Well, that’s the name I’ve settled on, the People of the Sun. I know I said I was working on lizardmen warriors, and I am, but I ordered another 120…. Anyway, I have been painting other 6mm figures, in this case more Baccus.
These are AIN1, Indian Javelins. I like this model quite a bit, the standard unit in particular is nice. I just went with a simple gold circle for these little dude’s standard, but i could see a good painter going nuts. Next up are some sherden I finished (Baccus AEG7)
Pictures for these guys didn’t come out so hot. These are probably the most detailed figures I’ve done from Bacchus so far. The up torso could pass as clothing or armor, in my case I gave them a bronze look. They are a bit odd in that they appear to be sporting huge mustachios, which given the dearth of information on the sherden, I guess its possible, just seemed a bit weird (I didn’t paint them on my guys). The only issue I had with these guys was a tag of metal on their heads, connected to their swords. On the Baccus page,they just left them. I couldn’t do that, so I went along and cut them all. Not a big deal, although I did break one guy off, who now has a lump of superglue for legs. Just a bit of a PITA.
Here is a comparison shot of dubious value owing to the angle of the photo. As is not shown well here, the Baccus figures scale extremely well with mircoworld. Microworld figures are generally more detailed, and certainly a bit more robust in the case of the elves, but any farther away than 6 inches and they all look the sam
And finally a couple slightly fuzzy photos of Baccus AEG9, Egyptian command. In my case, sun people. I didn’t use all the command pack figures here, the chariot, couple scouts and some horns. I did have one standard bearer who had lost his standard storming out of the molds, so I used some wire and grey stuff to make him a more conventional big giant flag standard. Quite happy with these guys, the chariot model and its horses are of questionable sculpting, but the rest is great. The pharaoh in particular I like. This post is getting a bit long, so I will finish with a few more comparison shots.
I’ve got a few projects nearing completion here (including lizardmen warriors…), and some technical things I wanted to post about, so hopefully there will shortly be more posting.
