Merry Christmas to all. In my most recent order from Baccus I went ahead and got some trial packs of the the new Early Medieval Norman line. I painted up the Norman archers and based them in a more 'open order' than the later English bowmen. This helps to differentiate them from afar, and also makes them usable as generic skirmishers for other armies/eras.
The newer sculpts are much cleaner than the older stuff I have been doing this year and were very easy to paint. I simply applied a Army Painter Leather Brown primer and then randomly applied from a series of earthtones from the old old Polly-S fantasy range. I followed up with a brown wash and then highlights with the same paints.
Next up in this range will be a group of charging Norman Knights.
