A: A village to plunder and pillage, that's what!
|Actual Saxon Village replica somewhere in England.|
A few weeks back before Mag-Con 3 I called Willy (LTL Dad) Monday morning (as an added goad and incentive to myself) to let him know that I was starting on a 'top secret project' and will be completed by that Saturday of Mag-Con 3.
|Again using scrap foam pieces (pink and blue insulation foam and styrene) as my core structure with applied balsa wood for the molding and doors.|
|I used Teddy bear fur as my thatching (thank you, Man Cave!). This particular color would've work just fine in a pinch but since I had a bit more time I knew that it needed some work to achieve the look I wanted.|
|Viking Rune Stones from none other than Fenris Games!|
Mounting them on some left over Flames of War medium bases, they're ready for priming and painting.
I glued a washer on the bottom of the bases for the added weight.
|Churro, here, is shown for scale and the fact that he's a camera hog!|
|Ditto goes for this APE Grunt.|
|A Dark Age subdivision any chief or thegn would be proud of.|
|The doors are applied on the surface and are not operable. In my earlier and foolish youth I would've made hinges to make the doors swing but since time was of the essence that idea went out the... window (sorry)!|
|I'll post an exclusive on my Vikings, I promise. Problem is, they're worse than those danged Goblins in terms of scheduling since they're always gone... ahem... a Viking!|
|Along with the buildings and runestones, I added my carpet tiles for the plowed fields along with my scratch built haystacks. Also if you click and zoom in you'll notice a couple of anachronistic items that would've caused havoc in this battle.|
|The action continues as Willy's Grenadiers advance! 'Vive l'Empereur!'|
|I also got to run my own Legere unit from Willy's collection.|
