Review and Painting - Wargames Foundry 28mm 'Ancient Revolting Civilians'
In this article I will be taking a look at CIV-016 'Ancient Revolting Civilians', part of the 'Ancient Civilians Collection' by Wargames Foundry, rrp. £12.00
As is usual with Wargames Foundry the models are a 'strong' 28mm. Even foot-to-eye level is closer to 30mm. The sculpts are solid, the models look and feel like good quality.
Wargames Foundry always seem a tab expensive when compared with other historical manufacturers, but usually feel worth it once you open the pack. The only reservation I have with this pack is that it doesn't include the weapons for two of the models. For an avid gamer (with an extensive 'bits box'), this isn't a problem, but it could be annoying if you don't have spare weapons on hand.
Painting - Base Coat
I really enjoyed the simplicity of these models and would recommend them for any level of painting skill. Aside from skin and a simple tunic, the only small details are belts and pouches.
Painting - Advanced
Thanks to the good sculpts, these models shade/highlight very easily. The tunics are good enough that even a light wash would suffice for shade.
Thanks for reading.
These models are part of a current commission. I will be painting the rest and featuring them in the same style over the next few days. Price for commission: £15. (6x £2.50)
