Dark age flats for Lurland
These are the last of the painted flats I bought last month. They are men from the East Mark. They are formidable axe wielding warriors.
The figures are fragile with their two handed axes and beautifully animated be they just standing, fighting or my favourite the running figure. I am still amazed at the movement that can be got from a two dimensional figure. I am intending not to buy more figures for the the Lurland project currently ( the Ducal war chest took a hammering) but concentrate on finishing. Basing needs to be completed, these Lurland civilians painted, twelve West Mark cavalry need painting and there are about thirty Lurland spearmen/axemen/swordsmen to paint. That should keep me busy. Longer term I am keen to buy some chariots ( probably Celtic light ones though the heavy kind are tempting ) and war elephants to add to the exotic mix and in memory of Derek Guyler’s glorious elephants I oohed and aahed over all those years ago.
