I have been painting like a demon and actually gaming every now and then as well. So below are some figures I put on ebay, sold now but nice miniatures. I purchased them some time ago with ideas for a great new project which then totally fell by the way side......
I ended up basing and selling them for SAGA, I have never played the game but it seems to be well liked. Here are the first block of four, they are Gripping Beast Irish Fianna, I replaced the spears with steel ones from Gripping beast. I used the little big man transfers, until now I was a transfer virgin.
And the second block of Fianna:
Some Gripping beast Norman cavalry, again I replaced the supplied spears for steel, I hand painted the shields on these:
Some black tress design huscarls, I do not think these are quite as nice as the gripping beast, the quality has more variation. Here I had a crack at hand painting the shields.
All in all it made a nice change from Napoleonics, I would recommend the transfers to anyone, they look better than my hand painted efforts and took no time at all.
There will be another update soon.
