Anglo-Saxon Thegns with axes for SAGA (5th Entry, 6th AHPC)

Anglo-Saxon Thegns with axes for SAGA (5th Entry, 6th AHPC)
Well this was my last post for this years Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. I have the next (and last batch) of 8 Anglo-Saxons for SAGA on my workbench right now, but since I spontaneously started a new job the other week on Wednesday (I guess that is what you call it when the project a start in May and then ask you if you could start in three days time), I guess I did not have the time to finish them before the Challenge ended. Actually they are still on the workbench, with the tournament I want to sue them for taking place next Saturday! :-O But alas, my original goal had been 250 points and I have more than doubled that with a grand total of 570, so who cares!

Anyway, this is another SAGA point of Thegns for my Anglo-Saxon army. Just like the last ones, these are pretty straight forward Gripping Beast plastics, with LBMS shield decals. The warrior with the blue shield is a slight conversion that I felt was required due to his un-combative pose, but that is it. Only the usual chainmail sculpted where the arms meet the torsos, painted, based and ready for combat.

I have to say I like the GB plastics. Good detail for plastics and lots of character in the faces one can work with. So I was glad to have done a lot of them this Challenge.

    Hello Burkhard.

    Firstly congratulations on the job. They can get in the way of things but they do have their benefits too! 😃

    More importantly … another great batch of figures. I quite like Mr blue shield of the “un-combative pose”. He looks like he’s just performed some feat of slaughter and is casually surveying the scene for another suitable victim.

    Salute

      Hi vP, first of all thanks for the congratulations. But see what it is doing to me… took me ages to find the time to reply! 😉

      Anyway… I am glad the conversion conveys that impression… that was what I was aiming for!

    Nice paintjob mate! I like the shield variations, very natural colors and yet striking to look at 🙂

      Thanks a lot… although the colour variation is courtesy of LBMS… I just slapped the decals on! 😉
