4 command stands for my Later Hungarian army command and with this, my Later Hungarian army is finished! All 15mm Essex figs. King Corvinus turned out quite nicely, thanks in large part to the great sculpting.
My Later Hungarian army started with great promise, only to go cold out of the gate. Our Field of Glory group is small and we've been unable to add any new players for some time. With a Maurice campaign and Saga under way, it's a rare weekend that we get together for Field of Glory. I'm quite jealous of those of you who get together for weekly games!
I paint a lot of figures but I've avoided becoming a collector. When the stacks of armies in my closet gets too high, I'm compelled to move 1 or 2 out. If I can't get these fellows onto a tabletop, they'll be off to the market as well. I'm fairly careful about choosing my projects so I have to ask, what was I thinking when I decided to paint up the Later Hungarians for a 2nd time? That's right, I got a bit caught up in redoing them in a darker style. They are different than my first version but not all that different. Ah well...
The Inevitable Spark posted on the science of painting horses some months ago. In his post, he shared a link to the Guide to Horse Colors and Patterns. I have books on horse colors but it's hard to put them to use with a wet paintbrush. I did some digging and found the Guide in poster form HERE. I've had it up on the wall next to my painting table for months now and it's a great reference. THANKS Jonathan!
