I painted more Berbers this week in a different scheme, these are darker skinned and have hide shields. Again, I liked the way they came out when looked at on their own.
But I have some concerns about putting them on the table with metals. Here they are alongside a unit of Crusader Normans who could serve as my Christian Spanish enemies:
And here they are alongside some mixed Saxons and Vikings from Foundry and Old Glory:
And here is one Berber alongside a Crusader Norman, and Old Glory Saxon, and a Foundry Viking:
The Crusader stuff is large, and furthermore on the thick GW base towers over the rest. The height of the Berber is fine compared to Old Glory and Foundry, but the proportions are quite different with respect to weapons and head size in particular. Metals are generally overarmed and bucket-headed.
I clearly would not mix them in units, but kind reader, do you think they could appear on the same table, in opposing armies, without looking too silly? If so, I clearly should be basing them on thin bases to minimize their size differences.
