Just finished this formation of Numidians. Or at least, what the Scholtz (Berliner Zinnfiguren) designer thought Numidians looked like. The officer is from another editor.

A bit more about them on my blog:

Beautifully done!!! Hats off from EGC. I do not do flats, but they have a charm of their own.

Lovely work and I know this is heresy (somewhat ;-) but have you applied the same techniques to round figures? I think we see correct shading in larger scales but often times we see highlights on 28mm figures that is not as accurate as it could be. In other words, the source of light that should cause the figure to be highlighted and shaded in certain areas is ignored. All too often (and I am guilty of this myself), all high points are highlighted the same no matter where the source of "light" should be coming from….

OMG! Wow! and any other positive exclamation! You did a fantastic job!

Thanks very much, guys !

About the shading, ancientsgamer. I don't paint many 28mm rounds these days, but no – I don't think the same shading techniques translate directly to rounds because the flat figures have only one (imaginary) light source.

Wow, like the "Numidians". Can't fault the excellent paint job.

Thanks again, everyone. It's gratifying to see other flat figure enthusiasts here.

Great Looking as always. Apparently Scholtz and Ochel both thought that Numidians were horsearchers. Paul

Not a Flat… but good lucking also…
