There are two entries for the Painting Challenge which I haven't presented here by now. The first are eight Bondi for my Saga Vikings:
All eight figures are metal ones from Gripping Beast's nice SAGA range. Some of them look slightly old fascioned and stiff but altogether they are really good.
As all SAGA miniatures I know so far these Bondi have open hands to glue the weapons in. So most of them got spears. But I used steel wire spears rather then the leaden ones provided by Gripping Beast. Absolutely outstanding are their faces which make it easy to bring out some expression.
As usual I painted the figures with Vallejo Model Colours and shaded them with Armypainter Quickshade (Dark Tone). The fine artworks on the shield are decals from Stephen Hales' Little Big Men Studios. For the bases I used my habitual combination of sand, static grass and tufts.
The other entry missing here on the blog is the desperado I painted as "Curtgeld", the entry fee for the challenge. But I'll save this one for my review of the painting challenge I'll post during the next days.
