I’ve finally got around to adding the army pages in for my Early and Later Hebrews which I finished painting a while ago. The Early Hebrews don’t have an enemy yet so at some stage I will paint the figures I need to convert my Early Bedouins to an earlier version of the list.
Speaking of deserts, my daughter has been helping me with redoing my desert terrain: an oasis, dunes, and rough.
Otherwise I’m working on a Middle Anglo Saxon army, mainly so I can use the figures in games of Dux Bellorum, but also as an enemy for my Sub Roman British. I remember reading somewhere that the Middle Anglo Saxons were an unpopular army in DBA. It’s certainly not the sort of army you could expect much success with in a competition. But it should be fine against its historical opponents – or at least ‘historical’ against them, I imagine the Welsh would beat them if they stayed on their hills. I bought a pack of Saxon warband from Magister Militum a while back and didn’t really appreciate how good the figures were. I got nine figures (strange as they are sold in packs of eight) and they are in nine poses. I’ll certainly be getting a command pack for them. I’m just making do with keeping one stand recognisable at the moment but the Magister Militum command pack includes a king with a face mask helmet and a dragon standard, so they are a ‘must’ for me. I think the Saxons that Magister Militum sell are former Navigator Miniatures figures but they are tucked away in the ‘Classical’ section of the Magister Militum website.
