Chalk another groan up for that title. A unit of duellists armed solely with a hand weapon each just done - they are quite some models, these pilgrims from the Perry bros. Good variety between 'em, nicely detailed without complicating the painting. Certainly my favourites to do so far. Alas, a bit of a distraction during a time of much-needed revision, but I won't complain too much.
I've a couple more stored away in a drawer, possibly for a time when I may be a bit bored of painting armour and complicated weapons. They certainly differ in those respects. Next up I have a couple of cavalrymen from the Perrys' Muslim Crusader range. I've never gotten on well with horses (both IRL and painting-wise) so I largely try to avoid them. Hopefully these models should prove to be an exception, since both rider and horse have very little armour and plenty of cloth. We'll soon see.
