Gifts at a Wargames Show

As I mentioned in the post about Castle Donnington I received some gifts, well my son received them really but I can dream can't I? These are tremendous gifts from Loki and even at his tender age my son really appreciates them. At the moment his Saga army is Anglo-Dane but I can see him moving onto Vikings, or at least using mine some of the time. Not that it will stop him using these guys in the odd game anyway. In fact I expect a few test games coming up next weekend as it's my sons birthday Friday so it would be a great treat for him to start playing with his figures.

The quality of the painting speaks for itself. I was already planning on commissioning Andrew to paint up a point or two of Vikings for me, now I need to as my son has more Loki figures than I do!

Great quality and would be a prize for anyone's army. I think he will be using this guy as the leader of his best troops and why not he looks the part.

This guy though is my favourite and has helped me decide I need some berserker's, he is just too cool not to want a bunch of them! The effect Andrew has got on the trousers is so very good and I plan to study it for some of the other figures I have yet to paint for my force.

Great clinic in how to paint flesh and wood are also rolled into this figure. OK I won't be able to match such brush control but I sure can improve my skills just by taking note. This year has been such a focus on 6mm that all other scales have suffered a little but fortunately I will be spreading over a wider range as next year gets closer and whilst 6mm will be seeing a lot of painting action 2015 will see lots of the other scales as well.

Andrew also supplied something for us to fight over as well. Two highland cows from Warbases, indeed I think famous from a Warbases Wednesday post and if that was not enough....

A pair of Boars or Wild Pigs, again from the Warbases animal range. I have finally cracked open my Warbase horses blisters and have cleaned and primed them, no excuse now not to get them all painted up and ready for the next shoot out. 

So a very big thank you to Andrew and if you want to own something as grand as these then you can commission Andrew or Kev over at Brigantes Studio, just don't jump ahead of me in the queue LOL.

    1. Well you have been very generous yourself Dave, my son should look back to all the friends he is making in the hobby with a lot of warmth. I can assure all that he does really appreciate the time that people give him at the shows, I am biased but he is a great kid LOL
