In the Impetus Dark Age Irish list, the Irish can have Viking allies. As I have a 500 point Viking army, this means I can field a 1000 point combined army. I know that someday I will, just to see the specticle!
|My last 14 figures (whew)|
I've worked on the Irish for seven months or so, and this is the first painting I've done in many years. So there is a real difference between the first figures and the last. My earlier figures appear muddier (I was using one wash at the time -- I changed to a color specific wash per item over time). Also, I believe my detailing improved over time, certainly I accomplished more with the shields as I put in more time painting. I will use the changes over time to visually show class. There are three classes of soldier for the Irish in the Impetus Dark Irish list -- kern, bonnacht, and nobiles. I will make the kerns the least colorful and muddiest looking units, the nobiles will be the most colorful and cleanly detailed figures, and the bonnachts will be in the middle.
|The rear row of figures are older paint jobs, and are muddier in appearance|
|There javelinmen also show the change in appearance over time|
|Here the more recent figure is on the left.|
|Here the more recent figure is on the right (I know -- just like some rules I play. Hi, Low, Left, Right . . . )|
|IMO, these standard bearers really show a difference. I'll use this to visually show class.|
