Bactrian Greeks

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Bactrian Greeks

Post by Adam Hayes » Thu Aug 25, 2016 1:06 pm

I am trying to develop some sort of focus and concentrate on getting one project on its way to completion (I realise no army is ever really "finished".) See my pathetic efforts on the blog:

Knuckling Down To It

Now that I come to think of it blogging progress is probably another displacement activity when I should be painting and basing to get these fellas on the tabletop. Doh!

I don't know why I come here. I can stay at home for this sort of abuse!

Another group of new units for my Bactrian Greek army.

Just need a couple of elephants and some generals and there will be enough for me to command on the tabletop (poor little blighters!)
