Mr Grant's Term 2 Break - Part 1

Good afternoon,

Well, I've finally done it. I've finished another HOTT army! Behold, my Early Germans!



The basic idea behind this army is that these dudes are the remains of the Roman revenge over the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, with the Hordes being all the ghosties of the Early Germans that the Romans took revenge on.

The Dragon was just something the Germans found deep in the forest and convinced to fight alongside them!

I've also pulled together a Rider element from bits and bods I had lying around so's to swap out the lurkers.


Specifically, a HaT Gaul, a Revel Gaul, a Revel Anglo Saxon, a Zvezda Persian horse and two HaT Alexander's Companion horses, plus some old Esci Napoleonic cav legs from ages back!

So there you go.






I have another five Warband elements almost completed to make either a DBA II/47(d) Batavi army in 69AD, a II/47(e) Other Batavi or II/47(e) Cherusci armies.

Sweet!

Nick

  3. Looking good... love the concept, and the ghostly warband.... why not a Roman equivalent with airfix romans painted in same style?

    Could be a use for the boxes of Airfix romans (some still unpainted) that lie deep wihtin the bowels of my games room!!!

    Kind regards

  7. Brilliant stuff, Nick - love the bloke with the horned helmet! Are these dipped or did you use a wash/shade?
    Cheers!

    Ummm, which dude in the horned helmet?! The Warband General? He's layered. Actually, they all are.
