In 2013 I'm looking into working on my 'Saga' forces. I've been using dismounted Rohirrim as proxy Anglo-Danes and this has to change. I'm also going to get a Viking force- for me, Viking raids are what the Dark Ages are all about. And those Conquest Normans are so neat. And then there's the Welsh...
I'm really waiting to see what Gripping Beast will do with their generic unarmoured warrior plastic kit rumoured to be coming in April,
but here are some trials using GB plastics:
|4 Saga Points of Anglo-Danes. Not Rohan, no sir.|
|Anglo-Dane Hearthguard with Dane axes|
I really like the GB plastic figures. I'm making plastic warlords for both factions, and banner bearers. I decided to go with slottabases (rather than the flat discs which are in vogue) to match my other 28mm stuff.
I'll go into more how-to detail later in the year when I get more figures, but as you can see I've gone for some aesthetic choices with my factions. Limited colour palettes, organic vs. geometric shield patterns, and somewhat muted tones and battle damage.
