Well, after a break of a couple of years on this one, I've painted some additions...

This was my entry in last week's round of the Lead Painters League. 'Mordred and Morgana'



The figures are all Footsore except for:
- Morgana, who is a Lucid Eye 'Celt Witch', and
- The figures blowing a horn and with flowing orange cape respectively... Those two are from what was the short-lived Saxon Miniatures, now owned by Warlord Games.













As you can see, I actually painted some of the Saxon Miniatures mounted figures to take part originally, but honestly, hate to say it (mainly because I bought a shitload of these) I just don't like them.
The castings were pretty terrible with horrible mould lines down the faces on some. And stylistically they just don't go well with the Footsore figures. It's a totally different look. So apart from the couple of foot figures, I left them out of the LPL photo :?

It has, however, meant that my Romano-British cavalry arm numbers a substantial 18... Here are some en masse pics...







And just for the hell of it, the Saxon incomer enemy...



The thin red(dish) line...

The figures may be flawed but your painting is not!  The horses are excellent and your painting style is vibrant and makes the figures come alive.
