Welsh War Band (Part 1)

IMG_1878

The very first figures I painted a group of 12 Bonnedig (Levi), armed with slings, one point for Saga.

I fell into the hobby when I was staying with my good friend and adversary Omer, whist down on my luck a few years back. He kindly gave me some Gripping Beast plastics to paint with him of an evening and introduced me to the game of Saga which would become a passion of mine.

I used his no nonsense approach to painting to get these guys on table and ready for battle quickly. No mucking about ! 

The were closely followed by two groups of 8 Priodaur (Warriors), two more points for my Saga war band.

Welsh Priodaur can be a real nuisance as they are armed with javelins. Especially when they use the terrain to their advantage. As Omer’s Viking,  Yomsviking, Norse Gael and Saxon War bands will all attest to. Omer hates our pointed sticks 😀

Exterminate

Some Daleks I have been working on.

A bit of science fantasy to throw into the mix 🙂

There have been a number of Dr Who stories involving Merlin and I am definitely intending to devise a scenario like this in a future game possibly of Dragon Rampant.

The figures were part of a give away with Dr Who magazine which I was lucky enough to pick up in bulk for 25p a packet second hand.

(These are the last few left that I kept for myself, the others have already been sold.)

Keen Whovians will notice they are the newer type of Daleks. From the later more modern series of Dr Who of recent years. I have however painted them more like the Daleks I knew and loved from my own childhood.

I used the cement ballast blocks out of an old washing machine for the photography background.
