My "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" Cavalry
« on: October 06, 2016, 05:14:18 AM »


I have been very slow to take pictures of my Anglo-Saxon project, I'm usually taking pictures of commissions as my priority. I have painted quite a number of figures for this project over the last couple of years - very slow progress though. These pictures are of figures that I completed in the last month or so. I have used an unconverted GW metal Eowyn miniature - with feet pinned into a piece of rock (bark), and a Saxon Miniatures figure with a Little Big Men Studios banner & shield decal for the command base. The other figure is a converted metal GW Rohan Royal Guard miniature, which has had a new shield (LBMS decal), a redesigned helmet, a shortened cloak & hauberk, cloth bindings sculpted onto lower legs, and hair sculpted out the back of the helmet. I'm pleased with how they all turned out, and really took my time to get a colour scheme & details that I was happy with.

All the best,
John.

Brilliant indeed. I've always thought using a rohan royal guardsman and sculpt a wolf head instead of a horse head to make a Uthred. I always thought Rohan minis are quite compatible for such crossover exercise

Stunning brushwork!
That is the best rendition of Eowyn that I think I have seen.

Good to know about those shield transfers too.

Those look great! And the saxon miniatures anglo-saxon really fit scale-wise with the Lotr-minis. Which is giving me some ideas for a more dark age looking lotr project :)

Brilliant...and I also love the Eowyn fig. She leads one of my Viking warbands.

I use a converted Erkenbrand model for one of my Viking warlords! These look great, Eowyn is a fantastic model.
