Light Horse for Everyone!

Well… at least the Picts and Normans…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

These are some Light Horse for my Picts. I know one of the figures is from The Foundry.

The other three I got in a trade. From the look of them I might have guessed Crusader Miniatures…? maybe...? but I can’t find them on their website… So probably not… Anyone know where they came from?

These Light Horse are for the Norman army. They are from Old Glory.

Last night I decided to take stock of where I’m at, in terms of what I need for the next Wargames Weekend (more on that shortly) and realized I have about 339 foot and 25 mounted to paint… That will finish off the Normans, Anglo-Saxons/Danish, Irish, Welsh, Scotts, Picts and a second Viking army…. With just under 20 weeks to go, that’s about 20 figures per week… Easy… so far this year I’ve been averaging 23.

(I will do the second Viking army last – that’s 76 foot right there, if I don’t get it done it’s no big deal – I’ve already got one and Gary’s half finished his… a third would be fun… but… Anyway without them it drops the per week quota to 16). There is also a week Amanda has off in December and I could potentially get a lot done then.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Despite the need to get it on with the Dark Ages stuff…. the next stuff up will be three stands of generic medieval axe-wielding Blade (for a Generic Medieval HOTT Army) and a couple stands of 18th Century Grenadiers…? The figures are painted; I just have to finish basing them.

After that… well… there are some 18th Century light infantry, artillery and crews still on the work bench (Two Cannon and one Jäger will finish up an army of British – then I can try the DBA extension for the Horse and Musket era – although, admittedly, I don’t actually have very many “horse”… ).

After THAT there are more Vikings and Normans ready to roll right off (and some Descent minis…).


  1. I like the Picts alot. Lovely plaid work!

  2. Second that comment on the plaid. It's awesome.

    That's a mountain of figures to paint, but I look forward to hearing how the campaign goes.

  3. Apologies for the 'me too', but..

    Well done on the plaid!
