Stunning!!!

Fabulous freehand artwork on the shields Neldoreth.
Very tough on Thargor, because that entry is a really good group too. But up against such a bravura display of miniatures freehand, it's a tough assignment...

Excellent entry Thargor, a lot of character in those figs, kudos! Nice non-metallic metal! It's awesome that we both did non-metallic metal in this round Smiley

Thanks to all for the positive feedback, it's appreciated!

Neldoreth, I take my hat off to you sir.  A superbly painted entry.

My minis are all by Freebooter Miniatures from their Freebooter's Fate range.  The 2 on the left are from their Legends set, the figure on the far right is an old mini called Lobo and the "Not Sean Connery from Highlander" and the generic porter are from their Mercenary box set.

They look very legit. That fanged face is really something. I think that historians agree at this point that the Greek sense of color was pretty garish (architecture, statuary, etc). I can really see these designs on the ancient battlefield.

The detailing and color on the fourth Freebooter is particularly impressive, great job!
