Ha! April Fool! I actually suck.
My targets for April were to paint my Sword Dancer cavalry for Very British Civil War, build some Sword Dancer infantry, and paint a unit for Saga.
As I've already posted, I did the unit for Saga:
I also painted Alan the horse:
I put together the Sword Dancer infantry (I like how these have come out, especially the sniper! More on them in future I think.):
But despite starting them, I didn't get the Sword Dancer cavalry done:
I just didn't get into doing these. I'll try again for April I think, but at the moment I'm mostly in a Saga frame of mind. I'm keen to get my Normans done, before they take to the field in the club Saga campaign.
I did do a wildcard piece though - the warlord for my Normans. This is the William the Bastard model from Gripping Beast, and it's a great miniature. Really easy to paint too, the details stand out nicely. Just needs the base edging doing, the rest of the model was still wet when I took the photo so I left that off.
And, just as a little extra piece, I did this casualty marker (needs some ink to finish it off though):
I didn't get as much time as I normally have for painting this month. With a baby on the way in September, and as of last weekend an offer on our house meaning we need to find a new one, that's not going to improve for April.
So, I need some new targets. Since they need to be simple, I'll go for just finishing off the Sword Dancer cavalry, and painting another unit of Normans - hearthguard this time.
