Aztec Eagle Knight Captain

With the advent of a painting competition on single character/leader models for WAB I decided to do an Aztec Eagle Knight Captain,because I plan on doing an Aztec army in the future.
The model is from Wargames Foundry excellent Aztec range(the best I believe).It's a converted Eagle knight with some feathers added to the shield and a back banner brace modeled on to hold the banner.This is done to distinguish him from the other warriors as a captain and leader.
This project is a personal one (building the army)and therefore no rush.This means I'll put my best foot forward with these guys.All my models are personal of course because they are just for me,but what I mean is I'm doing this army to high standard and without a goal of playing it unless an opportunity presents itself.(similar to my AWI material)
These Aztecs from Foundry are simply awesome and are without a doubt in the top 3 in terms of quality sculpts coming out of Foundry and are an absolute painters dream.
It's quite a lot of fun stepping out of the box and exploring colors not often used and I'm looking forward to further experiments with the range.:-)

Lukka Pirates

Here is my latest edition in the form a unit of allied Lukka Pirates(Sea Peoples) to support my Trojans.These guys were fun to paint up and I quite like the colorful nature of the unit.As with the other Trojans I continued with the army painter experiment.I tried adding a bit more army painter then last time to help raise the detail and added a few quick highlights to further define areas.I'm happy with skin tones here more then the other units. :) Again,most of the shield work is hand painted except the bronze studs with have army painter applied.
Another nice thing,is I'm happy I based up units wide when I heard the rumor WAB2 was going that direction and it appears that is the case.
Even painting at a pretty easy pace I'm surprised and happy how quick things are coming along and with some decent results for gaming.:-)
Next up for Trojans are....Chariots!The staple highlight units of the period in question.I'm looking forward to seeing how they turn out. :)

How do you like your blogs

I prefer a modeler to have just one blog with labels for all the different subjects they work on as I find this easier then jumping around blogs to see everything they do.
I also find it's easier for myself as well in posting my material.
I understand why folks like to separate their blogs by subjects as I've been tempted myself,but going back to what I said I like viewing one blog with labels as it's easier and with this in mind I went with just one blog.It's just easier for both in my view.
What is your opinion?


Servant of Decay

To those who also enjoy this stuff,here is my Chaos Lord Korpus the Corrupted that I did a while back.It's probably my favorite miniature GW ever did,I hope you like my take on it.:-)
