Only one unit for the 28mm Reconquista project made it across the painting desk in 2015. To remedy that neglect, I begin 2016 with a four figure stand of Moorish camelry from BTD.
The camels from BTD are wonderful beasts. Large creatures with much character. Quite enjoyable to paint. Considered medium cavalry under Impetvs, this stand is the second camelry to be fielded in the project. Four more of these beasts lounge in The Lead Pile. Although nearly 50 Impetvs stands have been painted to field two opposing forces, a ton of lead remains to cross the painting desk. Perhaps, more of these will hit the painting desk in 2016? An even better result would see this collection in a game at some point in 2016.
What else is currently on the painting desk? Under construction are two command tents with commanders and entourage for Samurai Battles in 15mm, four battalions of Austrian infantry for the 1799 project, and a few sections of rock wall.
