Having built Amazons, Persians, and Shock Troopers, I can concur with that assessment of just how easy it is to build WF figures, even at my advancing age where my visual acuity and hand/eye coordination is not what it used to be!
First your preaching to the (getting oldER) choir. It can be so frustrating cant it?
Though I have built none of the above, I have a true love of WGF Zulus, as I mentioned in other threads have completed 60 (3 - 20 fig regt) and another full box yet to begin. I rarely get to my Colonial British for the very reasons *Luo menitioned above.
"When" I do get around to working on the hobby these days its on my D A Fantasy Project. I use a mix of Viking and Saxon, armored and unarmored. I have always had a 'love/hate' feeling towards chainmail. I 'love' the look when I can get it just right (now days, Im happy with pretty good), but I "hate" trying to get that lite touch, that makes all the difference.
Those look really great. I think you did a bang up job on those guys. You will hear me say this a lot. Please share more when/ if you get the chance. I always love to see what others are doing with their miniatures and looking for ideas to 'borrow'.
