On the Painting Tray: March 2013

After the marathon of almost 200 Scutarii, the next lot lined up will seem almost a relaxation by comparison: command bases for Hastings.  There's a base of five figures for Harold Godwinson, then one of four and one of three for his brothers.  For the Normans (all mounted), there will be a base of five for William the Lucky Bastard, one of four for his peace-loving brother Odo, aka the Bishop with the enormous club, and two bases of three figures for the lesser commanders, one of which will be Bretons.  So that's twelve foot and 15 mounted, a reasonable number to paint in a couple of weeks (the next trial of the game is on March 19th), especially since the Saxons are almost finished already.  In fact, I might be able to put photos on the blog sometime this weekend - it has to be said that those Little Big Men banners are lovely.  I also need to rebase 120 Norman infantry figures for the same battle.  Anything I manage later in the month will be a bonus - commanders for Chalons will be next on the list...

  1. Sounds like an interesting mix of figures. Good luck with the re-basing BTW, never a fun task.
