I finally managed to get the first of my Saga army onto the painting table. This is something of a first for me as it is my first ever 28mm figure, first Gripping Beast miniature and first Dark Ages figure of any kind. Although the army I have to paint is Anglo-Danish, this figure is a Saxon warlord. I've painted him to look quite important, with bejewelled scabbard and sword hilt as well as gold trimmed clothing to suggest he is a person of high rank, perhaps an exiled Saxon noble or even a pretender to the throne of a Saxon kingdom. I used Vallejo paints and varnish on the figure.
Overall I'm pretty pleased with the way he's turned out. Now I just have to work out how to mass produce figures to get multiple units painted up. This has also given me the confidence to paint up the Warlord Games ECW Battalia that I received as a Christmas present last year.
Thanks for looking!
