Anglo-Saxon Settlement
« on: August 18, 2022, 12:35:51 PM »
Built a 28mm Saxon Village to give my Vikings somewhere to pillage. Great hall and church are built from Paul Davies' plans in WI.









Waiter, my soup is giggling.

Cheers! Fortunately none of my offspring's teddies are in need of skin grafts, despite my threats.

Great job on those! They look like they’ll be a fun setting for games.

Cheers. Apparently giant gold ducks were a common threat in Anglo-Saxon England, feared more than Viking raids.

Beautifully done and thoughtful of you to use factory-farmed teddy fur instead of natural  :)

Thanks all. Working on some fences right now and some more livestock, and I want to make a palisade for the great hall, so I'll add pictures (sans ducks) soon.

Looking good. Makes me think about expanding my little dark age steading.
Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.
