Some of my Dark Age Buildings & Terrain...

Some "proof of concept" pictures of Dark Age terrain stuff. Trying to see if I can take pictures of a bunch of my Dark Age minis in this setting. Not going to be able to fit many in the shot, need to find ways to widen the view without it looking crappy.
Church building is resin from Gripping Beast, cross & cart are from Warbases, rest is scratch-built.










Cheers,

John.

A Converted Horn-Blower & GB Warriors!

The majority of these are Gripping Beast stalwarts for the shieldwall, with the exception of Harold Horn-Blower. Perhaps a distant ancestor of Horatio, this Horn-Blower is a conversion using a body from Blacktree Designs, a head from Westwind's Dark Age ranges, a fur cape made from greenstuff, and a shield that I believe came from a plastic GW orc. Don't like to waste a figure if I can avoid it :-)
The shields are a mix of decals and freehand.








All the best,
John.

Eureka! More Hardy Warriors Join the Shieldwall...

These hardy warriors are all from Eureka Miniatures small, but rather splendid, range of 28mm Dark Age figures. I am hoping to fill out the ranks with a few more from them, and even a couple of special "civilian" items. There is an even split between decals & freehand on the shields. Interestingly the figure 2nd from right in first picture was originally armed with the angon, I replaced this with a standard spear. I like the variety of clothing & armour in the figures.








I updated the blog a bit recently, including my painting commission page.

All the best,
John.
