Knights with no name

In between putting together more troops for the WSS and Napoleonics, I have been slowly going through lead mountain . This time I decided to finish off some fantasy figures that I have had lying around for too many years to count. Now these guys have been used in the days when I played WHFB 3rd edition and though it shames me now, yes I used unpainted figures. So now it was time for a little re painting on some and a first lick of paint for the majority. The figures are a mix of old GW, including pre-slotta bases, some Burgundian foot knights from Essex and a couple of figures from Front Rank.

Rather small host
Mounted Knights
These Knights were the multi part guys that GW brought out on the horrible plastic horses. Sometime in the past I upgraded them to armoured horses. I do have 3 more of these guys but their lances are broken and one is missing his legs. Will keep an eye on EBay.

Billmen
Foot knights
Archers
It's not a very rounded force but back in the day before army list I had units of Dwarves and Ogres added as well as some Norman Knights in a proxy role. In the future I may purchase a box of the Perry WOTR range as they will fit in nicely, also help boost the archer unit and fill out the Billmen. Well back in the box these guys will go for now.

Nice and it's always fun to revisit old armies.

Very nice work there Scotty! I am doing much the same thing this year. A mix of GW, Front Rank, Essex and Perry plastics!
