Here are the finished units based and ready to go. I'm not the biggest fan of basing miniatures and my procedure so far is an amalgamation of things that i've found to work quite well in the past, such as;
- using wooden MDF bases which don't warp when wet pva is applied
- using a base of filler so that the lead bases on each figure do not show through
- paint and drybrush, followed by
- scrub and then static grass
I'm still not completely happy with it, I'd like to add other 'tufts' of foliage to represent tall weeds / wild plants or scrub but I can't seem to find the right stuff. I tend to use less grass than usual in an attempt to represent dry italian earth but I still feel that something is lacking, any suggestions?I have the same amount of marching arquebusiers again, with the same figures but i'll put that on the backburner for now as i'm a bit Landsknechted out!
Next on the workbench will be some more Tudors, quite what I haven't figured out yet as i'm still assembling a perry boxed set (yes, the allied contingent is becoming an army!)
