Ion Age Retained Knights

Been a while and only a few spam casino comments to delete over all those months. Anyway, I painted something for myself at last so here it is. Three Alternative Armies Ion Age retained knights from their 28mm range.



Really enjoyed painting these and a great bit of old school goodness. I remember when these were first released back in the very early 90's. Liked them back then but never got any. Picked these and a bunch more up on Ebay a few years back and then of course discovered that Alternative were still around and that the range was still in production. Thankfully I still got a bargain so at least I didn't over pay for my Ebay finds.

I'd like to try and maintain focus on these for now. Got two more prepped and ready to start. If I can get some more done after that that would be fantastic but I am eyeing up other things in my lead pile so we'll see.

    1. They're really nice models and have aged pretty well in general. Well worth picking some up. :D

  2. They look just perfect, and I mean just that, perfect adequation between models and paintjob, the hair colour was just the right choice to make.
    It's an absolute pleasure to see your progress on those.

    1. Thanks. The hair colour was a last minute choice. I was going to do it brown but decided just before cracking open the paint that it needed to be something different. I was a bit concerned she'd look like Lisa Lampanelli but once it was highlighted it worked fine.

  3. I still have the female figure in the lead pile from when I bought her in the 80's. This is really a kick up the arse to get her finished.

    1. Cheers :) I can only recommend you do it! 16th November AA are putting a big offer/sale thing on so worth checking the site out then in case they have any deals on the 28mm stuff.
