Re: Frankish Command Base 1

The flag is not painted by yourself, yes? Yeah, it's an LBMS transfer. I'm currently painting up three armies; Anglo Danes, Franks and Early Byzantines. Due to time constraints I opted to hand paint the banners on one army only and stick to LBMS transfers for the rest. I simply don't have the time ...

Re: Frankish Command Base 1

Thanks Dave :) Is it just me and you on Fighting Talk these days? :| It’s certainly very quiet these days but it could be that more people like me are now using Facebook? I can post photos and comments to specific sites and I get a much better response than I ever did from my blog. Two, I think, sa...

Anglo Danish Casualty Markers

The last week was a its and bobs sort of week on the painting table. I finished a few pieces that were destined to hover around in perpetuity if they didn't get any attention so I'm happy overall More scholarly prattle and pictures on my blog here: https://justaddwater-bedford.blogspot.com/2020/11/a...

Frankish Command Base 1

It's been a week of putting together a lot of bits and bobs as well as waiting for some LBMS transfers to arrive, which they did, but are now sitting patiently in my "quarantine" pile :) I managed to get a couple of Disorder/Discouraged/Routing/Casualty Markers painted, glossed and matted down along...

Shieldwall Markers Experiment!

I've been messing around trying to create convincing markers for my Anglo Danes for when they go into Shieldwall........ I think I've finally nailed the correct size for the bases to number of mini's(?). I didn't want the markers to overwhelm the units. I hope I've hit the right spot? Many more pics...

Anglo Danish Huscarls/Fyrd Unit 2

The second unit is now complete and apart from some rough work trying to prise the miniature from their previously superglued bases I did get to paint up four or five extra mini's so not all was so stressful! There are a load of other images from different angles etc of the unit on my blog as well a...

Frankish Franks

My reasoning/excuse is simple..... those Justinian Byzantines have got to have someone to fight right? That doesn't quite explain m y recent foray back into my Anglo Danes but hey ho..... Mostly Wargames foundry with a smattering of Gripping Beast. You can find a ton of pictures from various angles ...

Anglo Danish Huscarls/Fyrd Unit 1

Over the past year, every now and again I've been rebasing my Anglo Danes. They have been in a seemingly perpetual state of having no bases, no filler, no texture, paint nor tufts. After a day of being knee deep in my studio on one of my famous tidying up jobs (yeah, it's worse then ever!) I had to ...

Re: Early Byzantine Skutatoi and Command Base Group Shots

Another great unit! How do you see this army’s character compared to the Late Imperial Romans of the 4th-5th Century? As with almost any ancient warfare/ancient armies question it is very difficult to say. I think it was Adrian Goldsworthy (?)who said wrotethe probably only know 10% of what there i...

Early Byzantine Skutatoi and Command Base Group Shots

I've been messing around a bit this morning. I took a few of shots of the Skutatoi Shieldwall with the Command Base and a couple of close ups of the Skutatoi on their own which will hopefully portray some of the dynamics of the unit as they work collectively in defence. More Pics of the Unit and the...
