What's exciting here is not just I've finished basing two shaman units for my 15mm fantasy barbarian army, but that it finishes the army expansion project!

Original barbarian army

This was my original barbarians army, painted by IGWARG Fezian and the army was featured on TMP in 2007.

Original barbarian army

It's a beautiful army, built from the Barbarians Boxed Set from Rebel Minis. It was based the 'old' way (1st edition Mighty Armies), with four infantry figures per base. These is one general stand, one shaman stand, two box stands, four warrior stands, and two chariot stands.

Ten stands is a full-size army in Mighty Armies, but I wanted to expand it, and the chance came when another gamer had some figures to sell – a mix of the same figures from several sets.

The new figures were painted for TMP by Blue Table, and I decided to not have them painted to match the old figures, but to present a reinforcing force – another tribe, perhaps.

Barbarian shamans

You've seen the reinforcements over the past few months as each unit type has been featured on TMP, and here are the final two stands: shamans (with bodyguards).

Barbarian shaman

You'll notice the reinforcement stands are based with three figures per stand, which is typical for second-edition Mighty Armies.

Barbarian shaman

For the shaman stands, this means using the shaman figure, plus whatever other figures you care to fill in with.

Barbarian shaman

I used archers and the ultra-rare barbarian spearman as bodyguards.

Barbarian shaman

I based the painted figures on 1" x 2" plastic Mighty Armies bases.

Barbarian shaman

I don't like the 'wedding cake' look, so I contoured the bases with spackle, painted the ground brown, and flocked the bases.

FlexSteel from LITKO was placed on the bottoms, so the bases won't slide around when being transported (my storage boxes are magnet-lined).

Barbarian reinforcements

So here are the finished reinforcements – or you might say, an allied army…

Barbarian reinforcements

The reinforcements comprise two command stands, two shaman stands, one macemen stand, 14 warrior stands, and five chariot stands. (But no bow stands, unless I'm missing some figures somewhere…)

Combined barbarian army

And this is the combined barbarian army. It always feels good to finish a project! (And one of the archers has fallen off his chariot. Where is my superglue?)
