A Viking hero from Foundry. Probably more fantasy than historical :-)

Not as much there, a lot of that depends upon what you wanted him doing.

If you're raiding from a ship, well, you probably aren't wearing as much armor and probably less clothing if it's warm enough. Finding a deeper spot and ending up drowned is not something they'd particularly want to have happen...

Some years ago I have seen one picture, but I cannot find it now. They had clean shaven head with their forehead pierced with a piece of metal if I remember well.
The closer figures pic I found is this of the Old Glory miniatures, but they wear turbans.

A Viking hero from Foundry. Probably more fantasy than historical :-)

You paint beautifully! We have many of the same Viking minis from Foundry (my favorites), and it’s interesting for me to see how people interpret the models. For example, I made this guy a priest of Thor for my SAGA factions. I agree that the model is rather ahistorical but after a decade painting GW stuff, my style is inextricably linked to cartoonishness so I guess it fits 😂

Thanks for that DintheDin — couldn’t not make that beautiful neo-classical Italian horse armour from Armies of the Middle Ages Vol. 1. The knights in Italian style armour will also be available with more generic armoured horses, both for Italian condottiere and for use as Eastern Europeans. (Italian and German armour styles were used in Hungary, Serbia, etc, but polish styles were pretty much the same as German).

My varnish is drying a slight satin now for some reason, but I like it. Some of it would be the bright lights I'm using for the camera work.

The chap with the 2 handed sword in post 342 is from pack 57 (at least that's what is written on the one in my unpainted lead mountain) but it doesn't appear on the website. Suspect they're put of stock as Steve suggested.

These are absolutely stunning paint-jobs Steve on the loveliest medieval figures on the market IMO. Thank you for sharing  :-*

Tons of character. I did an Ottoman army with Mikes Models and they were actually nice figures. Huge turbans and by tat stage they were using Essex horses I think, which were actually quite nice.

Indeed. Lovely painting, and for 15mm, lovely figures.

You and me both with the Mike’s Models Ottomans.
I remember getting the train down to Brighton and visiting his (short-lived) shop to buy a load of his new Ottoman Turks to supplement my 15mm Minifigs Turks. The figures seemed incredibly detailed at the time by comparison. Although they were proper chunky little munchkins if I think about them now. Cute though  lol
But at the time, they were as revelatory in 15mm as Essex Miniatures were in 25mm - showing that wargames figures could ooze character and detail. Well, caricature perhaps... :)

I sold them on about 30 years ago :)

that's right - the shop in Brighton*! There's where my brother got them - 'it's all coming back to me now ...'  ;D

they were certainly a revelation after Peter Laing figures - lovely tho' those were in their own way.

Great looking figures! The painting is superb!

I noticed that you drill a the Essex lances out for the Knights and for the standard bearers. I've attempted this before, with my little hand drill, but had no luck. Can I ask what drill set up you use to achieve it?

Thanks!

I use a basic pin vice with a 1mm drill bit. It doesn't always go well :-)

These are such great pieces  :o

How you put the faces on the 15mm figures is very artful, as I often find that on the bare metal sculpts there isn’t always a clear face to be seen, unlike on 28mm models where details like lips, brow, nose, cheek and jaw lines etc are ‘ready-made’ for you. It means that you have actually put the face on there, or ‘found’ it in the sculpt, which is very impressive!

I had a quick bash at painting some 15mm stuff over the weekend and they were very unsatisfactory and that's being kind! I'll give them another go at some point soon and see if I can amend the end result. Perhaps by using larger 'gaps' in the layering.

I have a question, Deano. Do you spend long cleaning up your models before you start?
I only ask, as I have some Khurasan models, and they are very nice, but there are bits of wonky detail, or slightly unclear bits in the sculpts, which make it hard to make them look 'perfect', but you seem to manage to make them look impeccable.

Is it all in the paint job, or is there more prep involved too?
Title: Re: Deano's Dark Age / Medieval figures (Updated Oct 28th)
Post by: Deano on October 28, 2020, 12:00:38 PM
My prep is the normal flash and mould line removal and snipping of the 'worm' bits - other than that I guess it's the paint job?

I do find details on figures are a lot clearer when they've been undercoated.
Title: Re: Deano's Dark Age / Medieval figures (Updated Oct 28th)
Post by: Ockius on October 28, 2020, 12:14:39 PM
Well your paint job does an excellent job of bringing out the best in the models.
I think perhaps my method (pretty rough and table-top standard) is more reliant on washes, and washes will pick out imperfections, whereas a more precise method can 'correct' them.

Keep up the great work, I always like seeing the models on this thread.

Random question.. do we know ifvRomans marched in step?
Title: Re: Deano's Dark Age / Medieval figures (Updated Dec 5th)
Post by: dadlamassu on December 05, 2020, 01:22:55 PM
Yes they did.  The miles are Roman miles (0.92 miles or 1.481 km)

At the beginning of their training recruits must be taught the marching step. They will only learn to march
quickly and in time if they practise continuously. And so they must complete a march of 20 miles in
5 hours at normal marching speed. When they march at a faster speed they must complete a distance of 24
miles in the same time.
Vegetius, 1.9

I am sorry you think that.  You asked if they marched in step and Vegetius indicates that they did - they marched in the Roman Military Step. 

If want a specific answer it does help to be precise.  What you asked was vague as it covers some 2000 years of history from the founding of Rome to the fall of Constantinople.  Neither did you specify whether you were asking about drill on a parade ground. marching on a route march or tactically in battle.  From what you now say I think you actually meant "cadenced step".

There is an astonishing number of books, academic papers in journals, Doctorate theses in University libraries, larger reference libraries and some are available online.  Some are free some charge a fee.  They cover Roman drill, marching songs, military music, pay, religion, marriage, recruitment, training and almost every aspect of the Roman Army (and navy).  I found one on the colour of horses in Roman Britain.  In addition the Romans (not all were military men) wrote a lot about military operations though no actual drill manuals have survived they are referred to in many other sources. 

A good starting point is "The Complete Roman Army" by Adrian Goldsworthy (one the best authorities on the Roman Army) which has a very useful bibliography. 

Happy research!  You will find the answer and also gain a great insight into the fascinating Roman military and the many and varied opinions of the academics.



Title: Re: Deano's Dark Age / Medieval figures (Updated Dec 5th)
Post by: Shahbahraz on December 05, 2020, 11:02:00 PM
I have Goldsworthy, a range of other books on the Roman army, and a huge number of Academia articles downloaded over years.

I simply can't remember any reference to whether Romans marched in step. So I asked for a reference to that. You haven't (so far) given one. I appreciate you saying 'do your own research' - but I thought someone on here might be able to point me to the specific reference. You can't or won't. Cool. 

But don't assume I haven't looked, or assume I haven't got a library of well over 1000 books on Ancient Warfare from all sorts of authors.
Title: Re: Deano's Dark Age / Medieval figures (Updated Dec 5th)
Post by: dadlamassu on December 06, 2020, 08:43:01 AM
Since you mention him Goldsworthy Page 80 " Basic Training" for a reference.  Though no footnote, regrettably.

You might like to ask your question on the "Age of Myths, Gods and Empires" board for a more complete answer.
