Cancon 2013 DBA – Koguryo Koreans – 11 – Finished

2013-01-15 00.31.52 Well, all except for the varnishing, maybe some shield patterns, a proper Koguryo standard and the camp – but finished enough to take to the tabletop at Cancon 2013. The Alain Touller Figurines look the business.

I finished the Light Horse last night (they’re the blokes on the right). It was a surreal experience as I was medicated for a tooth extraction and for a gout attack. The warnings “this may cause drowsiness” were correct.

Still, the medications dulled the pain enough to paint and flock although my hands were kind of shaking a little.

The Light Horse where finished continuing the white theme with bows of curved bone. I’m happy enough with the final appearance now. Let me introduce the troops.

2013-01-15 00.26.07 The bows and crossbows on the left, the Psiloi (or light infantry) on the right.The bows are there to strike fear in any knights the opposition may have.

The Psiloi are there for a bit of rough ground coverage and to ensure that the opposition has to be careful about them rushing around the back of his army and causing problems.

2013-01-15 00.27.28 The close order infantry, in this case, known as Spears. These are solid reliable troops that are quite effective in holding down part of the battle line.They are not battle winners as such but are solid enough to stand against most things and opponent can throw at them.
2013-01-15 00.28.27 The general (on the left), part of the cataphracts which provide the main strike force. These troops are treated similarly to knights in DBA and are therefore the game winners if used properly.They will try and avoid enemy bows and light horse whilst targeting infantry and cavalry.
2013-01-15 00.29.06 The Light Horse – used for quick manoeuvring and to work the flanks. Also useful against opposition Light Troops and will cause some consternation to opponents with Knights.

Right – that’s the Koreans done. Next cab off the rank is some serious painting of the Later Hungarians.

    Mate,

    They look great – can’t wait to see the Hungarians.
    I’m pushing on with painting a 1000 point Gerbirgsjaeger force for Bolt action.
    They are not for Cancon as I decided to play in the WRG tourney. I’m taking a 1500 point Late British Peninsular force borrowed from my mate who lives in Canberra so no train smash salad heading my way (I hope).
    The Gerbirgsjaegers are a nice little late war force for use at the local club and amongst strays that may pop over.

    Next off my table is a 28mm Impetus force of Normans then the plan is to finish off a large 15mm Confederate force that has been I the back burner for way too many years. If only I had the drive of Chris Kendrick (and 1/2 his painting skills).

    Get those Hungarians painted. Looking forward to seeing them in the flesh.
    Cheers
    Dave
