Harold’s Saxon Army
Posted by chicagoterrainfactory in Hail Caesar, painting, wargaming on June 30, 2016
Harold’s Saxon army from my Adepticon game back in March. Played in 2 ranks each, these figures gave me two divisions with a unit of Huscarls, two units of Coerls (and a small unit of archers not pictured here). Most figures are Gripping Beast with the exception of the commander in purple with horn, which is from FootSore.
I need to thank my friend John, these were originally his figures which he gifted to me as part of his hobby clean out last year. Having all these figures based and base coated saved me a huge amount of time when getting ready for Adepticon.
Rather than the lighter shades of my Crusader/Ancients armies, I chose to go with a darker/wetter looking ground effect. Bases are rimmed with Bittersweet Chocolate with a Raw Sienna top coat, then flocked with pasture green grass.
