First off the table is Hereward the Wake:
Overall he is a nicely sculpted figure from Gripping Beast and easy to paint. I also decided to try out LBMS transfers for the first time with him, and have to say they are amazing products that really bring figures to the next level. The only downside to this particular figure is his stat card for Saga. Unfortunately I didn't see his restrictions prior to purchase, but his army is unable to field Huscarls (of which I have quite a few). He can however use Flemish mercenaries, so perhaps I can use some of my Huscarls as men for hire.
Speaking of Huscarls, I also purchased one metal unit equipped with Dane axes:
I've done my best to use colors that would be reasonable for the era, and referenced the following sites for ideas:
1000 Foot General
For the basing, I wanted something that would look like the Yorkshire moorland:
Gale Force Nine:
GFS001 Green Static Grass
BF4212 Lowland Shrubs
WGS-TUF-01 Summer Tufts
WGS-TUF-05 Wild Meadow Tufts
WGS-TUF-06 Heather Tufts (they were a bit too dark for my liking, so I've added some magenta paint highlights to the purple)
There is still a lot more to paint, but I think this is going to be a very fun project.
