Starting Over

As so often with my projects I wasnt happy with what I had made. Mainly because from a rules point of view it didn't really connect.

I therefore decided to set up 2 new basic armies. I will then after those are done redistribute my already painted models and set them up in new units and I will slowly expand the armies.

First army will consist out of  a unit of heavy cavalry and one of light cavalry, some spearmen, archers and foot knights.

The second one will be similar but instead of archers I will give them crossbowmen.

This is what I already built up.



More soon as I am painting this rather fast because I would like to play a game with these wonderful miniatures.

SAGA Worthy Progress

Hey there,

I made some progress on my SAGA army (armies). I created a new leader and some warriors.

This is what everything looks like right now set up together.




Quite a few new ones but not everything has proper basing yet or is standing next to a decent unit. I will fix that in time and post some pictures of it. 


This is the new leader. I named him Halvar.







These new warriors got finished and I made them with the intention to leave them together. I went with a more pagan look for these.

Valhalla Awaits















When I started this blog I made mention of the fact that I had then recently gotten myself interested in SAGA. A game that hasn't seen much of my table since then. Until now. I recently felt I should maybe explore my models and add some to it. So I did. But I have not yet posted any of them here so I will do so now as I'm already nearing the finishing of a small warband. I have replaced some models with better looking ones.

I love the dark ages, so many interesting cultures and customs. The Pagans' love for life is one that I always found fascinating and kind of envy.

For this project I am creating several warbands again because I do have a playing partner but not one that collects the game too.

The Idea also was that I would build on and when I would feel like playing I could grab models off the shelves that could either serve as Vikings, Anglo-Danes, Anglo-Saxon or maybe even Joms Vikings. I will create several leaders so one can pick those up and choose them for their warbands leader at least.

In the end most of the warriors wear mail and a round shield. I hope to at some point own enough models to make this possible but I think I am well on my way.

Here is a small overview of what is finished so far.





This is my first leader. I named him Tostig. He is accompanied by a saxon banner bearer but that could always represent something else. The bearer is not stuck to the same base.



 A small unit of Warriors.


 And the second.



More to come soon.

Ironclad Plastics









I recently started a second blog where I will just be posting the historic looking models. My medieval armies mainly. I aptly named it Ironclad Plastics because that is mainly what they are.

If you think you might enjoy just those models but not all the clutter that comes with it here then I'd suggest to give that blog a follow at: http://ironcladplastics.blogspot.com
