NEANDERTHALS


My Tusk project is coming along very well, I have taken yet another step towards the finish line, my Neanderthals are now complete (minus basing), a group of four hunters, covered in animal furs and armed with sticks and stones ! I think they turned out nice, very natural looking and a bit grubby, I tried to vary the brown tones a bit just for variety and I must admit that I am craving to paint something way more colourful, but, I am glad there done.



Again these miniatures are in 15mm and are from Archeson Creations, great sculpts with good detail, making them very easy to paint, these guys are sculpted a little bigger and broader than a man would normally be, which is correct historically, I am hoping that Richard(sculptor) will sculpt more Neanderthals, and some Cro Magnon man, there really hasn't been any new releases in 15mm since about June I think, But there is talk of some releases either at christmas or early next year! we shall see.

Very nice mate. I know what you mean about painting mostly brown my MacReady fig was like that.

I was gonna ask what size they where as they look really good figs for 15mm.
