Designs commanders with mandatory LBMS flag




Mostly Perry Spearmen


More eclectic spearmen (GB, Footsore, Perry, possibly even BTD ?)


Serious contrast paint action !


Mostly Perry

There is a more complete set of photos - and some video - of these and the other infantry already finished online on the website.

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

The Kitbashed Arab Cavalry - Part II

 After a brief hiatus here are the rest of the 60-odd kitbashed Arab cavalry to complete the mounted component of my 28mm Generic Arab Dynasties army:

There's a bucketload of photos on the full page (which you can access here) where you will also find some details of the Contrast Paints I used on them, but anyway here is a taster of the photos.
