Flintloque Regiment Lowland Dwarves - part nine

I've enjoyed the challenge of painting up these Flintloque Dwarves and now the little project is nearing completion.

I was recently asked "Why eight miniatures, why not more?"

I'm not sure - I think that over the years eight has become my 'go-to' number of miniatures to work on in one sitting..... I know I have done more and less figures, but it always comes back to eight - in fact I would prefer to paint up two blocks of eight than a single batch of sixteen - strange I know but never-the-less a fact. I wonder if I am alone in this?

Back to the metal miniatures and as you can see the main change has been the beards. I decided to vary the colours and not have ALL the Dwarves with the same colour beard choice. In addition I have 'tidied-up' the Shako's and painted the backpacks, again in a variety of different colours.

Hopefully I can get these little heroes finished soon, very soon. In the meantime Stay safe.

Keep Calm and Carry On Modelling.

Hi Tony,

I'm enjoying watching these unfold. I've found eight figures is about my happy medium when painting groups too. More can feel like a drag and less like I'm not making so much progress into the lead/plastic pile! Does vary though. Thanks for the updates.

All the best,
