Well, you can see the Handsworth Volunteers posing in the last update - they need varnishing, and I'd like to touch up a couple of places, but I'm happy that they're done.
And now, for your delectation, a unit of Normans!
|That "they're all called Norman" joke might be weak, but it's basically compulsory|
The more eagle-eyed and Saga-rules-aware of you will have spotted that there's actually nine models here, and a unit need only be eight. There just happened to be an extra one on the desk as I was painting and he got swept along in the crowd. You'll also notice that so far they aren't based - that and a little more shield detail is all that remains on them, but I'm pleased with how they're looking now.
This leaves me just the wild card to do, and I already have plans there. With half the month left, things are looking good, but! A note of jeopardy has been introduced in the form of a hastily arranged business trip to Los Angeles next week (it's a hard job but someone has to do it, etc. etc.). This will cost me two weekends and all of the evenings next week, as well as forcing me to rearrange a club game, so things become a little harder again.
I'm enrolled in the Wargamers' Free Company Saga campaign with the Normans, and have a VBCW game planned for the beginning of March, so I'll have to turn something around. Stay tuned to see how I do.
In the meantime though, I'm feeling very good about the new year's resolutions! Don't think I've broken any just yet...
