This blog was originally intended to be the home for my dark age Britain project but on completion I found blogging such a great inspiration to complete stuff, that I just naturally continued. Please note that as a result of persistent spamming any comments are moderated . Sorry
I'm trying to be a bit clever with this project and only order so much lead at a time. That way I get it painted before the next lot arrives. Quite exciting painting to a dead line. Bit pricey on postage for small lots though but then you can't win em all. So this package was from pendraken who I have decided will supply the Gromstadt infantry, all the cavalry and all the artillery. First up the Gromstadt infantry. pendraken figures and really very nice. A lot of painting though mainly because they are so detailed. When you have 60 figures in a battalion the detail doesn't seem so important.

Again pendraken figures. Very nice lots of detail..

I really enjoyed painting the cavalry. Quite challenging. Also 24 cavalry on a 120mm frontage is just an awesome site.

Mounting more as we speak. I love this scale and the packed bases.
