Getting some Normans together

Post by Empire in the sun on Sat Oct 17, 2015 6:07 am

First batch double checked touched up and ready for a base



Second batch nearing completion, have to make some spears and then give the once over to tidy up the bumps, scratches and glue smudges.




Second hand figures, didn't realise they were a mix of Crusader (mostly Crusader) and Gripping Beast (2nd batch). Surprisingly I found the Crusader figures to be better quality as far as casting was concerned, near faultless a joy to paint.

Hi I am also working on some Normans that will use for SAGA but have sabot bases to transfer to Impetus - thinking of just a 300 point 28mm Norman Impetus army and have Gripping Beast figures.

I will probably paint the shields and wondered if anyone has a good website link for ideas on designs - obviously got the painted examples on Gripping Beast. Guess can also look at the flag transfers examples.

Normans are a new departure so interested to find out more.

Cheers Jez

I had a look at the LBM and Flags of War transfer sheets as well as googling Norman Shilds and then click on the images tab. Plenty to see including re-enactors who are usually pretty fussy about getting it right.
