Some Swedes for the Great Northern War

I finished two more units of Swedes for the GNW- Maurice project. These are Strelets, we have one unit of heavy horse in cuirass, and a unit of foot including a base of pike. Strelets are less refined than Zvezda, but they are very interesting to paint. Every pose is unique and well-animated, the detail while coarse, is also quite deep or raised, which makes them quite fun to paint.

El Cid complete

The last unit for my October Games Day is a squad of Christian militia crossbowmen, I now have ~2500 points per side for the big game.


I also did a few Celtic chieftains for a WAB game next week. These guys are great, real characters:

And I am very proud to present the first few models (GW LOTR we picked up at a swap meet) painted by my daughter Sasha (age 9). Her favorite is Arwen. We also played through the four intro scenarios in Mines of Moria and she successfully won them all!

I have just a few peones and jinetes left to finish.
