As a firm believer in delayed gratification, I thought I would attack the Lead and Plastic mountain from the direction of items that had been in it the longest, rather than recent or more desirable projects. So pulled them out last week and got to work.
After painting up a unit of 10 (SAGA's magic number for Saxons), I based them on 25mm round bases from Proxie Models. Then I hot glued the figure, and filled the lipped base with some PVA glue:
I then added some bits of rock leftover from a Woodland Scenic kit:
After drying, I add bits of moss (green foam) and grass clumps.
Now only 30 more to go...
I have no real plans to ever play the Anglo-Saxon board in SAGA nor do I have the time or money to build a Hail Caesar size army so maybe they will end up for sale. I might interested in seeing what is the going rate for some painted minis on eBay or TMP.
