Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

Well the Sons of Sek got finished right under the wire. The GT was a blast and I'll have full coverage by this weekend.

Easterling Project Finished... Sort of

In the last week, I finished painting all of the Easterlings that I need among those models I already own. This includes 5 more archers, 5 Kataphrakts, 1 Standard Bearer, 2 Captains on foot and 1 Captain on Horse.

I didn't take pictures of the archers, since they're more of the same as the others I did before.

So what I have painted is:
16 Swordsmen
11 Archers
8 Spearmen
5 Kataphrakts
2 Captains on Foot
1 Captain on Armored Horse
1 Standard Bearer

I still need to paint a Captain on foot to represent my mounted captain in case his horse gets shot, another 4 swordsmen or so for dismounted Kataphrakts and another 5 Kataphrakts.

Unfortunately, I had some problems getting the models I needed from my shop down here in Tucson, so I'm hoping to get them from Imperial Outpost, brought to me by Anthony when he comes down.

So for now, I'm moving on. Next up are Anthony's Uruk-hai. I'm currently 9 days behind schedule in my summer painting plan, I hope to make up two of those days this week, we'll see.

Nice Work Sean, so your not doing The Easterling ring wraith huh? To bad, he is a nice addition to the Easterlings.

I couldn't quite get a feel for him, and I won't be able to get enough games in before the GT to feel comfortable with him.

Well, congrats on getting the Easterlings done. Neat models I must say, and you've done a solid job on them. FWIW I would like to see a full army shot when you've got them out and have a minute, don't have a real strong sense of what a LotR "tournament army" looks like.

And 9 days behind schedule, eh? Good luck catching back up, I personally end up adjusting my paint schedule to meet real life hiccups and personal "I'm not painting tonight, dammit" days ;)

Boss - Thanks. Next weekend, I'll be getting in a bunch of games with them, so I'll be sure to take army pics then!
