A Converted Horn-Blower & GB Warriors!

The majority of these are Gripping Beast stalwarts for the shieldwall, with the exception of Harold Horn-Blower. Perhaps a distant ancestor of Horatio, this Horn-Blower is a conversion using a body from Blacktree Designs, a head from Westwind's Dark Age ranges, a fur cape made from greenstuff, and a shield that I believe came from a plastic GW orc. Don't like to waste a figure if I can avoid it :-)
The shields are a mix of decals and freehand.








All the best,
John.

Eureka! More Hardy Warriors Join the Shieldwall...

These hardy warriors are all from Eureka Miniatures small, but rather splendid, range of 28mm Dark Age figures. I am hoping to fill out the ranks with a few more from them, and even a couple of special "civilian" items. There is an even split between decals & freehand on the shields. Interestingly the figure 2nd from right in first picture was originally armed with the angon, I replaced this with a standard spear. I like the variety of clothing & armour in the figures.








I updated the blog a bit recently, including my painting commission page.

All the best,
John.

Twas a Mighty Saxon Horde.....

G'day all,
recently finished a large commission of Anglo Saxons, all Crusader Miniatures 28mm metals. The basing and banners are to be done by my client, the shields are a combination of freehand and decals.

There were 2 x 24 figure units of fyrd, 8 x Archers, 8 x Slingers, and 24 Thegns. Here are some pics :-)






























Hope you didn't mind looking at all the pictures? I wouldn't mind some of these poses in my own collection.

All the best,
John.
