From ClintB: 10mm Mahdists (58 points)


From Clint:
Here are 57 10mm Pendraken Fuzzy Wuzzy's. Three figures to a 20mm by 20mm square base  ready to use with the "Patrols In the Sudan" rules. 
All figure have been painted in a simple 2 tone manner as befits miniatures of this scale where you are relying on the mass of figures as opposed to the detail. I have only put one flag with this group a simple printed paper flag as I wanted the troops to look like one mass as opposed to several tribes or groupings.

I have also kept the bases very simple using just sand, paint and static grass in small patches. being mostly desert and scrubland I did not want to over detail the bases. This is only the start of my Mahdist army and by using 10mm figures I hope to highlight the difference in numbers between the thin Khaki Line and the Native forces.
Fabulous work Clint! I really like the horde effect these 10mm troops provide (with the added bonus in that they don't take up an acre on the tabletop).

These Mahdists will give Clint 58 points. Great job!

  6. Nice looking irregulars, Clint. I'm starting to re-base most of my 28mm stuff like this - three or four figs to a base. Best, Dean

  7. I do like the look of these, I think the mass effect will work well and hoping to see more in the coming months

  9. Thanks chaps. You will no doubt realise that I like 10mm figures. Easy to store, cheap to buy and simple to transport. Which for me is three reasons to like the scale. As ever your comments are pushing me on. And I hope to get the Ansar done before the end on the challenge.
