I managed to get these eight Norman crossbowmen done over the weekend while judiciously avoiding relatives, partygoers and assorted revelers. "Yes, yes, Happy New Year and best wishes. Now, bugger off..."
These are 28mm Gripping Beast castings. For a change from the norm I decided to use AP Quickshade (strong tone) for this group and then go over them with to pick out their highlights. On the whole they turned out OK, but I'm still trying to get the hang of the whole Quickshade thing.
Last pic is of my Norman warhost to-date. Slowly but surely its coming along.
These crossbowmen will give me 40 points. Next is a batch of archers and some Jomsvikings for fun. (Mmm, jom, jom, jom...)
