Progress on my I/2 OKE 1 stand each of 4bw and 3bd - menfat finished before a week off in Scotland where no painting is allowed so the wife tells me!. - I’d forgotten how nice chariot (magiter militium) figures were to paint.
Cheers and enjoy the long weekend - at least in England anyway
Earlier in the week I began the process of soaking some old figures off their bases to begin the process of scrap building two armies with as much as possible coming from existing boneyarded figures - so today I stuck the following to new bases and thus kicked off the scrap build
Then with that done I sat down to paint my current projects and finished off
1xLCm, 1x4Bd, 1x4Bw for the Christian Nubian - the army is now Battle Ready - I can field my preferred 12 element army. Assuming I don't get distracted, this means once these three elements are based I can field the Christian Nubian at Collision Course if there is an odd number of entries. 1x4Pk and 2xPs for the Antigonids 1xCP for the Post Mongol Samurai - this strip has been underway for a ridiculous amount of time and since I started it I have started and completed many other (easier) strips.

Because it has my troops all over it. THAT makes it MINE!!!!
Finally finished my IV/85a Burgundian Ordonnance army. (15mm Mikes Models.) Seems I've been working on this for months now; those flags and such are really slow going. Got the flocking done yesterday.
Here are a few pics. (More up on the FB group.) The "spring wildflowers" were something I saw on a player's army at Recon 2022 last month in Florida. I went right over to the vendors tables to get some.
Below are the 8Lb elements (well, "11Lb", since I'm a disciple of Eric Donaldson's Basing Heresies), flanked by the Artillery.
Below are the Mounted Infantry. (I gotta figure out how to use them; they're such a rarity in DBA.)
Lastly, the whole army arrayed, although I didn't build / paint every possible option.
Finally finished painting my I/2a Old Kingdom Egyptians that’s: LitG/4bdG - split stand so can be deployed as either. 4x4Bw 2x3Bd 2x7Hd 3xPs All chariot miniatures that have been on the lead pile for over 10 years Now just the basing - time for the sand dance. If I can work out how to post a pic I will when done.
