 Those look great. For me less detailed figures are more fun to paint. Hundreds of highly detailed figures can be overwhelming.

 Great show.

Thanks, they are wonderful figures, and make a difference having recently finished 120 Polish pancerni and Russian Boyars, with no figure the same! The good news is more cavalry are available from Caliver books and I have a load more coming from the states, my game at Exeter, 12 May, is likely to need a bigger table!

More old school stuff, my fleet of Hinchliffe Elephants, a Barbarian and Eastern Infantry, some Northmen, Zumas Infantry, some based as light infantry and a couple of Minifigs Egyptian Chariots, could not bring myself to paint the horses as Zebras as per the books! Will need one for the evil wizard To-Me-Ku-Pa with black horses. Good news is Caliver have released more Cavalry in the S&S range

More Minifigs S&S chaps, Zamorans and Eastern Spearmen/ Swordsmen painted as part of the Turan force. Infantry coming on well now, a few more units to do, pleased to see more Cavalry are now available from Caliver Books.

And a few more, foot soldiers of the evil wizard To-Me-Ku-Pa nearly finished! (Although the Picts may be neutral) Picts, Khojans, Shemites and more Hykranians.

A few more chaps, Bossonian archers, more Gundermen pike, Western swordsmen, Western Mercanaries (Black Legion with a touch of colour) Western Knights (From a surplus of Western Standard bearers) Skeletons and faceless men. The latter, I think, are based on story with Conan and a gang of pirates on a mysterious island.

Final Vandyan and Hykranian Cavalry, Cimmerians, Turanian Lancers x 2 variations and Stygian bowmen. Some more Eastern Units and chariots, Western Cavalry then some terrain pieces, should be on track for the big game at Legionary 7 May 22.

These guys are a lot better off in your hands being painted than they were in my basement waiting for … something. It all looks very inspiring!

Progress report, last Mid Western foot, spearmen and swordsmen. Eastern light lancers, Khojan light lancers and Mid Western Knights. Finally some command figures, the wizard is not from the S&S range but he is a splendid figure! Soon be time to get to work on some terrain.

The wizard is VFW93, from Minifigs Valley of the Four Winds range; an impressive fellow…
