Battlemasters is a fine game, but there really are a lot of miniatures to paint. I think that this is possibly its biggest failing. The miniatures themselves are pretty basic, but that was about right for the time. But there are so many of them! I have painted loads and yet there are loads left to do… Will I ever finish?
Another couple of Battle Masters squads painted up. I tried to do these as quickly as I could without making a complete hash of them. I was amused to note that the previous owner had stuck the flag sticker on upside down. I think we all did that now and again. Despite being forty years old and following the instructions, I still manage to fuck it up building these bloody things. I snapped a trailing bit off a nurgle guy a few weeks ago. I completely fucked up the eagle-on-antenna bit of the Death Watch biker marine, and have glued the wrong bits onto a genestealer hybrid more than once recently. An upside down flag is nothing to me!
It’s been a while since I’ve completed anything I’ve liked enough to post here, but I’m happy enough with this. I think the horse is better than the rider, I enjoyed learning to do the horse. I’ve never been happy with any horses before but this time I looked at a How To Paint Horses from an old White Dwarf and this is the result.
