Another Hectic Week Rebasing - HYW Impetvs


Well it has been a big few days rebasing a collection of Perry Miniatures HYW English and French from WAB to Impetvs. The hardest, most time consuming and messiest part however is taking them off the old bases. The remainder of the job is easy. However I think I may have over done it on the flowers this time, as they do seem a little too bright. 


The collection is unfortunately not mine and I have rebased them for a good friend who is very keen to have a go at either Basic Impetvs or the real deal sometime soon. He has another large army already based as well as a Scottish Army hidden away in the cupboard that will have to be dusted off for a game sooner than later I hope. So watch this space.

Wonderful job! Don't worry about the flowers; They compliment (rather than overwhelm) the brights on the figures particularly the banners and look stunning.

Very nice work with the basing. The painting work is fantastic, too.

The new bases are beautiful! Depending on what type of glue was used, if you soak the old bases in water up to the shoes the figures can be more easily removed.

Wonderful!! This just reinforces why Impetus is the best basing around.

Thanks for the great comments everyone I am encouraged by your responses. I have a mountain of other figures to rebase over the next couple of months so these guys were just the tip of the iceberg as to say.

You have done a great job on the basing Nathan, which enhance the figures and tie them together as an army.
