or to put it simple whats next....

At the moment my space is a bit limited so i have to put my arab village on a hold for a couple of weeks :( but this is the perfect moment to try to finish one of the mountain of projects that i started and now are just laying on the shell for months and months … waiting for some paint. :-D
now i thought it would be a nice idea if you guys tell me what to do next and i promise that i will focus on the chosen subject and update it at least weekly untill its finished. This way im forcing myself in really finishing someting before i start another 20 projects :-D :-D :-D :-D

So whats it gonna be guys ?

Laterrrrrrrr

Hi dykio
We all share similar dilemmas.
To me the choice is clear. Do Alexander’s hedonists first. I may make an exception if you promise to convert the DAK motorcycles to Hell’s Angels or similar (you can leave the Wehrmachtshelm ;-)
Cheers

Hi dykio,
Michael Robert is unsure. :mrgreen: :wave:
Alexander's army or Hell's Angles?

So use the DAK set, please.
They can do jump throu burning tires. :xd:
Drive on two wheels with the third in the air. :drool:
Make drifts. :-D
Stay and make dust smoke with the rear wheel. 8)
Or a very common.
Fill up with petrol, sevice or simply let the engines cool down scene.
Chek the trip on the map discussing situation.

:yeah:

Hello Dykio!
Interesting and funny idea to provoke a decision! So it seems we will see a huge Macedonian army at Arnhem in June marching through an Arab village...

Hi guys,

First of al thanks for al the support and the votes :yeah:

and… well the poll said it all, Alexander beat the DAK :-D .
This also means that instead of 16 figures now i have to paint 84! figures. Thanks a lot guys :-D

As mentioned this project was on the shell and luckily for me i already started this one some time ago. So this is the situation now :

the whole lot :

Image

as you can see the horses are already finished just some touching up to do...

Image

I also had already primed the rest en replaced the sarissa of the phalanx and some of them are already almost finished…..but hapilly for me there is still a lot of work left :-D :-D :-D

Image

So lets see how far i can get this week

Laterrrrr

ps @moderator(s) is it possible to chance the topic to Alexander's Macedonian Army?

I'm one of those people who voted for the Macedonians. Sorry for the increased workload - but I'm really looking forward to see the phalanx!

I didn't vote, but undoubtedly my vote would have gone to the Macedonians. Go for them, dykio, they are few and cowards...well, not as few nor so cowards, hahaha. :lol:

Hi guys,

Wel i promised to post my progress every week so here we go again…

I must say that doing this "project" under pressure (wel not that much :-D ) does keep me focused on this subject and even better i didnt start project number 425,35 (yet :-D )

but back to were its all about pictures pictures pictures

I finished the Greek Hoplites (pictures are just some shots with my phone but i will make better when the whole lot is finished….

Image

Image

And started with the next bunch of 12

stage 1 was putting the primer on them and then the skin tone.

Image

so 12 finished and just 72 (pfff :-D ) to go....

First time i have viewed this topic,and i cannot see or understand how i missed it. :mrgreen: It`s an aged thing of BB remembering it.
Ancient armies can get rather prickly for fingers,however these figures look soft and fine. i love the painting style dykio. :thumbup:
:coffee: Bows strings are cool, but i`d like to see arrows in mid flight too. BB

Hmm .... the brush looks good and well-used! I'm also at a loss what could have gone wrong! :eh: :eh: :eh:

Great project! My memory is terrible and I have asked this before I think, but that Asterix-village of yours ... how is it going?
