More progress on da savage boyz this week. Got the whole unit complete including my unit filler base. Set things up for a better photo as well...
There is plenty of debate on whether unit fillers are a good thing or not. Some people see them as a cop out or a cheapskate solution where people bulk up unit sizes in any thrifty way they can. Others see them as a way to add some character and distinctiveness to your army.
I'm kind of in the middle myself. Something small (4 bases worth in 24 here) and not just a rock or a tree (a totem pole for savages this time) is a good thing I like to think. Replacing half a unit with pebbles, grass tufts or crud from your bits box seems the opposite. Having said that it's each to their own and who's to say what's right or not? Just my 2c.
Regardless, here's a close up of mine showing the base of the totem and it's shaman accompaniment. Best not to consider HOW you move a totem pole about during a battle eh? :-)
Before I go, welcome to elcid1099 whose Project Auldern 1645 blog is an absolute cracker for wonderful painting and background.
