In a bid to clear up the confused mess that is my painting queue, these 'Perry Miniatures' Camel Corps are finally completed! The camels, lovingly named Dune, Sandy and Gobi by the Saintly Mrs. Awdry back in May 2011 were one of last year's Salute purchases and are now finally reunited with their riders.
As you can see when I started these last year I was favouring the lipped bases, but now a little older, if not necessarily wiser, I've decided to rebase them using a more standard 50mm x 25mm MDF base (once of course I'd finished dusting them!). Very rewarding to work with, the 'Perry' sculpts have plenty of detail to keep your brush happy and, as always, I find myself rueing the decision not to have completed them sooner.
As a brief aside the 'recipe' for the camels can be found here in an earlier post.
