15mm Savage Northmen Cavalry........


.....from the north and Copplestone Castings!

Lots painted but blogging is becoming a little harder to achieve lately but anyway let's be getting on.......

These are my generic barbarian scum forces for Dragon Rampant, either two units of six or a large unit of twelve hence the two standards.........

These barbarians from the North will have infantry, bears, wolves and giants in their ranks......

A tidal wave of steel and claw.......                    






First time using a snow effect too..........

  4. Great cover photo, your new dominion?
    Copplestone's are awesome. I have them in 28mm. Nice detail of the snow. The whole unit is impressive.

  7. You sure know how to pick them, my General. Perhaps your Magnificence would be pleased to utilize them as security around the Franonian Palace pictured in the banner above. Hail Franonia!

    1. Nope, I got it for About One billion gagillion fafillion shabadabalo shabadamillion shabaling shabalomillion yen from UNESCO. Problems started straight away..they said double glazing was out of the Question and threw a hissy fit when I mentioned adding Electric Garage doors. Still, the winecellar is (was) well stocked and kite flying is a doddle.

    2. That´s why I went for the double glazing and odd that you Mention bovines. The local farms all breed cattle which, when dried out do burn quite well so you get a decent Steak and a roaring fire all in one.

    4. We did but we had to stop due to complaints from the guests. They weren´t so happy with having to carry thier combined firewood/Dinners up the stairs. TBH, it´s amusing watching a Group of slighlty sunburnt and drunk tourists trying to drag and push a disgruntled fresian up the hillside but after the first few times it gets offputting...and there´s the "accident" which due to the ongoing insurance Claim can´t be mentioned here. It´s enough to say that Nothing was mentioned in the operating Manual About weight restrictions when operating a stenna stairlift.
      We tried sheep but they are few and far between around here, are a bugger to catch and don´t have the calorific value of a bovine.

  9. Sometimes I want to praise the quality of drawing. Sometimes - praise miniatures. Everything is perfect here!

    1. They're easy enough to paint out of most available cavalry!

  17. Great use of the snow effects Fran and none to shabby Norsemen as well!

  18. Suitably savage and very well done!

  19. All Morthmen aren;t savage or barbarians - just saying.
    These are however a very good representation of the more common Northern Savage Barbarians.

    ReplyDelete
  20. They reallly do look rather nice! The basing looks good, just wintery enough without going over the top. You're making painting 15mm look easy!

  22. They look great, Fran. Love the skull standards and the snow came out very nice.

  23. Super work, Fran... these look cracking. Would not want to meet these chaps on a dark....night or day, or anytime, really ;)
