I can hardly recall what the wife and I painted, I remember painting a plaid like that a couple years ago, but I don't want to take credit for that. I think mine was not nearly so well-done. Real nice plaid lines though. I'm fairly certain I got my name on mine.

So here's the first warband stand for the Army of Bill:

Warband stand #1

The Basing

As before, I'm adapting WAB-sized based to DBx unit sizes. Here you can see the movement tray a bit better:

Showing the movement tray

The tray is simply a Litko heavy wooden base of the correct size, with a rubbery "flex steel" sheet of the same size laid down on top. Then I took craft sticks (i.e., Popsicle sticks) - which, conveniently, are 10mm wide - and used them (painted and flocked) as spacers. Since this is a warband, I wanted to keep the figures from forming a straight line.

Figure #1

Virtualscratchbuilder's warrior with spear

Here's the warrior from Personal logo Virtualscratchbuilder Supporting Member of TMP Fezian. And here's a better look at his shield:

And, as you can see, he follows directions well - his name is signed on the back!

The signature of excellence

Figure #2

Bald guy

Here's another of my favorites - enough of those young studs on the battlefield, let's see the old bald guys!

There's no name on this one, so will the artist please identify himself?

Figure #3

Saflex's warrior

Here's a swordsman from Saflex Inactive Member. This one came pre-based, with the artist's name on the bottom*:

* Which means he doesn't stick magnetically to the movement tray, so I have to keep a special eye on him!

Thanks, guys!
