Review and Painting - Wargames Foundry 28mm 'Ancient Farmers Defending'

Hi all,

This article is 2 of 3 in a series looking at packs from the Wargames Foundry's 'Ancient Civilians' range. This pack is Civ-011 'Ancient Farmers Defending', models are 28mm, and the rrp is £12.00.

 
In standard Foundry fashion, the models are a strong 28mm foot-to-eye and the models are nice casts, not much flash or mould lines to clean up. The sculpts are well proportioned with nice muscle tones.
 



Painting - Base Coat

Being generic civilians they do not have any fancy clothes or trinkets, a simple tunic and belt in most cases, with the odd model having a pouch. This makes for very easy and fast base coating, and the models could be recommended for novice level painters, whose only difficulty may be with painting the archers strap on the quiver.

 
Painting - Advanced
 

With simple and easy tunics, a nice touch is a light wash for the shade, then to pick out the raised folds with the original colour, highlighting with a simple line on the very edges. This should produce a great result with little difficulty.

 
The weapons and belts are best kept simple, with a lighter colour sufficient enough to stand out from the models main tunic colour.


Thanks as always for reading.

I am currently taking commissions. Work to this quality is priced at £2.50 per model. The six featured here would only cost £15.
