Yesterday I resumed painting some medieval archers with longbows which I had initially begun painting approximately six months ago. Last summer I started work on an English army of the Hundred Years War for the game De Bellis Antiquitatis using the beautiful 15mm-scale HYW range by Corvus Belli. I completed my first element for the army, a base of two wild Irish kerns that would serve as my Psiloi, just before my wedding on August 20, 2008. In the fall I managed to paint another three elements (spearmen, crossbowmen, and a bombard) as well as priming the aforementioned archers and giving their skin its first coat of color. But that was all until I finally got back to it yesterday afternoon. I did some more painting today and will hopefully be getting photos up soon.
After this batch of archers is complete, this is what I will still have left to paint for my Hundred Years War English army:
3 mounted command
4 dismounted command
6 mounted men-at-arms
8 dismounted men-at-arms
18 archers with longbows
Camp and camp followers
I think I should be able to finish tomorrow the 4 archers that I’m currently painting and so may start prepping the billmen tonight, but even if not they should be ready to go by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.
