Forest Patrol

Today I took a picture with some models I have finished some time ago and I wanted to share the result. A few men scouting the forest.

Foot Serjeants

I have been playing the yellow piece in most of the boardgames that I play for a long time now. Ironically I have never owned an army of any kind that was yellow. I thought this would be a good moment to add some yellow stuff to this too because of the imperial banner and all. For my first unit of foot serjeants I thought it would be fun to have this unit from a town that lies on the lands of my leader (him being a noble and all). I don't really know how that would work if say there were multiple towns and say this one wasnt governed by a lord but more something that you would call an Exarch. A sheriff of some sort. I'll just roll with it and create the unit for that later. These are some drummed up poor souls that get to fight in that army.

Names follow later as that works better for me. I really like the guy with the trumpet.

Knights

It has been quiet here for a while. I wasn't idle though, I just didn't have the time to take decent pictures yet. So now that I did I will roll out a bunch of updates faster.

One of the things I struggle with a lot when it comes to miniatures is that I have the tendency to over compensate and I often don't get to start things or I redo them. Even though I really enjoy creating entirely new things I can get stuck on simple things such as shield designs or a flag. I am slowly learning how to deal with this but here and there I get to go back and redo a few things.

This time my leader had to suffer and I made a different model for him that looks very similar. He is still nameless but I figured I'll get back to it once I finished all my models for this project.

I did not get round to finishing his base yet but I'm sure that will happen soon.


I also turned one of his mounted brothers blue's into reds. 




This guy hasn't changed but I took some better pictures of him.



This guy is new.




And finally the banner carrier that goes with my leader. I stole the imagery of Stephen of Blois because I'm really interested in the Anarchy, Except I'm using one centaur instead of three. I also changed the field from one red field to a split red and white field but it's a small homage I guess.




This is them all together so far. One guy still missing but he will join soon.

The Solace Campaign

Hey everyone,

Some time ago I managed to convince a good friend to finally play a game with me. We decided on late 15th century medieval forces and we will use the plastic perry collection.

I was happy to start a new project with so many plastics to mix and mash to my hearts desire. 

I named this my Solace Campaign because I am at a bit of a stand still in my life right now. There are probably a few people that would get upset by me calling it this. The thing is that I am fighting the black fog of depression. What has managed to keep this at bay for a while now is making progress with my miniature projects. up until now this seems to be a thing that lowers that pressure for me and I felt it would be a good name for a project that has no significant background besides a style choice.  I really hope to build something amazing here and hopefully as I am working on this I can compare the progress of the army to me getting better. 


We decided to go with Lion Rampant as ruleset. My models will have a strong German vibe but as I don't know too much about the time I am allowing myself full creative freedom and mainly let myself be inspired by it. 

So far I have finished my leader and two of his men at arms.
