I've been working slowly on this commission but they're getting done. These 12 crossbowmen are the latest figures.

Four more mounted sergeants armed with crossbows. I'm really considering adding some dirt stains to the end of cloaks, for medieval soldiers they look too clean!

I recently took on a fairly large Fireforge commission and this is just the start. These are the first two Mounted Sergeants with crossbows I've completed. I like the Fireforge kits, I understand they're not for everyone but the figures and the cost are great. I'll do the bases when I've completed all six figures.

Needless to say my blog has taken a backseat to real life events. Back in 2013 I went through Accelerated Officer Candidate School for the Arkansas National Guard and this past summer I attended my Basic Officer Leadership school as well as loads of teacher training for my day job.
Since I returned we have been trying to find a new house so many of my models and paints have been packed up. My awesome wife bought me a new painting table for Christmas so I've been able to get back to some painting recently.
No pictures to share at this time, but I'm working on more of the Fireforge Foot Sergeants. I picked up a box of Gripping Beast Vikings and Warlord Games Celts to make some fantasized Viking Beserkers.
I've had some ideas for a large scale fantasy skirmish game floating around in my head for a while and finally wrote them down. I hope to get plenty of play testing done over the next few months and then I'll share them with anyone who would like to try them out.
My hopes for 2015 are to get plenty of painting done - this will include more High Elves which need archers and cavalry and some more Fireforge miniatures - and plenty of play testing of my rules I wrote for me and my kids.

Herculiani seniores. I think the bearer carrying the Eagle is my favorite out of this unit of figures.

I just received a box Foot Sergeants from Fireforge Games in the post today. I put together 24 of them to represent the household guard of a rich family. They're armed with spears, swords, and crossbows. The other half will represent a less wealthy family and will be armed with spears, axes and maces, and bows or I will use them all in zombie conversions....I haven't decided yet. I have previously assembled a box of Fireforge Templars on foot and these Foot Sergeants are a much better kit. The weapons are better size and the arms do not go out at crazy angles.
