SAGA Scots (1)

I took advantage of the recent North Star sale (thanks Nick!) to pick up some cheap SAGA dice for my Scots faction, and while I was there I picked up a couple of blisters of Crusader Scots that, once finished and added to the Warlord and Thanes I've already painted will give me a four point warband.
Here's a few shots of them on the workbench:
Bare metal:

And then after a coat of Plastikote Matt Chocolate Brown spray:

I'm really struggling to get my camera to focus at the moment. I think it may be on the way out.

These guys did actually get a minor run out last week against my regular SAGA opponent's nascent Welsh warband. But given that both of us were fielding largely brown (me) or black (him) warbands I took no pictures.
Also as we were both wrestling with new and complicated boards I can't even really give a brief report - except to say that at the end neither warlord lay dead and I lost on a casualty count-up (new warband, same old story).

The current Mrs Tom's Toy Soldiers is away this weekend, so I'm hoping to make some more progress on these chaps.


  1. Haven't you finished them yet ;-)

  2. I recently painted a Saga Scots army made up mostly of Crusader. Great figures!
