Another 2013 goal checked off, I have painted all of my 6mm Norman figures. My intent with these is to use them for both the 1st Crusade and possibly some Sicilian scenarios. I admit that the greatest challenge with these was doing the shields. I probably put more effort than is really warranted for the scale, but it seemed necessary at the time.
The first set of shields left me spent, so for the second unit I bunted and went with the "Hollywood Crusader" motif
They don't look to bad from afar, and I finally go the rhythm of the shields after the first 50-60....
The command packs also provide a nice diversity of models:
|Army General Stands|
|Barons and Knights|
|Two lonely crusaders|
After doing these I still have 5 commanders left over and some mounted knights, but I will hold those until I opt to pursue the Crusader project further.
The only remaining issue is rebasing my Norman Archers
These were the first figs I did, and I hadn't decided on a desert-scrub basing scheme yet. They look slightly out of place with the army as a whole
Overall, these are excellently sculpted minis rank near, but below, the Samurai in my list of Baccus 6mm Ranges.
