Re: Shieldwall Markers Experiment!

I've been messing around trying to create convincing markers for my Anglo Danes for when they go into Shieldwall........ Great looking bases! That additional segment gets across the idea nicely.

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?

Re: Ottoman Project

I've never liked Tufecki infantry. Always thought they looked weird and not very Turkish. Every miniatures range seems to have them (Warfare, Old Glory, TAG...) but I have never been able to find a reliable reference for them beyond the early 17th Century. I was interested then to see them illustrat...
