The force is composed of Fireforge plastic Byzantine Spearmen & Auxiliaries (for the robed bodies), Gripping Beast plastic Arab foot (more robed bodies after I sawed off the left arms), light cavalry and heavy cavalry. I sourced extra shields and my warlord from Gripping Beast. The shield transfers are from LBMS and Wargametransfers.com. Lastly, I mixed in Arab heads and torsos to reflect an Arab influence in appearance. I'm quite happy with them at the finish line.
I assembled this bunch in March of 2019, planning to take them to the UK Saga World Cup. I had the bad luck of breaking my foot in 3 places and then being misdiagnosed for 3 months. Limping around on a broken foot for months was a bit of a disaster for me. I couldn't walk or stand for quite some time and this ended my plans to make the big show. Disappointed, I sold my unpainted warband and then at the start of summer, I reacquired them. As the Grateful Dead once sang, "What a long strange trip its been!" :-)
Last summer, I also was heartbroken to discover my blog was broken. Most of my posts from 2017 and older lost their links to photos. I've been relinking pictures with my old posts but its a slow, painstaking task. It was such a mess that I quit my blog.
I've had a change of heart. I'm going post when I can and continue fixing my old posts. After a year's break, I'm happy to report I'm alive, well and gaming when I can. So, how was your year? ;-)
