On to El Dorado - Wargames Foundry


The figures featured in todays post would have to be some of the nicest figures I have based. They belong to a good friend and were once based on individual bases, however I asked me to rebase them for the very popular game of Impetvs. The Army is not yet complete and still requires four more units of half pike and a mounted cavalry unit, however they are to represent a Spanish (Conquistador) Colonial Army for the conquest of the Americas. The figures themselves are all Wargames Foundry and come from their excellent, but limited, El Dorado Adventure Characters Range and the Seadogs and Swashbucklers range. Hopefully when the Army is completed we will get them see them in action. Until then please enjoy the images.

The painting and basing is superb and each compliments the other to give a very realistic look.

Woooooow! Masterclass work sir!

Michael Mills said...

Absolutely gorgeous! How about Eureka for some extra variation? I have some of their Conquistadors and they would fit perfectly.

Vinnie said...

Hi Michael I will have to have a look. Are the Eureka the same build and stature of the Foundry? I thought they may be a little on the smaller side?

Beautiful brushwork accentuated by your bases.I love the detail you have lavished on the bases to give them a jungle flavour. Well done.

Vinnie said...

Thanks again lads for the great comments. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have the rest of the army based and up on the site.
