Good grief, that is an amazing collection of beautifully painted figures! Iím torn between admiration and sheer envy...

I think Iíll take the high road and opt for being inspired, thanks for posting the pics!

Cheers Chaps.
I've just spent the evening. Putting together the five figure cavalry unit that will form the Army standard bearer.
It'll be Four Marauder miniatures mounted knights and the citadel mounted bard ADD 18. (I could have sworn I'd six mounted knights but fours all I could find after rooting around for the best part of the day. :?)
I'll undercoat them tomorrow and do a rough sketch of the Army standard.
Plus a little work on the castle.
I would have done some more of it yesterday. But I managed to sidetrack myself in sculpting a version of the 'Mad Guru.'
Absolutely no idea what to do with an Afghan cleric riding a mule .But I've now got one.(Well nearly just his hands to make.)

Thanks It's a bit of a slow burner project.
The 'Keep' will take up the space of the fourth wall and corner. So as far as the curtain wall is pretty much as seen

I'm currently experimenting with a sample of fine wood chip wall paper to substitute for rendering.(Not enough stone effect wallpaper left ,is the catalyst for this sudden burst of invention) Found its possible to hide the seams. With a little over saturation with Mod podge and stippling the two edges into each other..
Not a brilliant photograph as it started to rain . I felt a paper model would be scare easily . So it was chucked in a box and taken in doors.
