Review and Painting - Wargames Foundry 28mm 'Armed Civilians and Slaves'


In this article - part 3 of 3 looking at Wargames Foundry's Ancient Civilian range. This pack is entitled 'Armed Civilians and Slaves', code CIV014, and is available from the Foundry website.
RRP £12.00

The models are strong 28's, the usual for Foundry and are generally nice sculpts. The muscle tone on the models is very nice. Mould lines are also very minimal, meaning there isn't much clean up work to do. The weapons are all cast on the miniatures so appear fairly robust.

Painting - Base Coat

This pack seems like a tale of two halves - we have the rough combat ready models, and the two more domestic/household type slaves. I decided to go with something a little more fancy for the household slaves, giving them white tunics, and one with a pattern.

The addition of hand/leg cuffs on a couple of the models goes well with the 'escaped'' look.

Overall, as long as you are comfortable painting flesh, there isn't much work needed on these models.

Painting - Advanced

As with the models in part 1 and 2 of my Foundry articles, a good wash with a brown/tan really works wonders on models as simple as these. Then pick out and highlight with the original base colour, leading to lighter tones where necessary.

Thanks as always for reading.
