So I drifted back to good old GB, put Pyrrhos in his box, and got Arthur and the gang back on the desk.
The first of the Saxons now nearing completion, just the bases to do on these.
Musketeer Minis from the talented paws of Bill Thornhill, smashing figures to paint as well.
Romano-British, from Gripping Beast, these are from an army I picked up on eBay, I have re-worked the flesh area, and the metals, added LBMS shield transfers, and replaced the bendy lead spears with some nice brass ones. They don't look too shabby.
Theres only one way to decide this, FIGHT!!! as Harry Hill would say. I have to say I am rather pleased with how the Wolkskin cloak turned out.
I'm no star painter by any imagination, I can turn out a decent tabletop standard, and these figs look OK to me.
Now I just need to badger Bill Thornhill to expand his range even further, with some up armoured Romano-Brits, some more Arthurian type cavalry, and a decent range of Picts
Saying that, i would suggest looking at the Goths, and Late Romans in the Musketeer range, as there are a number of very useable figures in both ranges. Plus, the new personality figures are just fantastic, I shall be ordering all of them to add to my lead pile.
One day I shall get something finished!!!!
