Here they come again!

Hi gents,

The tally is now thirty four painted and twenty four primed and ready to go! The next batch are Perry melee and casultie figures which I will mix through with the next batch of bases.
I sent another order off to Kingmaker this week having already had two deliverys from them this week this is the thrid since Saturday very quick quick service.
The Perrys order also arrived in a very short space of time also within the week.
Whats still to come is an order from Redoubt one from Gripping Beast and the Ottomans fron TAG so plenty to show when this little lot arrives!Now back to this weeks figures.....
This weeks batch all together.

I am awaiting some more sheilds for these guys either side of this knight.

The knight with the bulls head heraldry is Bartosz of Plomykowo one of two brothers.

I painted the banner free hand fairly simple to do.




A converted foundry knight the paint job is basic but the eye is drawn to the heraldry anyway I think.


This scene reminds me of one from a King Arthur film I saw as a kid. One of the knights throw a snake in amonsgt the Knights to kick of the battle the scene has always stuck with me.

I will try and finish the other figures over the next few days so drop back and see how they turn out.
Best wishes
Willie

  7. Super work, Willie. I really like the trooper with the bandaged head, he is an eye catcher.
