Another batch of warriors emerge from from the mists of time.....
These are all 28mm metal figures from Gripping Beast, apart from the be-cloaked leader which might be an old Wargames Foundry figure - but I can't find it on their site, let me know if you can identify it. I think I have given him a Wargames Foundry shield from the spares, but I'm not sure who made the original as I picked it up in a trade years ago. Again the shields are a combination of freehand and LBMS decals.







Cheers,
John.

Great collection, painting, and conversions!

I also intend to dig out that Eowyn mini from the Lead Alps for some SAGA (and other) purposes, as soon as I get my act together and those Royal Guards painted up as Hearthguard, so I am very pleased to see it used in a similar way!

I have also converted Hama & just finishing Gamling - no pictures yet though  :)
Like the Royal Guard figure, I have shortened the cloak on these & added shields with suitable equine designs.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

He is a Foundry figure- Isn't he one of the Viking Characters? Pack VIK024 Asmund Skotking? One of the 'Fury of the Northmen' packs.

Elite Anglo-Saxon warriors, thegns & hearthguard, musician & standard bearer. Miniatures from Eureka Miniatures Beowulf range, Blacktree Designs, & Gripping Beast.
I really like the Beowulf range from Eureka, great fun to paint & full of character - those full faced helms are very menacing I reckon. Shields designs are a combination of freehand and decals.




















More to be photographed...seven or eight more groups, possibly more if I get them painted :-)

Cheers,
John.

These are metal Gripping Beast 28mm Anglo Saxon archers. Not sure when I finished these. I think I mentioned before, I've been working on the Anglo Saxons over the last couple of years - when not doing commission painting. I mostly work on them in the evenings and weekends.

They look very nice and will fit in perfectly with the others. Very cool!

This whole collection looks fantastic! I love the earthy tones of the archers. Very realistic.

More Anglo-Saxon warriors. These fellows are of mixed status, some are armed with swords & two wear helms - I'm sure items like that would have been handed down & well looked after, perhaps looted from foes.
These are all 28mm metal miniatures from Gripping Beast. The shields are a mix of freehand and LBMS decals.

They look amazing! Especially impressive is the muted colour palette, they stand out individually despite all having those dull colours!
