My Scots warband for SAGA needed a few reinforcements, So today's entry consists of a unit of warriors and one of levies (20 figures in total, so worth a nice hefty 100 points). All the figures are Gripping Beast. Here they all are.
First up, the warriors. As always, the shields are all hand painted, because that is how I roll. Decals schmecals. I also tried to do tart up their tunics with checks and stripes, stopping just on this side of sanity.
Here's one of my favourite figures of all time, photographed from Odin's point of view.
Then there are the 12 levy archers, but nobody cares about them, right?
Finally, and not for points, here's a Chronomancer and Apprentice for Frostgrave. As a few other Challengers have pointed out, one of the nice things about the Challenge is getting our kids interested and involved. My 9 year-old Valkyrie is pretty interested in Frostgrave, and painted up these lovely figures from Northstar. She did the basic block painting, I tidied them up, did some detail and made the bases.
More Scots Alan? There's an ongoing theme here and it isn't camels thankfully! These are nae so wee as we've seen before from you but every bit as good. Hand painted shields and tartans are indeed enough to drive a man to the edge of madness but it's more than worth the effort. I was going to suggest you receive a few extra points for the that but I'm more impressed by your use of the word "schmecals", an ancient Gallic term which roughly translates as "Argh, my mind canna handle this!". 100 points of minis and another 3 for the schmecals. Well done! Cheers, Millsy.
PS. Your little Valkyrie is clearly a lady of some talent. A wonderfully deep red matched with contrasting whites is a bold and effective choice!
