Because of the large number of figures this army requires, I am certainly going to be doing some proxying, but I wanted to paint up some units for at least the superior, noble battlegroups that I can take. The Copplestone Barbarians that I have previously posted photos of will compose one unit (the additional figures I ordered from Copplestonewill regrettably not arrive in time), but two other units will consist of figures that I obtained from Splintered Light. I wanted these to be all ax-armed troops, and in order to increase the variety, I used a combination of figures from their Irish, Early Saxon, and Pict lines. Here are some pictures of the finished units:
The last one above is a comparison shot of a stand of the Splintered Light figures next to one of the Copplestone Barbarians. They look very similar in size here, but when viewed on the actual tabletop, the Copplestones are really much larger to my eye. But kept in separate units, its close enough for me.
Anyway, wish me luck this weekend, and once the event is over, I do hope to post some after-action reports.
