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. My only thought was, when would they not be in shieldwall? (Running away or marching onto the battlefiel...

Re: TYW Rules?

Although written for the ECW I would imagine you could use Clarence’s rules for the TYW. I’ve been adapting them for the 16th century and had some great games with them. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2z9Y0PeMN7TMjVmOGU3NDItMmYzZC00Y2RiLTg1YjItNjRhNGQxNDRkZTlm/view?hl=en&fbclid=IwAR25soYcPKZA3S-...

TYW Rules?

I have a feeling that this question might well have popped up before! With the release of the 1898's Miniatures Spanish lovely TYW range I find myself inexorably drawn to the 'period'. So, my questions would be (For 28mm): 1/ What rules are you using? 2/ Why? What advantages do they have over other ...

Superb painting and the colours seem so warm.

Great stuff. Phil
Thanks Phil.

Rather counterintuitively if you use an off white to lighten colours you tend to get a warmer and less stark highlight.

Next Anglo Danish Unit (Mixture) Further Ranks

Another set of eight Anglo Danish Huscarls and Fyrd complete for the fourth unit. Three more units to and 12 bases of skirmishers to go but they will be on hold for a while as I am going to be digging back into my Early Byzantines. It has been roughly eight days since they received a coat of gloss v...

Footsore Anglo Danes- Next Unit on the Way!

I just had to buy these Footsore Miniatures Matthew Bickley Anglo Danish sculpts just as soon as they were available. The sculpts are just so dynamic and full of life; they have the actual appearing as of in the maelstrom of melee. Matthew has the are ability of capturing movement/acts of violence l...

Anglo Danish Huscarl Fyrd Unit Three & Two command Vignettes

The third unit on what will be a seven or eight unit army (with plenty of room for more as well as Norse Allies!) It's been great fun mixing and matching the miniatures in the units, most of which contain about four or five different manufacturers. There are a load of images and the usual waffle on ...

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 ...
