Saxons - nearing the final stage

All that I lack are the shield patterns and the Saxons will be ready for varnishing. Sketches for the shields were already done, so there will be no extra time needed. By tomorrow evening these should be completed and then will come the Danes.

My only experience with Metal Magic figures were Lithuanian cavalry. These were quite animated which left plenty of room for detail. The foot figures with cloak gave very little spacing between arm, shield and weapon. In contrast, the Alain Toulier figures had expressive poses which produced ample area to paint. Both sets of figures are true 15’s.   

When these two commission projects are done, then I will return to the late medieval period and paint the opponents for my Bavarians, the Imperial Austrians.
