I've managed to complete eight additional figures for Tewdric's unit (Bulls Head shields) to take the unit total to thirty. This was really an experiment to make sure that I could still match the colours after nearly two and half years. The figures turned out well, so I've moved onto painting 10 archers in the same colours so that they can either form a back rank for a forty figure unit or a separate unit of missile troops.
I'll get some WIP pictures up at the weekend when I get the archers finished and find my camera.
I've also been reading this book over the past few nights and really enjoying it:
It's the first in a series of books which, through the eyes of a Danish raised Saxon name Uhtred, tells the story of King Alfred and his struggles against the Danes. Gripping stuff as ever from Bernard.
