From IannickM: 28mm Casualty Stand of Biblical Proportions (20 points)



From Iannick:
Here is my last submission, a small diorama I call 'Feast of vultures", with dead Canaanite and Egyptian soldiers surrounded by vultures.
The vultures are from Foundry and were sent as freebies with my Shasu Bedouins. Not wanting free stuff to go to waste I figured I had to find a way to include these animals in my biblical project. Mostly it's for the looks but maybe I could use them as a marker of some kind.
Unfortunately this is my last submission; I was literally one evening away from finishing a 24 Canaanite spearmen unit, so very close, damn basing! I take solace in the fact that the contest made me paint that unit in 7 days which is a record for me.
A big thanks to you, it was my first time participating in the contest and it was a lot of fun. Kudos for not losing your sanity along the way... ;-) 

If vultures eating corpses can be beautiful then this is the bee's knees. Excellent work Iannick! I really have to see if I can get a couple of these as they're wonderful sculpts and this is a great purpose for them.

This grisly vignette will give Iannick 20 points. Thanks for participating and I look forward to seeing your Canaanite army grow over on your blog in the coming months.

    Nice work Iannick - pity about not being able to finish that unit in time :(

    Chris, I see Ray beat me to it; my Canaan army already has a couple of units and chariots, all on my blog. The spearmen I could not finish in time should be posted tomorrow.

  6. Vultures are icky in real life but so lovely in this fine vignette, a true "glut" of vultures.
    A great (and tasty) finish to your Challenge. Bravo.
