As we like to say on another message board I belong to: "Pics or it didn't happen."
Well it did happen.
I have just added six elements of Frankish/Ottonian knights to the collection of Dark Age armies. While waiting for the Graeco-Bactrian order to arrive I stumbled on two packs of OG cavalry and decided to paint these for practice as the Graeco-Bactrian are all cavalry.
Tomorrow I plan several games so I will take pictures between battles.
At the moment I'm trying to finish a 25mm Pictish army, having just finished the figures for a 28mm Gutian. At some point I've got to bite the bullet and make a decision on how I'm going to finish the bases!
The Ottonian knights are added to the Dark Age collection of “armies-in-waiting”. The collection lack dismounted Bavarian/Swabian knights with round shield, most manufacturers produced these with tear drop shield.
