From TimB: 28mm Anglo-Saxons, Norman Foot, Greek Light Horse plus a Celt and a Greek (310 points)

Wow, the lads sure have been busy! Its been a week of multiple-period, multiple-posts ranging from Ancient Greece to present day Mogadishu, from characterful single figures to large multiple units - all of it excellent stuff! So keeping up both the theme and tempo Tim sends us a veritable cornucopia of great minis to look at. First up is an impressive unit of Anglo-Saxons arrayed in one of their formidable shieldwalls.

Tim tells me that this unit is composed of a dog's breakfast of 28mm manufacturers: Gripping Beast, Old Glory and Black Tree Design to name a few.

And really, who better to face-off with the Anglo-Saxons than those avaristic yobs with bad haircuts from the Cotentin. Yes, you guessed it, the Normans.

These are all 28mm Crusader castings. Tim did fabulous work on the shields with both of these units.

Next we have a stand of two 28mm Greek light cavalry from Black Tree Design...

...truly an ancient Greek from Warlord Games...

... and finally a sunbather from the Orkneys wearing nothing but his tattooes (and, well, a huge freakin' sword). He's from Warlord Games as well.

These fourty-nine foot and two mounted will give Tim a base of 265 points, but I'm going to award him another 45 points for the great hand-painted work on the various shields and the tattooed loon. So 310 it is. Wonderful stuff, Tim!


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
