The start of a new series of posts for this blog detailing the progress on several related projects in different scales.
Firstly, will be the Ayyubid army of Saladin for ADG in 15mm. Figures being a mix of Black Hat Miniatures (Gladiator Miniatures), Essex and Minifigs.
Next will follow the Late Crusaders again in 15mm with the figures coming from Black Hat Miniatures.
In between both of these will be some Crusaders and Saracens in 28mm. Undecided yet which way to go with these although there is a fair chance that this will involve a military order steeped in both history and myth.
The title of these posts is linked to the central theme and location for the armies and a hommage to an old favourite by Magnum:
Day 16 in the #30days30miniatures painting challenge and the Warlord for the Romano British SAGA warband is finally completed.
The figure is from Gripping Beast and is a favourite from that range. When based he will have two different stand, the first and main stand will have a horn blower. The second will allow companions to be added as per the Warband rules.
To follow there will be the start of a hearth guard unit on foot and the horn blower.
