Months ago I laid out my plan for expanding my SAGA warband into an Oathmark army. Deciding how grow my multiples-of-four units up to multiples of five, I settled on the obvious answer: buy more Oathmark Human Infantry! I remembered how much I enjoyed assembling and painting the first box and wanted to do it again.
I really adore these sculpts. They are just the well-disciplined, miserable sods I look for in a line infantry unit. Thanks to a happy accident during assembly, my favorite one looks a little punch drunk.
I tend to experiment when painting, and rarely record “recipes,” or stick to them when I do. Matching choices I made a couple years ago for a cohesive look has become a recurring challenge for me this year. How did I do this time?
These 20 spearmen were painted in three separate batches with months or years in between. The latest batch benefits from all the speed painting tricks I’ve picked up.
I can’t wait to square these boys off against whatever my buddy Comrade Patrick has in store.
