In fact, I'm calling this the Antithesid army under their commander Antithesis II (again, fictional).
I decided to give these a slightly more 'eastern' look, and a blue theme for helmets and tunics, in opposition to the 'Macadamian' units which have a red theme.
Quite a number of units in this collection have a casualty figure... useful as markers, or to simply scatter around the table for effect.
Amongst all the current news, with events being cancelled left, right and Chelsea (literally), I'm delighted to be able to attend a concert at Birmingham Symphony Hall this evening... Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, and Saint Saen's Organ Symphony. These have been 2 of my favourite classical works since I was about 10, courtesy of my parents who introduced me to classical music all those years ago. I am very much looking forward to it.
Next week, I'm away on business for Monday-Tuesday, but might get some painting in towards the end of the week. And next weekend, viruses permitting, Steve and I have a game booked. We're staying flexible, and whilst it's not a gathering of 500 people, there may be 500 figures on the table... it will take quite some time to wash all those little hands.
On a serious note, to all my wargaming pals around the globe, stay safe and healthy. All the very best...
