DeBAKLe 2013 — 15 February 2014 — The Army Painting Progress — Day 5

The Nubians Complete

Day 5 and today was broken up into short painting periods – over lunch, over afternoon coffee, waiting for the baked beans to heat and so on. However, pretty much everything was done before today, all that was needed was the odd light touch-up and dry brush plus add an anachronistic touch for someone on Saturday to be able to say, “hey, Nubians never had [insert favourite anachonism]. Still, I think they look dark and menacing as they stand. I’m also quite happy with the way the dry terrain turned out. Looks sufficiently Sudanish!

My view of the Nubians is also nice and I hope this is the only bit I see of them, although I suspect I will see more of them running away than staying to fight the same day 🙂 Next task is to spend half an hour or so tomorrow looking for my rules. I also need to cut out some terrain pieces and nobble up a camp. And I need to buy my bus ticket so I can tell Dave where to meet me. I’m quite looking forward to DeBAKLe 2013, it will be good to catch up with the Broken Bayonets after the last time (that was 10 years ago IIRC). Lastly, I’ll leave you with a hawk’s eye view of the army.

    Very nice, you have to be pleased with that army after only 5 days work. The bases have turned out great, they look very arid and suitably desert-y. What have you got planned for the camp? Also, any ideas on how they are going to be played at the tournament?

    Oh, and good luck at DeBAKLe — make sure you take photos of your Nubians in glorious action! Look forward to hearing the report from the tournament 😀

      Yeah – my bags are packed and ready to go.

      As for tactics – will think about that on the bus. 🙂
