The force at arms of Baron Gilbert de Corbin is as follows:
|The Baron his-self, and his loyal standard bearer|
|Valiant foot knights, being of the sacred number twelve|
|Can retainers be valiant? Well, this bunch certainly fight well under |
noble leadership, their number also being twelve. The billmen were all painted last week.
That's eleven figures in five days!!! Marvel at my productivity, mortals!!!
|Beauty and the Not-so-beautiful. A contrasting pair of enchanters, blurred by their intense magical auras|
and definitely not by the camera on my phone.
|"Xavier make cannon go BOOM! Xavier like cannon. Yeah-yeah-yeah!"|
|"Keep smiling, mes braves, we're meant to be 'merry' and if we don't look it, the Vicomte will get all irritable and have us tortured again..."|
|"I didn't vote for you!" Another twelve.|
|And the whole lot in one go.|
So, general and BSB on horseback, two wizards, one cannon and crew, twelve foot knights, twelve billmen, twelve peasants, and ten arquebusiers. Oh, and four cows. Not so many, but the largest painted force I've had for any game of anything, and I don't think we're going to run short of figures for the siege game!!!
I had hoped to get another rank of six billmen painted up to strengthen that unit (figures from Claymore Castings - highly recommended, but more on that in a future post), but I only got as far as this with them:
I'm a little disappointed but I just ran out of oomph at the end of term.
Now, to rootle out my flock, static grass, and tufts ready for the final task.
