Hello again, Chris here to talk a little bit more about my Dux Britiannarum project.
For those how aren't already playing Dux, I'll give a little background on the opposing forces I am attempting to paint. The warbands consist of 38 figures for the Saxons, and 44 figures for the Britons. These each include 1 warlord, 2 nobles, and 1 champion. The remaining figures are broken down into groups of 6, with exception of missle troops which are composed of 4 men. For me, at least, this is quite a bit of painting to be done, but I persevere!
I have a couple of pictures to share with you. The first is a group shot of my Briton standard bearer, my Saxon champion, and a Merlin-type fellow.
These are all Gripping Beast figures, with LBMS transfers for the banner and shields. The Merlin-type will serve no immediate use in the pursuit of Dux Brit completion, but he could be useful for a game of Song of Arthur and Merlin. The LBMS transfers are great, helping to improve my mediocre paint job.
The next picture is of 4 unarmored Briton spearmen. Not the most exciting figures, but a necessary component of any Arthurian warband.
Again, Gripping Beast figures, with LBMS transfers.
I hope to have more to share with you soon, though I'm a bit stuck on the Saxons I'm currently working on. I should have them done before my next post. In addition to miniatures, I have been collecting some terrain for use with Dux Britiannarum, including a set of buildings. I'll try to have pictures of these to share as well.
Thanks for your kind attention, and until next time, carry on gaming!
