We are moving again and some Jomsvikings for SAGA!

   The time has came for us to leave after three wonderful years in Andalusia of Spain! Now, we are back to our home in Greece. So, I packed everything and left but before that, I managed to build my last SAGA warband the fearless Jomsvikings!

My workbench and stuff ready to move

   The "eagle eye" visitors can see that the miniatures are a collection not only of various manufacturers but of various historical periods as well, which is a tiny problem! I hope the painting scheme will make them "homogeneous"!

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

Saga Scots Thanes and Castellar de la Frontera

   Two points of Scots Thanes are ready! I painted both of them with shades of blue colour.

2nd point of Thanes



   Recently we visited another very nice Andalusian village, Castellar de la Frontera. It is built within a castle surrounded by the walls of an amazing Moorish-Christian fortress.

My wife "mans" the walls!!!

   That's all for today! Stay tuned for more!

Scots Soer-Chele and Jimena de la Frontera

   The first warriors of the two Scots Soer-Chele points are ready!

A nice LBMS Scottish shield transfer. 






   Some months ago, I visited the historic town of Jimena de la Frontera. The castle of the town was built on the hill by the Grenadian Moors around 750 AD. Seven centuries later, in 1465, it was integrated into the Kingdom of Castille.






   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

Saga Gall-Gaedhill (Sons of Death) and Ceuta

   A warband of Norse and Gaelblood mercenaries is ready to serve as Swords for Hire. The miniatures are Gripping Beasts plastic Dark Age warriors, Warlord Games plastic Celtic warriors and a metallic Celtic slinger. 

The Sons of Death

   Below you can see how I converted each of the miniatures using green stuff and the mixture of heads and weapons from Gripping Beasts Dark Age warriors and Saxon Thegns. The shield transfers are Little Big Men Studios.

























I don't know the manufacturer of this Celtic slinger.







   Recently my wife and me, we visited the Spanish city of Ceuta. A very interesting place, located on the north coast of Africa!
