From PhilH: 28mm Norman Archers (45 points)

Phil has been working hard to meet his personal challenge of 500 points and so sends in this fine unit of Norman archers for use with SAGA. He even worked by candlelight when the power went off in his flat!

Phil's been working so hard on his painting that he forgot to pay his power bill..;).

From Phil:

Luckily, all I had to do was 'tuft' them - perfectly doable by candlelight. 

Eight Viking Levy for Saga. Gripping Beast sculpts. A few minor conversions to add variety: head swaps, arm twists and swaps and the addition of spare hand weapons. The other four are sitting on my paint table still to be done. 

I've something of a paint scheme for my warband:
(http://infrequentwargamer.blogspot.com/2011/12/saga-viking-warband-in-all-its-glory.html) where the hearth guard are quite standard in colours of red/beige/black, Bondi tend to have more browns and greens and these, the Levy are more bland again - exclusively green, grey, brown and beige. 

Two carry shields on their backs which will get LBMS transfers. But I'm waiting until I've another batch done so I can sit down and do all of the transfers together. 

Well done Phil! These lads will get you 45 points (with a little extra for the conversions). Now you're well within striking range of your 500 points!


  1. Now that's commitment great work lovely figures.

  2. Bonus points! yes! That's one whole less model I need to paint!

    Seriously. The weight on my shoulders has reduced (by 9%). Cheers Curt.

    9 down, 10 to go and a week to do it!

    P.S. They are Vikings. ;-)

  3. Great painting!!! Nice conversion work, bet your happy about the 9%

  4. Very nice, Phil, you are approaching the 500 points mark.

  5. Dedication to the cause , well done!
