Newline Sea Peoples - WIP

These were graciously sent to me a couple of years ago by a TMPer who said he'd never get around to painting them. Plan to use them as a small unit in Hail Caesar some day. Here they are with the usual Minwax Tudor Satin staining.
This is how they looked with a basic block paint job prior to the staining.The well-defined sculpting, as well as the poses, really facilitates painting. They aren't bad figures, and would go well enough with Foundry.
As it may be somewhat evident, most of my current (and future?) projects are simple ones (Minwax stain over a basic paint job). Also, the figures used are ones that are already sitting around unpainted. My main goal for 2014 is to host games - Hail Caesar and Black Powder mostly - using existing figures. Thanks again for visiting, and I hope you like the posts - I certainly enjoy seeing all of your blog posts, and look forward to seeing all of your 2014 projects coming to fruition.
