SAGA Scots

Today's post is just a random bit of painting from the lead pile.  One of my Christmas presents was some really nice Windsor Newton Series 7 brushes.  Maybe normal for some of you, but really fancy stuff to me.  I generally buy the cheap old pack of brushes from the craft store.  My wife asked me what I was going to paint with them first, and I answered "No idea.  Go pick me something."  So my wife rummaged through the lead pile and returned with two left over Scots from my SAGA army.  And so here we go!

I honestly haven't played SAGA in a long time.  I was playing with an fairly active group when I first started it, but some of the folks got just a little too competitive for my taste.  So I ended up just shelving my army and it's been collecting dust ever since then.  After painting these two figures it makes me want to dust them off and get them on the table.

Here's the two new additions...




Next post we'll be going from the Dark Ages to the Ion Age.  Have a good week friends!

  4. Brilliant work! Are they Gripping Beast mini's? If I would let my wife choose my figures I'd end up with buildings and livestock to paint...

    1. Thank you Sander. I believe they are Gripping Beast miniatures. It's been so long since I bought them I'd have to go look at the site to confirm.
