(Africa Month) Fon Female Warriors I (aka Amazons)

I finished the first four Dahomey Amazons today. The miniatures are from Dixon and as previously discussed some have had head swaps to increase the variety (though I can't rightly remember if this group includes any conversions).

Pretty good figures sculpted by Mike Owen before he went to Foundry, I used the same painting technique of block, wash and highlight as the male warriors for the clothing and weapons, with the flesh just being a heavy drybrush over black undercoat.


  1. Not seen these figures before. Interesting and great paint job!

  2. fearsome lot - nicely painted.

  3. Very nice. Painting dark skin tones can be a bit tricky but you've pulled it off nicely.
