The dark age archers by Gripping Beast

IMG_3394This is the latest addition to my collection. The dark age archers boxed set by Gripping beast . There are 30 figures in the box . 3 figures on one sprue, 10 identical sprues. Here is a picture of the sprue back:

IMG_3392and front:

IMG_3391As you can see these are complete figures except for the head . So not much for scratchbuilders but if you want a lot of archers all losing an arrow this is the box for you . The heads are quite nice all bare headed so can be used for all kind of figures you can use them for the dark age warriors box by GB and vice versa .

Hope that helps in deciding to get a box or not . One last word though the right arms are not in a correct archers stance but thats only recognisable  for people who do some archery themselfs.

Next parcel in the post will be the Scandinavian  Infantry plastic boxed set by Fireforge .

The Glover Knights banner bearer

This is the Glover Knight unit banner bearer. I designed the banner differently from my other banners this time. In the books the banners of the sworn Houses are always or at least very often described as showing the Sigil of the house they are sworn to above the own house sigil. Here it is House Stark above House Glover. This makes for a bit of variety on the field of battle later on.

The figure was build with parts from Perry and Fireforge . As can be seen here:

And more pictures of the knight:

And the complete unit (missing one knight, which is not painted yet):

A knight of House Woods

Another bannerman of House Glover is House Woods. As there is no description of the Sigil of House Woods in the books I made one up. 6 trees on a field white over red. The figure itself was build from a Perry light horse body and arms and a fireforge head and shield.

The unit so far:

A Glover household Knight

Here is the next knight for my House Glover force. A strait build from the Perry WotR light cavalry box set with the addition of a fireforge shield. The sigil is a transfer by Schildschmie.de with I overpainted.

Knight of the House Forrester

Here is another bannerman of House Glover. A knight from House Forrester. The Heraldic device , or Sigil, was designed by me as there is no description in the books. I tried to make visible that he is a Glover bannerman by using red and white ( the colors of House Glover) on this model too.

The model is a mixture of fireforge and Perry parts. The body consists of legs and lower torso from fireforge and upper torso from Perry. As you can better see in the unpainted picture here:

Here are more pictures of the finished knight:

and together with a House Bole Knight:

The complete Glover Infantry unit

Here is the finished unit for Dragon Rampant. It will be fielded as a mixed unit so is able to shoot and fight in close combat.

Next I have to finish the Glover light horse unit and then I will do a mixed unit of House Brax, alas with crossbows instead of bows, as a reinforcement for my Lannister army. After that I will do some more scenery to get into gaming at last. If you like what you see feel free to leave a comment or a like!

 

 

And the last Glover bowman

This is an interesting figure as I used a fire forge sergeants body and Perry arms and head. I did this to get a bit more variety into the unit.
