After having to repair a couple of spears, I finally got my Anglo-Saxons ready for dipping. Here they are just before I dipped them. 




And finally, the Warlord and his Bannerman...

The latest on the Anglo Saxon Project

I put shield decals on most of the "Hearthguard" models. Now I need to paint the shields for the "Warrior" units and do a few final touch ups around the shield rims.  At that point everything will be ready for "The Dip".

A few days ago, I was digging through some boxes of old models and came across this one:  Matsu Tsuko from the Lion Clan in the Legend of the Five Rings miniatures game.  She was good twenty years ago when I painted her, but I think she could use some touch-ups and highlights.

Yet another project on my list...

Thought I'd upload some pics with the latest progress on my Anglo-Saxons.  Most of the big color areas are on.  Down to doing small details now.  Next will be dry brushing silver on the chain mail, adding some highlights to the clothing, shield decals, and then... The Dip.

Last night was Modelin' Monday.  My desert Tomahawks are almost ready for decals.  I haven't decided whether to do the 112 Squadron sharks' mouths or not, though everyone tells me I should.

Meanwhile, my Anglo-Saxons for SAGA are progressing.  Got a second coat of red on the Warlord and his Hearthguard.

I'm working on a new Anglo-Saxon war band for SAGA.  While I was back in Missouri visiting the folks, my old college pal, Duane Nelson, graciously contributed some warriors to my effort.

I have the warlord with banner bearer, 12 hearth guard, and 16 warriors, ready for primer coat so far.  Next will be the levies — 24 of 'em.  Quite the effort.

I've been working on my 251 models for a while now — I do a little at a sitting as I get time.  The three on the left are a 251d modification I made of a print and build kit from

The one on the upper right is the 251c kit straight from the print file with my own modification of open rear doors.  I find my paper AFVs fight just as hard as the plastic and resin ones do.  They have the added advantages of being cheaper yet more durable.
