What I've been up to

Not too long ago I received a large order from Black Tree Design for my early crusades/fantasy setting.

They are mostly 2nd Crusade spearmen and knights, Norman spearmen and knights, 100yr war swordmen, and a few dark age Saxons and Vikings thrown in to add variety.  I plan on giving every knight 1 -4 followers in the same livery.  I also ordered/converted 20 peasants, some armed some not.  After all, I need someone for my orcs/goblins to raid :)

However, not long after I took these pictures I lost my painting mojo.  I cleared my desk and grabbed 6 figures to paint which seemed to work.  Please excuse the blurry photos.


  1. Very nice job on those. The wood grain on the spear shaft is particularly impressive.

  2. Thank you. I'm always on the fence on if I should paint the wood grain or not. I've seen some great looking figures with no wood grain painted, but I've always painted wood this way so that's what I end up doing :)
