New boys awaiting painting, these are the Saxon King pack from Black Tree Design; nice set. I've given the harpist some more trouser like leggings and the king figure has had his crown removed replaced with some hair - he will represent Earldorman Rodor out of his fighting gear.

A mix of figs finished off in a session yesterday - mostly Gripping Beast with a couple of Dixon and Redoubt; for a change I tried a bit of shading on faces/hands using dilute brown wash ( I bought a sheet of standards some time back - I think from Redoubt - from which I cut out the one shown)
A closer look at the archer ...
The above are the last ( of the currently planned) major additions to Saxon forces; there will be some more oddments. I'm looking to add some more 'personality' figures and have a small project in mind to model the characters from Noggin the Nog.

I wanted to do soemthing a bit different with it so I based it with some hurdle fence pieces from the Games Workshop fence/wall set to make an enclosure; plus some plastic wood to blend it into the base ...
