More pictures and historical meanderings on my Just Add Water blog here:

Finally the first unit of Goths is ready after their stint in the vanishing queue waiting and giving the glass a week to go off before matting down. It takes time but it's worth it just to know that any speckling/frosting is as minimal as possible.

Unlike their Early Byzantine enemies it has taken a wee bit more time to get the unit finished due to the none uniform appearance. I really love painting up Bill's sculpts – they are a bit like Crusader miniatures in that there is plenty of surface area to play around with.

Very impressive unit, so much to like here. Great mix of colours and beautifully done bases to really finish off a professional paint job. Superlative work Atheling, even the banner has a real sense of movement.

They are really nice. Impressive unit coming across the table at one.

These are museum quality pieces.

They all look excellent including the bases

Shouldn't "Gothics" be dressed in all black?

SWEET looking figures!

Great looking unit – thanks for sharing!

Wow. Great work.
I like your artistic take on the 'plain' shields.

Thanks you guys, as usual all very much appreciated :)

I like your artistic take on the 'plain' shields.

Funnily enough you are not the first to point that out. I *might* do the next unit freehand. It's very time dependent so we shall have to see :)
