Not much of a progress on the painting front lately but at least I got another point of Hearthguard for my Anglo-Danish war band for SAGA done.
The figures are from Crusader Miniatures and albeit being rather static, were fun to paint. For the shields I used transfers from the ever trusty Little Big Men Studios.
Having recently read the latest installation in Bernhard Cornmwells highly enjoyable "Saxon Stories" series of novels I had to have a banner like Uhtreds.
As no-one of the usual suspects seems to have jumped on the band wagon and has produced a fitting transfer yet, I had to make my own.
Most designs of wolves heads on the web seem to be more inspired by House Stark from J.R.R. Martins "A song of ice and fire" series than by actual viking like design. So I used the only one I could find, shrank it to size and printed it out. I couldn't be bothered with figuring out how to mirror the image digitally so I had to hand paint it on the other side.
All in all I'm quite happy with how these fellas turned out, even when considering the amount of time wasted on the banner.
Next in line for my Anglo-Danish are two units of foot warriors. Not sure when I'll get to those though as the butterfly in me got the upper hand again and I'm already working on something completely different again.
Till next time!
