I've made a start on my little mob for the 'How to Oldhammer' challenge. Above are the figures I've started with so far. On the left is a Front Rank Wotr Officer, in the middle is an advanced heroquest man at arms, I got 11 of them cheap as chips off ebay a while back and lastly on the right is a Front Rank crossbowman ( http://www.frontrank.com/4_2_lev3_The_War_of_the_Roses.asp ) , I've got five of these. This means I've got another 5 figures to decide upon for my 21. I'm going to do some headswaps on all the figures, firstly to unify them as a group and secondly cos I love doing Headswaps! I'm aiming at portraying a town watch lead by a Watch-Captain.
So here are the first three with new heads. I might change the head on the Captain, it's a bit too hairy but it tickles me for now. All the figures are wearing Jacks so I might end up painting them in two colours to give them a uniformity. I want to do a banner for the men-at-arms and I'm going to have a go at using the classic tomato-paste-tube metal approach.
