Odds and Sods Off the Painting Desk

A small, eclectic mix of stuff off the painting desk today.

First up, is a two-figure stand of mounted Saracen cavalry from Black Tree Design.  My plan for this stand is to use it as a native warlord command stand for the Great Game project.  With some of the highly ornamented noble cavalry from Foundry's Sikh Wars' range, I figured these guys would fit right in. 
Next off the painting desk are six, Spanish infantry in campaign gear for the Spanish-American War project.  These half-dozen figures will be used (obviously) as prone markers.  Still a handful of prone figures to hit the painting desk including both Americans and Spanish.  Figures are Old Glory.

    1. Thank you, Phil. The REAL challenge is figuring out how you paint skin tones so well!

  14. The Saracens look good, and a nice counter point to the cloth and leather that otherwise dominates the collection.

    1. I agree! I planned to have this warlord leading Sikhs and Afghans on the NWF but they could see service in the Reconquista too.
