Apologies on the pictures however, there is no natural light at midnight in Scotland at this time of year so there is a cast from the daylight bulbs at the painting table.
The axe was placed with the cutting edge facing backwards on purpose almost like a statement to the Christian Saxons that ultimately killed Penda; here is my axe and hammer of my foes.
Hope that you like him and will get this sent to Curt as soon as possible.
Next is a warmachine for Hordes of the Things, in 15mm from Alternative Armies range of undead, not much else to say.
Points from this post
1 x 28mm figure - 5
1 x Curtgeld - 20
1 x 15mm war m/c - 4
Thanks again for a superb challenge and looking forward to VIII already. As always its is great to see everyone else's work showcased in the one place; to admire and learn from everyone's painting and effort to our shared hobby. Peace and respect to all and a raised glass to Curt as organizer and to all of the minions for making this possible for us all.
Wow, Penda and the other two warriors are just fantastic, thanks so much Ross! I really like your explanation of his reversed axe - that's so hardcore! I love it. Now I have to go read more about this Dark Age hero and plan for a SAGA force to accompany him. Yes, it never ends (gladly).
Penda and your freaky undead catapult will give you 30 points with a bit of a round-up.
Thanks again Ross and I hope we'll see you next year.
