Reconquista Heavy Foot

After a week away from the painting desk due to travel, I had some time at the end of the work week to return to the brushes and pots of paint.  First unit to muster off the painting desk is a twelve figure stand of Black Tree Design armored infantry for the Reconquista project.

These twelve warriors comprise one Impetvs stand and will be used as either Spanish or Mercenary heavy infantry.  They will likely see action on both sides of the gaming table.  BTD figures from the Warriors of Island and 2nd Crusade range are very nicely sculpted.  Covered nearly head to toe in mail, these chaps can be ready for battle quite quickly.  In fact, a second unit of twelve is on the painting table in a repeat performance.  After a long week away, it is gratifying to be able to push out a unit to get back into the swing of production.

  1. Very nice.

    Are those tufts on the base, or loose static grass? Either way, it looks good.

    1. Thanks, Paul! Perhaps, he is drawing fire towards himself to allow his comrades to close?

    1. Thanks, Phil! I thought he was the leader making some Grand Gesture...probably right before being potted by several arrows. Maybe that should be "Grand Jester" rather than "Grand Gesture?"

  7. Lovely painting! I do like figures that can pull double duty.

    Last week you were on the road? Nothing slows you down!
