Meet the Normans - Part 1

It's been a very long time since I posted here and I am going to try and revive this blog a little bit as I try to expand my gaming beyond the Cold War a little bit more.  So here's the new me!

I really like the concept of SAGA (hey - I'm a late adopter) but have only had the chance to play it a couple of time and that was several years ago.  From that experience - and the experience of visiting Bayeux and see the Bayeux Tapestry, I had to collect Normans with the aim of also collecting Anglo-Danes at some point in time.

So I bought a few of the Conquest Games plastic figures and some Gripping beast archers and crossbowmen.  Over the next few posts I show off what I've done so far - starting with a group of 8 Warriors made from Conquest Games Norman Infantry:

I actually really like these figures.  They are easy to put together, easy to pose, easy to paint, take the "dip" method well, and the shield transfers work really well.

So there they are.  More soon
