Pottering about I've been working on my Lion Rampant Retinue, getting a dozen models made. I was able to purchase the Fireforge Templar Knights and Foot Sergeants for a very reasonable price from Fat Spider; giving me all the models for the 13th Century Feudal English force I chose to begin.
Not maybe the most imaginative choice, but hey, don't mess with the classics!
I'd already put two knights together as a test, and so got down to finishing the first unit.
I figured that the spear arms and the open crossbow arms could combine with a little reposing to make acceptable forms, that just left the weapons themselves. The axes in the set would provide some of the weapons, but for the others it was a simple case of working with some off-cuts of sprue.
Half a unit took the length of the F1 highlights to assemble. They have a decent range of poses and I can visualise a few more to get from the parts available. Each large unit will have a standard bearer as a leader model, as y'know, you can never have too many pretty flags n an army. Then this lot will be ready to fight in the Barons wars, raid and invade Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the continent; or play the role of other foreign nations if needed.
It's just a case of finishing them first!
