the Archers and Command stands now added - The Conquerors Army is now complete - it just needs it foe (which also needs to be based)

Total Norman Forces = 35 units strong and 10 command stands

Need some Byzantines facing them now, of course.  lol

But seriously, folks, very pretty.

Byzantine vs. Norman has lots of potential.

Very impressive - that certainly must have taken some doing. Be good to see more pics. So when are the Anglo Saxons going to arrive.

Thanks guys - so I better show you the Saxon Army (painted at the same time as the Norman Army - this has been nine months of pain)

Lots of photos here

That's very impressive.  Do you have any problems with having things stand up okay on the fur in some of your shots, or do you find the bases big enough to avoid issues with that?

Thanks Maniac - the stands are big enough not to fall over but they do get snagged. Still in two mimds as to whether I'll use the fur or the base green boards...
