That's an array to be proud of. So hats off to you!
May we look forward to a full game report once you've established a SAGA list?

Thanks everybody  :)

Indeed. Although I don't know that Saga game reports make particularly interesting reading, being somewhat formulaic in nature - it being a very formulaic game. But I can promise some more nice pictures  ;)

Just need to decide what skirmishers to get for the Arthurians...

Hi Richard,how about pinching Koyote's idea and using Footsore Picts/Scot javlinmen as Cymry Guides,a simple shield swop should transform them ?
Not that I know anything about the period mind  lol

Anyway, I reckon I need to paint about 60 70 figures. Goodness knows how long that will take.

Quote from the first post :)

It's pretty cool to see projects like this develop over time. Lots of work, but when a few groups here and there add up and turn into a viable force on the tabletop (and painted to this amazing level) it provides and impressive sight :)

I am just trying to resist buying a few of the spectacular looking new Saxon Miniatures Arthurian Knights... That would probably give me way too many cavalry for Saga...  ::)


No such thing, get 'em  8)

You're best work ever Richard, superb!  :-*

They truly are treat for the eyes, Captain Blood. I spent a few hours looking at Romano British/Late Romans recently because of your figures but I have managed to resist for the time being...

I noticed that the Westwind Arthurian range do several packs of bowmen, that to my eye look a little better than the Footsore ones - the Westwind pict bowmen,caught my eye in particular.
