Work continues on the Assyrian project as another unit scrambles off the painting desk. Following the recently mustered Chaldean slingers, a nine figure stand of Wargames Foundry Chaldean archers crosses over to the "Painted" side of the Painting Log.
As expected from Foundry's Assyrian range, these archers are excellent sculpts with much facial character. This batch, though, sported distinct mold lines on a few of the figures. Some times, you do not notice that the mold line has not been completely removed until the figure is painted and photographed.
A long line of Assyrian units are either in work or awaiting in the painting queue. The remainder of August may be entirely consumed with painting Assyrians. Perhaps even four or five more units could be called up before Labor Day? One concern is that I am rapidly outstripping my supply chain for bases. I had hoped to hold off ordering until Litko's traditional Labor Day sale but I may not make it. Regardless, I still plan to take advantage of Litko's Labor Day sale.
