The last ones I assure you!

No more Ceorls, these are the last ones! These make up the last of the thirty two that I need. I divide them down into two units of ten and a third unit with twelve models. Combined with my Warlords dice and the dice from a unit of Thegns I get the maximum of six so I can effectively command he army and get to use my abilities to a maximum effect. Of course over the course of a battle I will be whittled down but as long as I get to use the abilities on the offensive I should be ahead in attrition.

I am making some decent progress on my Jömsvikings and I will start showing them off on Monday. I am trying to paint them to a higher standard as they came mostly unpainted. The problem with the Anglo-saxons is that they were pretty much already painted so I had to match my older and not quite as good techniques which I think I managed despite no longet having 90% of the colours needed.

  1. I know exactly how you feel with the Saxons. I started a warband last year and got bored with painting them pretty quickly. Mine were worse in some ways in that they were Wargames Factory, not brilliant sculpts, tedious to stick together. I managed 24 before I gave up. Having played Saxons 6 or 7 times, it's obvious that I do need numbers to perform well. So now I am thinking I may well emigrate and convert them to Anglo-Danes, I just need to add in a few Dane Axes, maybe a kite shield here or there. or maybe take the easy route and just buy some vikings! Looking forward to seeing yours!

    1. I got lazy in the end and took four Huscarls rather than twelve Levy, I just couldn't face doing more than that! I have been using the wrong names for stuff it seems now that I have read the book in more detail. What I have been calling Ceorls are infact Thegns and what I have called Gebur are really Ceorls.

  2. Nice looking shield work. Is the middle figure in the hood a GB, don't believe I've seen that one.

    1. He is a Gripping Beast model and came as part of the Anglo-Saxon army deal. I have a similar model with the hood down somewhere too.
