In harness, and ready for action

I'm a happy geek! I got my first base of English dismounted Men at Arms / Knights / whatever you want to call them completed and based tonight (thanks, Jet, for the basing advice).

It's late and real world work is going to be heavy going tomorrow, so that's it for now, I just wanted to show off my handiwork. Not perfect by any means, but for a first go, and as a gaming piece, I'm pretty chuffed. Just another couple of hundred to paint!

These are Corvus Belli miniatures and are 15mm scale, based for Impetus.

From the front:

and an crossbow bolt's eye view:

A little bizarre, perhaps, but my favourite is the trumpeter; I really like the linen colour I got on his coif.


  1. First of all, my pleasure on the bases, not that my method is particularly unique.

    And the unit looks really damn good. Too bad I'm working on so many projects. I can't wait to take another stab at my guys. Your army shall look very sweet!


  2. Thank you for the kind words; I've admired your painting since I stumbled across your blog, so that's put a smile on my face :)


  3. Very nice unit, and great painting.

    looking forward to seeing more.
