Front rank shields are coffin lids, like in Breugel's painting
Say, what are those unpainted fellows in the background...
And the inspiration from Breugel's Triumph of Death.
Got my first casts for review today of the 9 figures currently sculpted for my upcoming Triumph of Death 28mm line of models. Couldn't help myself to quickly get some paint on one. Really fun (and easy) to paint up. Maybe next one I'll even let the primer dry. :)
