"Anglo-Saxons Before Battle" (STRELETS)

I've finished my first STRELETS Anglo-Saxons set! (M050 PSR)
a quite nice set with 14 poses, it's enough to place in front of the "Normans Before Battle"  !!!
It's not a great painting job... but it was before I decided to re-use my magnifier glass !
(and the closed pictures don't serve me!)
Now, I'll do a break with the "Dark Ages", I've too much to do !

J'ai fini mon premier set STRELETS d'Anglo-Saxons! (M050 PSR)
un ensemble très agréable avec 14 poses, ça suffit pour placer en face d'eux, les 
"Normans Before Battle" !
Ce n'est pas un travail de "grande peinture" ... mais c'était avant que je décide de ré-utiliser ma loupe!
(et les photos en gros plan ne me servent pas!)

Maintenant, je vais faire une pause avec les "Dark Ages", j'ai trop à faire!





Do you see the "strange" helmet and the sword of this guy?











 ... and a quick Blogs-Review:

*The first is Mahapi_to   "Au Bord du Fleuve" 
one the challenger of "the 14th of July Challenge"
 ...a frenchie blogger and Gamer but a very nice guy! 
*a new blog I've added in my blog-roll: "Old Picture of the Day"
an original blog with old pictures (!) of all the periods and subjects! honesty, it's very, very interesting, I look a picture every day! 
*for the Nappies Fans (in french!) and the others too:  "dioramas empire" (Samuel is a very kind man and he's a very good "teacher" for the Napoleonic period!
*Thanos for the "Miniatures & Terrain"   a lot of very good works with some useful and clear "How to... " 
*Ender,  "Ender's Games" :a new blogger , but a Great Painter and diorama-maker !
*Furabienu, another frenchie blogger: Des figurines, du jeu et du fun" all is in the tittle!

    1. Merci Phil!
      la qualité de la peinture dépend avant tout de l'exigence qu'on se donne!

    1. Thanks Gowan!
      I think that some Anglo-Saxons had "found" some Romans equipment from the Romans who were in their country before! so, it's not so strange, in fact!

    2. states that it happened often (every time) to wear equipment other armies, taken in battle. In this case there is some difference in age, but the sagacious Sam has already stated that Roman helmet "was recovered and reused." Good job Sam!

    3. Thanks Michele! sagacious? maybe, but it's more a question of logic: all could be re-used, even in the "West-Islands-World"!

  3. Nice little figures here and I need to get myself a magnifying glass to paint with as I'm blind as a bat!

    1. Thanks Anne! when I see the painting level you have with your eyes, I'm always impressed! if you use a magnifier, I think that it will be a Master-Work...

    2. :D That's not what I meant! I also love your painting!

    3. Don't worry David!... but when you're not very happy of a work, better to have some humility!
      it's a way to improvement.

  9. Nice painted Strelets! I don't have figures from strelets in my collection, because imho they have some odd looking sets, but your anglo-saxons looks really good.

    1. if you want some, no problem ! give me your address!
      Paint STRELETS is a challenge but some are very nice and generally some poses are unique !

    2. Thanks for the offer. Maybe we can exchange a few figures? From your areas of interest I have, however, almost no figures. You can even just write to me what might be interesting for you.

  11. SalutSalut Sam,
    Moi je dirais pas si mal que cela sans ta loupe. Même plutôt bien. Et si d'aventure tu ne les à pas encore vernis un petit lavis marron foncé ou noir devrai leur donner juste ce qu'il faut de contraste. C'est juste ce que cela demande. Mais en tt cas chapeau c'est pas mal du tout

    At Ciao

    1. Merci, mais le problème enfait c'est que j'ai fait un lavage! (Citadel noir et sepia + ogryn flesh pour les visages et les mains) mais j'ai l'impression que ça n'apparait pas tant que ça sur les photos, je verifierai sur les "originaux" .
      (je ne vernis jamais: comme je ne "game" pas, je fais très peu de manip avec, donc ça ne me semble pas indispensable. Par contre, je me demande si je ne vais pas le faire sur celles en métal: dès que j'y touche j'enlève la peinture sur les parties en saillie, comme le bout des oreilles sur les chevaux, des pieds ou le nez (ben ouais!) des personnages... pas terrible!)
      merci de tes avis, j'en prend bonne note, mais je sais que j'ai encore du boulot sur l'utilisation des "washes et des inks" !(ça sonne comme du Gainsbourg, ça!)

  13. Thanks Peter for your walk in my blog!
    (you were very busy this sunday!)
    I'm re-using my magnifier (a new one with a good led-light) and I think that the next figures are better!
    It was a bad time for the Anglo-Saxons.
