What to do when no delivery? or the taxman cometh!

Hi gents,
A rare occurrence here at the Anderson Collection no delivery today so I did what had to be done to fulfil the need for new figures, I got the brushes out.I started these Templar's from scratch this morning around 8:00am painted based and photo done by 2:00pm not to bad me thinks!
Black tree Knight.
Wire lances with pennons made from masking tape.
The figures are big but I like them.
Object of this visit is for tax purposes.
Wheres the livestock?
Templar's painted this morning
Takes me back to when I did these in 15mm
Duty now paid.
This Foundry Knight also painted this morning delivers the late payment penalty.
Lot of new toys arriving next week so more then.
Best wishes
Willie

  1. Those are some fancy knights and of course taxes have to be collected by every means necessary!

  2. Really nice work, Sir. The knight with his head cocked to his left, holding his shield at an angle, is a star actor in your W.A. Productions! I sense that the some of the Lamb-Tax collected may be used for chops latter in the day.

  10. That is some speed painting and the results are superb. The masking tape idea works well.

  11. Thanks for all the comments! These were pretty easy to paint but I should really calm down I am sure I would get better results!!

    Pat,
    I have used the masking tape for years it bends really well and gives that flowing in the wind effect.
