Dark Age miniatures from Splintered Light again. Really like this character pack which offers a ready-to-play warband for skirmish games. Also really like the Viking shield decals from Little Big Men. The best so far.
Since taking these pictures I think I’ve now cracked the field of depth issue on my camera – which is just as well because these really suffer.
My first effort with Little Big Men shield transfers did not go so well with my Greeks (partly because of the contour on the shields, partly because I couldn’t cut out a perfect circle!). These ones were more successful and I’m pretty please that I didn’t spend hours hand painting them.
I was also messing around with magnetic bases hence the uniformity of the warriors – posing them individually would make for a better pic and I may come back and do that so they are seen without that disadvantage.
Mounted and archers still to paint but some Viking characters from SLM very soon. All heading towards SAGA in 15mm I think…
Before anyone complains, I know – this band is a mash-up of a few periods and races. Trust me, I know; but I don’t care. My interpretation of a Dark Ages warrior band is simply that. Mine. And it benefits from lashings of fantasy, artistic license and buckets of personal preferences.
Gamer Confession*: Despite having a few hundred painted Dark Age and Early Medieval forces, and a host of unpainted of the same, I am waiting for a new order from Splintered Light Miniatures for more Vikings, sub-Romans and other friends. Does that make me bad? (David at SLM was having a 20% sale!)
* Gamer Confession is a new category I’m going to be adding occasionally. This represents the little miniature demon that haunts all wargamers/miniature painters/collectors. Basically the ‘shiny syndrome’. I’m doing this to remind myself when I’ve been bad and need to pull myself up for adding unnecessarily to the lead pile, extensive and growing project list or similar.
A while back I bought in to some of Rebel Minis “Armies” of re-packaged Splintered Light miniatures (Set 1 and Set 2). Clearly, not an army in the traditional sense but certainly a great way to get your hands on virtually all manner of ‘human’ type adventurers you could shake a stick at.
