Last month or so has been pretty busy, been working on my car, karts, house and other things, but I did clean up and assemble a whole bunch of Romans, as well as a bunch of Saxon Miniatures, Saxon Warlord line.
As you can see in the pic of the Romans, there are a lot of the legionaries assembled, all of which are Warlord Games models. After seeing the Victrix model preview, I kind of wish that I would have waited, but I did get a really good buy on these off of Ebay, about a 1/3 of the price of the brand new army box. I also have a couple of RAFM onagers that I assembled a crew to man them from these plastics and a couple more scorpions. Also as you can see in the pic while I was watching something on TV, I decided to fix the pose with the arrow by it on a lot of these, by standing them up more straight. More on that conversion later.
Below is a pic of the Saxon Warlords, actually only a portion of the Warlords, as I pulled out a couple to include in my early crusades army that has a sort of Norman feel to it. Also buried in there is a Warlord Games Celt that I converted to add to my Viking horde. I’ll have a more detailed review of them later and size comparison shots with other manufacturers. Some of the models are very nice. A few of them have some casting hick-ups with smoothness in the capes that need to be filed and sanded. No real mold lines problems and flash to speak of. I do like the Saxon Miniatures’s Saxons. My Saxon army is one of the next ones that I have primed and ready for paint, these will be added as characters and such.
