My problem in not playing is I don't have really anyone around that is motivated enough to paint opposing forces. You would think living in a major metropolitan area this would be no problem. Apparently I need to move to the United Kingdom, of course it could be just perception on my part, but it seems they have there collective acts together when it comes to clubs and hobbies etc.
But I digress, what this post is really all about is my first figures completed. Yeah! I actually have begun painting them and have resolved to paint up not one army but two! Dammit if I can't get help in painting stuff up, I'll just paint them up myself and solo game if I have too! The Arthur period has been one of my favorites for awhile now (don't think the romanticized gobble-ly goop medieval bla bla bla version) and I can't wait to finish up my Romano-Brits, which by the way is what I started on. I've heard rumor that Gripping Beast is working on a Saga supplement for this period as well, so I based my Commander (Arthur of course, and on foot) as a Warlord. Can't see how it will hurt in the Dux system so I went for it. Here is some pictures of Arthur, and some of his Champion.
I didn't get to fancy and basically painted these close to the photos that Gripping Beast has on their website. Arthur's shield is a transfer from Little Big Men.
My champion was supposed to have a Little Big Men shield transfer but I completely botched it up and had to do this one by hand, which is copied from the one I destroyed. I don't think it turned out to badly. I am not the greatest at painting fiddly designs, but happy with the outcome.
I will be posting my other commanders, and the elite unit I completed later.
