Well not a horde just yet, but 15, I can tell you painting 15 28mm figures is quite a project, When I do napoleoincs I only paint 6 at a time, so 15 is is alot. I had to paint the shields last night since the spears had to be glued to the soldiers, and that takes hours, so I did the shields last night, and painted the figures today, I started to paint at 8 in the moring and finished the painting at 6 in the evening. With only a break for an hour and a half when I went shopping for my grandma. So thats 8 and a half hours of painting, I'm not sure I can keep that gonig for a week. I wanted to paint a unit over two days, thats fine with the romans, since they are only 20 strong, but these are 30 strong, that means 15 at a time. Thats is hard work. And that was with the shields done the day before, with shelds that another hour atleast of work.
But the resualt is hard to argue with. I did these alot more conservative then my romans, basicly the only color the figures have is a few of the shields. I put the coolest shields up front, I really like the red and black one. No color on the figures, it's all white and brown, cloth is white, the hairs on the helments are white, I did think about painting the leather border on the chainmail colorfull, I was planing on each unit, having a uniqe color. But since I went all out on the romans, I guess these can be more low down. So I did the learthe border in natural leagther.
