@Nick Nascati - Agreed but for now these guys are just for playtesting and to give me a bit of practice with the GS as I haven't sculpted any figures for ages (they were 54mm scale anyway).

I wanted to make up some playtesting minis quickly (for me at least) then come back and sculpt up my own.

One reason for this is I am torn between 28mm(ish) scale and 40mm scale so I'm hoping that some playtesting minis will help make my mind up.

Ah, okay that makes sense.  Any idea if those 40mm Graven Images figures are actually available?

Not any more but I have spoken to Steve and he has some  still but he can't find the arms for them. I managed to get a three from a LAF member. Steve did say there is over 100 minis in the range though most were never molded. There were even chariots. 8)

Progress has been slow as I've been busy making a Link costume for my son for World Book Day and various DIY projects at home...but I have finally finished building the first playtest warband. Behold the Sea Clan...


Here we have 3 Youths with warclubs and small shields, 3 warriors with slings, 3 warriors with spears & shields, 3 Veterans with light armour, spears & shields and a Curadh (champion) with light armour, a rapier & shield.

Again, I know these guys aren't bronze age warriors, just stand ins for a bit of playtesting. Apart from a bit of light GS work and sculpting the youths hurley inspired warclubs these guys were straight forward and fun to build.

Thinking about it I guess there's no reason I can't use my AoB rules for a Dark Age skirmish

Well it has taken me quite a while but I have finally finished painting up my first warband for playtesting AoB...the Sea Clan...


I tried to keep the colours fairly natural and muted but I don't have much to go on for what was available in early-mid BA Britain so I've kinda guessed. I know these guys are all kinds of wrong for the BA, what with chainmail & iron weapons etc,  but until I sculpt something up what I want just isn't quite out there.

Before I start on the Sun Clan I'm going to build up and paint some minis I picked up from Salute so progress will, as ever, be slow...
