For those who don't- you can see what I mean by vignette style on my website here:
Easy? Well, actually no! The extra space afforded by Impetus seems to have guided me 'back' towards putting the units together so they look like a more coherent mass of Medieval soldiery and away from leaving too many spaces on each base. I'm almost at a loss to explain it. Since I was eleven I've had it drummed into me that the essential thing about composition was to have some sort of balance in each 'scene'. Art college did away with a lot of these notions, where I learnt that dis-chord in an image could as easily and was sometimes the only way of conveying a message.
So why the back peddling? Maybe it's something as simple as losing my bottle on the larger bases and not being as willing to experiment these days? I'm really at a bit of a loss to explain all of this.....
So, whilst I ponder, here's a couple of pics of the finished Men-at Arms bases (OK, so they need some filler- save that topic for another day!)
Don't forget, you can click on the images to enlarge them.
