The last unit that I needed to finish painting for my 50-point Damiano Free Company army was the second unit of cavalry...and here it is. The only difference between these guys and my other cav unit is that their shields are blue. Big deal. Again, nice models, and they hit like Mac trucks during games.
It's been a long haul, but the Free Company list is finally done. As you can see...the theme here is metal-clad infantry with camo 'jacks. I'm satisfied with the final result. These mercs turned out to be the battle-ready veterans I was hopoing for. Sure, they skew more towards utility than fashion and flair, but that means they're ready to go about the business of slogging through the mud, and then taking and holding the battlefield. What more could you ask from a mercenary force?
This has been a fun project, but I'm happy it's finally over. Now I have a couple of other things coming onto the table. First, I have a Bart/Galleon list I'd like to paint up, and second, I'm playing Legion during this season's Journeyman League...so I've got plenty of models to paint for hobby points in that competition.
'Til next time.
