|Twelve swordsmen and twelve crossbows.|
The first unit is twelve sword and shield men. I threw in a few other weapons just for variety. These are very nice models, versatile and pretty. They are easy to paint but, I think, are very handsome. All of the shields are hand painted. At some point, after much practice, they will get some sort of symbol on the shield, but for now, simple designs are enough.
The armor and gambesons take a wash very well. The tabards are not fun to paint and don't really take a wash at all. they are ripe for some free hand, but I haven't decided on what to paint.
The next unit is twelve crossbows. Again, the models are very versatile. These are the same box set as the spearmen I painted for last year's challenge. This gives me three units for Lion Rampant. Once I add some bows, a couple of mounted units and some bidowers I'll be done.
Aaron , just wonderful. I really like the colours you have chosen, subtle yet effective. I actually think the simple shield design is really effective as they are. Top job
