Lion Rampant V

Progress has slowed slightly this week, but I put that down to work which has been very busy and left me to knackered at nights for much painting. But I still managed to finish 12 more figures for my retinues. First up is the 3 extra foot men at arms required for my Royalist retinue. The figures are the excellent Fire forge Templar infantry boxed set. I did use a shield transfer from GW to make the faction leader stand out.

Next up was the remaining 9 foot sergeants to complete a unit.As these guys are more heavily armoured than my previous sergeants I will be upgrading them to veterans for the games.

Next up for this retinue I will have a unit of archers, once again I will be using the old plastic figures from GW which I feel fit in quite well, also picked up 30 of them for a fiver on EBay. So far 6 of these are done and I will post pictures in a later post once all finished.

So what's next, well I should be at York on Sunday and I'm hoping to pick up a couple more boxed sets, this time mounted sergeant at arms and possibly some Templar's. I will also keep my eye out for some peasants and poorly armed figures as I have decided that the fourth retinue will be based upon outlaws (Robin Hood?)

Nicely done Neil.

For the peasants/outlaws, you might find the Gripping Beast "Dark age Warriors" box useful as they are unarmoured. You might need to do some head swaps for a more medieval look.
