Mahdist for it!


The arrival of the much forecasted snow meant a nice quiet Sunday keeping warm by painting furiously!  As a result I managed to finish off a little stand of five Mahdists with an additional 3 individually based.  I was playing with the idea of mixing up the plastics with a couple of additional metal miniatures, for no other reason than to add a little variety into the mix.  




On the whole I was pretty pleased with the overall effect, but felt that there were some of the metal miniatures that were just too relaxed to be included on the stand.   As a result these were based individually and I'm sure could be use as dressing or entry markers at a later date.



There are still a couple more stands to get done as part of the '3rd Annual Painting Challenge' and with a bit of luck these should be finished at the weekend - goodness knows I need the points!
