WIP on the Desk: Archers Part 2

Along with a few other warriors and some priests.  I'm making good progress on these this holiday weekend.  Still have all of the washes and metal work to do yet, but getting close.
 The Conquest Games archers are interesting to paint.  I like the miniatures but the repetition on the cloth gets a little tiring to do a lot of them.  They did a nice job on the areas around the waist, but the shoulder areas could use a bit more folds and relief.  Otherwise I like them.  The faces are pretty cool.
I put a few Foundry and Gripping Beast Vikings in the mix along with the Priests/Monks, just to break up some of the monotony.  Dig the striped pants.  The Perry Priest are really quite cool minis.
 Above and below are few closer shots of the Archers.  They will definitely be a nice addition to my forces.
Hopefully next time you see these they will be done.  Next on the desk will be some Gripping Beast Plastic Dark Ages slingers to further expand my forces.  After that likely the Saxons that I have built. 


  1. For further kitbashing and variation you can add the bowarms onto Gripping Beast "Dark age warrior". Use the upper arms from GB and lover arms or just the hands from CG.

    1. Oh yea, I have some kit bashes in mind. Note all of my archers, do not have any of the mail armor. I plan to make them into some Viking or Saxon characters. The other cool bit is the open hands and pointing hands. Those will be showing up somewhere as well.
