28mm Middle Eastern Archers

These have been sitting around for a while; I’ve got 8 of them, and only 4 are finished. I’d planned on putting up all of them in a single post, but I had just finished these when I heard that Saga version 2 was coming out and only the Dark Ages book was going to be released. As a result these got put on the back burner and my Vikings/Anglo-Danes got a fresh look in. As such these have been sitting around for ages, waiting for me to paint them up and post.

I’ve got a little bit of purple on each miniature to match with the other unit I’ve painted thus far in this force: 4 Hearthguard Camelry. I don’t think it’s historical, but it will serve to tie them all together and give them a little bit of cohesion. As they are the palette is a bit all over the shop. Colours next and then some 360′ pictures of each individual guy.
