"We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune"

Fantasy tropes of the 80s (book and film), cod-medievalism and Monty Python's Holy Grail form the backbone of the way this project is developing. And how can there be such a project without some self-opinionated peasants?

Impossible! So here they are:

The standard "bases need to be drybrushed and grassed" comment applies - I'm going to do them all this weekend - but other than that I'm pretty pleased with the revolting fellows. They'll be fleeing from the encroaching hordes of poorly behaved creatures into Erny's citadel for safety in just a few weeks time!



  1. I recognise maybe four of them as Foundry ex-citadels as I've just finished painting mine as well, but I don't recognise the rest. Where are they from?

    The guy at the back left always cracks me up, he's got such a big smile on his face (although you can't really tell from that picture). He's got to have a story to tell. :)

    Lovely, smooth flesh tones by the way.

    1. Thanks, Peter, I always feel I struggle with getting from the base colour to the creamy pink of flesh so I'm chuffed it's worked!

      The peasants are all Foundry, I think, either from the ex-Citadel range explicitly or other Perry sculpts from the Hundred Year War range: http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/our-ranges/medieval/hundred-years-war/infantry/

  2. Great minds thin alike Rab:


    Lovely looking peasants. Wonder how they get on with their Germanic neighbors.

    1. Ah, dammit - I thought I was being so original! :)

      I think your incredibly characterful scum would recognise mine as being part of the international brotherhood of the land-working classes and start singing songs about a red flag together...
