This week’s little experiment

Posted by ells10 on 24 Nov 2022, 15:33

This week’s little experiment, I used some figures from HaT Set 8069 Dacians, I removed the large oval shields and replaced them with round ones, and painted them up as Saxon Fryd, hopefully when they are integrated with my other figures they should mix in ok?
They are led by a Newline Designs Gothic Officer who is now a Saxon Thegn.
The two casualty figures are from Linear-A Set 030 Tarentine Horsemen of Magna Graecia, but again they are now Saxon Fryd.
HaT Set 8085 Gothic Cavalry provided the Saxon cavalry.
And because I had painted some Saxons, I had to even it out by adding to my Norman army using Revell Set 02550 Normans.

I don't know how you retain such high quality while being as prolific as you are? It seems every week you treat us to splendidly painted new units, thanks Ells!

Experiment succeeded!
All figures are very lively and realistic.
Oh, those Normans were one of the first figs I had as a kid.

I love it when forum members think outside of the “box”! I don’t even know what Dacians are but I think they make a very good Saxon Fryd.

Nice figures :) . Hat's Dacians really can be used for thousands of roles, from early germanic peoples to late medieval peasants... very versatile set.
