They look really nice. How long did the project take? I can't paint 15mm anymore due to weak eyes. Have fun playing with them!

Just in – photos from our friends at Blue Table Painting of the Mighty Armies barbarian army they just finished for us.


Or you can see the original, larger photos on their Flicker site.


When you send a project to Blue Table Painting, they have you fill out a form to specify what you want done. Here I what I wrote back then:

These are fantasy Vikings. 15mm scale.

Skin color: white/fair (Scandinavian)
Hair color: Blonde, white mix
Clothes: gray or brown; robes black with brown trim
Weapons: dark hilts, rusty steel
Helmets: rusty steel
Fur hats: white
Wood (bows, poles): dark brown
Bags/straps: Brown and gray
Boots: dark brown
Buckles: brass
Scabbards: dark brown
Chainmail: rusty steel

1. Barbarian Chariots (10) Red chariots. Wheels black. Paint head on chariot pole brass. Reindeer: brown with white bellies, dark eyes, dark muzzles, brown legs, gray hooves, dark horns, brown leather straps with brass.

2. Barbarian Archers (14) - Quiver: white. Arrows: red (feathers). Paint sword as in scabbard.

3. Barbarian Warriors (47) - Shields brown on inside, black on outside, with Viking horned helmet emblem in red.

4. Command (6) - Kings with axes: give one gold trim, the other silver trim. Same with standards: one set of horns gold, one set silver. Shaman's pole is natural stick with lichen on top. Flag for the pole: red with golden Viking horned helmet emblem.

These figures are from the barbarians boxed set for Mighty Armies, available these days from Rebel Minis. As their website says:

The Barbarian Horde is led by a General with his loyal bodyguard and includes a Shaman, warriors, archers and chariots, providing you with innumerable tactical options in war.

I also told them:

Assemble wheels to chariots. Assemble heads on reindeer. No basing required.

Here is the breakdown of the cost for this project:


The completed figures will be shipped to TMP soon, and I look forward to basing them up!
