Happy New Year! From All of Us


All of us...Medieval infantry types, that is. Finished the first group of figures for 2011. These are the Curteys spearmen and Old Glory crossbowmen. Here they are ranked up in three units along with some earlier completed Old Glory spearmen and crossbowmen. They're formed up for close combat with the crossbowmen in the last rank of their mixed units.
These are pictures of the figures just completed. Curteys spearmen up first. Since these guys have generic shield patterns, they can also be used in my HYW French army as Voulgiers. 

Next, the Old Glory crossbowmen from their Mongols in Europe range (thanks for the correction, Scott). For the three mixed units, I've also used Old Glory crossbowmen from their Crusaders and Saracen range.
Best wishes to all in 2011. May your gaming be safe, sound and productive!

  8. Dang! How do you do that so fast? I'm falling behind, still not having applied anything except black primer paint on my mounted troops. Oh, by the way, the crossbowmen you got from me are from the OG Mongols range and go with the spearmen you painted up a year or so ago.
    Happy New Year!

  10. They're a great looking bunch of figures Dean. I really like some of the Old Glory lines - I reckon some of their ECW are almost as good as Perrys (and I'm a self-acknowledged Perry's nut!) Your knights and now these foot are spectacular, hope to see a few posts with them in battle! Happy New year to you mate.

    Cheers,
    Doc

  12. They look great!

    I especially like the earthiness of the armour & clothing contrasted with the striking shields.

  13. Thanks! I have to admit, they do look a lot brighter and more colorful than I had expected. Oh well, maybe it might help confuse the enemy. Regards, Dean
