Visions of Janis Hunyadi, Matthias Corvinus and Pál Kinizsi floated around my head as I finally started work on the Hungarians. I had glued them to bases in Singapore and the lady had then carried them back to Oz for me to work on here.
There was only two riders dislodged and a couple of bent lances from that travel experience along with the usual questions at security. The picture to the right shows the troops laid out on the painting table ready to start the basing process off.
The next step was to glue sand and other scatter material to the bases preparatory to undercoating the figures. I wanted to get the sand down on Friday (today) and then allow a good 12 hours for the bases to dry out before undercoating.
Just looking at the painting job that will be necessary, I don’t think I should have based the knights before painting but rather after painting. Anyway, it’s too late to worry about that know. The knights will be annoying to paint but we shall manage.
The photo to the left shows the army after the sand was stuck to the bases.
The next step in this process is to spray undercoat all the figures and I will need to pay special attention to get paint on the undersides of figures.
In the meantime let me leave you with a close-up of what will become my favourite element in this army – the warband!!
