Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar - El Cid

A few extra shots I took of my El Cid model this morning.




Again, as mentioned in my previous post today, this sculpt is the Bee's knees. Can't wait to storm the tabletop and roll horribly with this guy leading the charge..

Pretty sure Im done painting and sporadically posting for the year so Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Cheers to all who've stopped by to check things out this year and all the best for 2017.





Saga Spanish Update #3 - 4 Points Complete!

Done! 4 Points Spanish Warband ready for SAGA: Crescent and Cross

I've hit my amended target to get these guys ready for the tabletop before Christmas. As a little bonus I added in the amazing El Cid figure from Gripping Beast. Its an amazing sculpt by Angel Terol, and is easily one of the best historical miniatures I've had the pleasure of throwing paint at.
The Warband consists of;
Warlord 
8 Caballeros
8 Mounted Jinetes
12 Levies w/ bow.


So here we are, the full 4 points following the mighty Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar into battle!

El Cid.





Jinetes

Keen as a bean to get some games in with these guys while I'm on holidays.
Cheers.

Saga Spanish Project Update #2

Here we are! Back with another update on my Spanish Saga Warband project. Well, things didnt exactly go to plan. I was hoping to smash out atleast a unit every week or so but as usual, life does life and wargaming went to the back of the line. Anyway, I'm on holidays now and have managed to finish off 8 Mounted Caballeros (hearthguard). I had started these sometime in November so they didnt take too much more to get over the line.

 As usual with Gripping Beast, nice clean sculpts make for easy work.



I've now just got 8 Mounted Jinetes (warriors) and the Warlord to go. I've already started the horses so will hopefully have the whole 4 points tabletop ready by Christmas!
