Medieval Beginnings.

I have had these guys for many many years, sitting in a bag at the bottom of an old ammo tin! While looking for something different to paint up awhile ago I rediscovered them along with some Men at Arms and some Knights.
After talking with some of the other guys in the group, all of whom have a collection of  medieval troops that need a reason to be brought out into the light, we decided to paint up a few and have some games with them.

These are, of course, the Games Workshop Bretonnian Archers with the exception of two Front Rank chaps added in for good measure.

The colour scheme is totally fictitious, as is the flag. 

I am calling this a unit, six 50 x 50mm stands.

I intend to make some stands of stakes at some point in the future.

Mysterious Woman.

This young lady has been lurking around at the back of the painting table for the past few years!
I have no idea from where she has come, nor for that matter, do I know what I will do with her. 

Having spent several weeks working on the Gettysburg game I was looking for something a little different to do. She was semi painted so I just carried on from where I had left her a couple of years back.

Here are a few photos of the  Mysterious Woman. She is approx 28mm tall.

Apologies for the crappy photos but sunshine in Christchurch seems to be non existent these past few weeks unless I am at work, without my camera and without the subject matter then it will shine strong and bright!!!

One or two other projects are now under way of which there will be more later.
