Beja on Camels


In many ways a companion piece to my earlier post in the week, 'Captured Krupp' these fine gentlemen astride their  splendid ships of the desert were another entry for 'The Fourth Annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge'.  Unmistakably, 'Perry Miniatures' in origin they lend a certain gravitas to the collection.


Still using the same palette that was trialled back with the earlier post, 'So what do you know about camels?'  (If it's not broke, don't fix fit, as the saying goes!)  With only days remaining until the end of the challenge, there is a palpable sense of urgency as I look at what still needs to be finished off before the deadline - and then there is trying to get my head around running a Lizardman Team!
