By one figure at a time, I mean that literally. I decided to get back to my Normans and Saxons, with the idea of using SBH with them (after all, why not? the shock period is just fantasy without magic, right?). So here is the one figure I completed this weekend – a mounted Saxon leader:
The Saxon leader rides the length of his line, checking his troop.
With him complete, I have a playable Saxon warband.
Saxons ready to defend a bridge against a Norman advance party.
The minis are Revell 1/72 plastics and I found them a bit tough to paint, since they measure exactly 24 mm from the sole of the shoe to the top of the helm. As a result, the paint job lacks the level of detail that my usual Reaper fantasy models get, who generally measure in at 33-34 mm (a whole centimeter taller) for a human character. But I still think they pass the arm's length test.
I've also got my Normans primed and based and ready for paint, so hopefully the Saxons will have someone to fight soon.
