I've been busy with whip and chair keeping my visiting relatives at bay while I try to get some more Normans done (throwing them gifts, alcohol and turkey apparently works the charm). Here are seven mounted Milites ready to assist their warlord in the despoliation of foreign lands, the giving of silly names and the creation of that first vile accountant's spreadsheet: the Domesday Book.
Like the other Norman stuff I've recently done, these are 28mm Gripping Beast castings that are offered as a collection for their SAGA set of rules. They are very nice castings if a little rounded and soft in the detail. The LBMS shield transfers work a magic on these miniatures, giving a nice finishing touch to the process.
The last shot displays the Milites as the Brothers de Hauteville, charging with their father Tancred. If I were to do ALL the brothers there would need to get four more Milites (Tancred was a VERY busy man)!
BTW, if anyone has an extra one of these milites that you can spare to sell please drop me a note as I had to use an additional one for my command stand and so am a pip short to fill out a proper unit.
These seven will give me 70 points to add to my tally, which puts me at merely a glimmer in the leaders' rearview mirrors instead of nowhere in sight. Now back to some crossbowmen and French Dragoons.
