As I start writing-up this post (Sunday evening), I'm not sure if I'll make the cut-off for Monday 24th January, I've just varnished 47 of these little chaps and still have to apply the shield art and then base and photograph the outcome!
|All 47 of the little Norman blighters! Finally finished in eth nick of time.|
I think I bit-off a little too much to chew this week, what with the mounted Normans plus the Zombies all jostling for priority to get completed.
|First batch of five Norman Foot|
So here are 47 Victrix Norman Foot, for a description on how these were painted I'll refer you back to my previous post on the Norman Cavalry! Exactly the same process here but no horse flesh. I'm reasonably pleased on how these turned out, they will greatly bolster my Norman forces for the Battles of 1066.
|A group of largely unarmoured Normans, the guy on the right has leather armour|
|A group of chain mail clad Normans|
There are 19 chain mail armoured guys here, 12 in Leather armour and 16 unarmoured guys, the majority are armed with a spear although the rest have swords, axes or maces as their primary weapons, each carries a kite shield.
|Yet another batch of Norman Foot!|
|... and more. I really like the Victrix figures, more detail than the Conquest Games version of the same, |
that said they are probably a little less robust on the gaming table!
So as it happens - I literally completed these little guys 20 mins before a self imposed deadline of mid-day on Monday. Hopefully they'll meet the posting schedule! Note to self - after all by blabbering about preparation in my last post - pick a sensible number of figures to paint in one batch. 47 is probably too big!!
|Four more Norman Foot|
|The last three Normans|
47 x 28mm Foot = 235 POINTS
Forty seven figures Mike? Did you use a random number generator to come up with that, or is there a 48th stuck in limbo so that you can make two 24 man units?
Anyway, ramblings on prime numbers aside, these are great. I am glad that you got these done in time to get them posts. We look forward to seeing the hordes that roll of the assembly line for next week.
