I eventually settled on Viking and Later Roman, and they arrived last week. I have been tentatively planning a trip to Warfare in Reading in November, and so the Vikings would fit into the theme.
I finally picked up a paintbrush today, and my goodness, these are tiny figures, I have not painted any 15mm in several years, so slapping paint on these little guys was a real change.
Normally, my painting pattern is to do a whole swathe of figures at once. So for example for a Viking army, I might do all the Huscarles as a batch, all the Bondi as a batch, and so on. This is efficient, but it can also be very tedious as you spend a long time with a single colour. Applying it to pants here, tunics there, cloaks etc. This time I thought I would just grab up a few elements worth and tackle them together.
So here they are:
|From L-R, Bondi, Archers & Huscarles.|
I really like these figures, and they have a heap of variety. Looking forward to polishing off a few more batches over the next couple of weeks.
And some more..
|Raiders, Berserks, Huscarles, General|
|Longships, 6mm models from Irregular.|
