Here are my Romano-British / Arthurian figures from the last round of the LPL. They are Musketeer Miniatures.

I’ve bought pretty much the whole Musketeer Early Saxon / Arthurian range, including the new ‘Arthur’s Knights’ cavalry packs, with a view to – eventually – setting up a couple of rival forces for Saga. (Although interestingly, I don’t think there are battle boards for Sub Romans or Early Saxons in Saga yet. Ah well, perhaps I’ll use them for Dux Britanniarum instead).
Anyway, I reckon I need to paint about 60 – 70 figures. Goodness knows how long that will take.

These shields are hand-painted, but I must say, having sworn never to use transfers, I have succumbed to some of the sublime LBMS transfers for the Arthurian / sub-Roman cavalry - when I get round to them…
Meanwhile, there’s another batch of these characterful figures to come from me later in the LPL.

I'm going to chart my progress in this thread. Mainly to give me the incentive to keep up the momentum!
I'm parking it here in the 'Age of Myths, Gods and Empires', because to my mind, sub-Roman Britain and the coming of the Saxons, C5th AD, is the tail end of the ancient period, not 'medieval' as I think of it. But each to his own...  :)

Here they are...

Very very nice! Adding a bit of colour to the Dark Ages. I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops.

Excellent Richard, I'm looking forward to this. I think Cornwell's Arthur kicks Martin's GOT into touch  :D

Outstanding as always!!  :o :o  The colours you chose work very well on those.
I have all the Musketeer Arthurian heroes and the Arthur's 'knights' packs in the painting queue and they are great models!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the 'knights'...

Captain, fantastic as usual.
Your colors are always so vibrant.
Have you ever revealed your secret?
Do you base coat white? Have you ever put up a tutorial?
