SCott MacPhee finished painting my massive Second Punic War Armies that I will use for my tabletop version of Command & Colors: Ancients.

He did a masterful job. All I can tell you is that the figures look even better in person than they do on the blog.

The project took him 11 months, and he is the fastest painter I have ever seen.

Here they are on his blog:

I'll be posting my own pictures on my blog soon.

Oh how we would love to have him come to a Enfilade convention and share some of his painting skills with us!

Wow! That's a big and beautiful army!

Fantastic army -- anyone having an army like that is casus belli!

One thing I like about McPhee's blog is the detailed close-up photos of the work. It's very instructive on shading and highlighting.

Very smart and impressive.

I have been critical, at times, of the lumpy aesthetic of many modern 28mm figures (not always helped by the fashionable crude painting that accentuates the brutal designs), but those – give or take some 'wide headed' horses – have been done in a very attractive style and look good.

thumbs up Phil

Lovely. Where did you get your Spanish and Numidian figures from?

GDrover Inactive Member26 Aug 2012 3:29 p.m. PST

The Spanish and Numidians are Renegade. They are a touch large (especially the horses), but work well I think.
