Finally finished the next lot of Saxons. The main lot are from the Gripping Beast Dark Age Warrior pack. I’m less keen on this than the Thegn pack. I don’t like some of the poses and I had a few issues getting heads to sit the right way so a couple look like they have their shoulders hunched. Which may be accurate if they are about to get battered!
I’ve got eight of the Warlord Huscarls but just did four to be going on with. Had problems getting the primer to take (the metal kept repelling it) but they have come out OK.
And finally a building to fight over! A Battlefield Buildings solid resin grub hut from Caliver Books. I can’t really be bothered having a removable roof so solid is fine. Cleaned it up using wet and dry paper in a bowl to avoid dust and gave it a good wash. Spray primed black and then assorted paints and washes to give the desired effect. Annoyingly there are a line if air holes across the front and back which I missed when cleaning and spraying and only noticed when I was varnishing! I’m happy that is just looks like rotted wood!
I want to do another ten of the Dark Age warriors and the other Huscarls. But I reckon I’ve got no excuses for not playing something now!
