"Dark-Ages Army on the March"- KAMAR Figuren

Hi ! First post of the year with my first painted figures of 2015 ...
I've this set since a long time and like I was in a Medieval period... well... I've painted it !

Like Andreas Brüggemann  (Kamar Figuren) said : it's a generic army, good for a lot of periods and situations.
I've not really chosen one ! they could be Anglo-Saxons .... Vikings in a raid ?

The pictures are good enough for a banal painting work ...

















.... the base is a new one too !

  1. Very nice figures and scenery, Sam. The figures are portrayed with subtle changes in color; and the pictures are super: foreground shots, front and rear unit shots, the spy hidden in a tree view shot, bird's eye view shots; and all taking place on a well worn mountain trail.

    Sweet work, Pada!!

  2. Nice work Sam! These are definitely figures you can get a lot of use out of as they will look at home in a wide time period and in many locations. Excellent pictures too :-)

    1. Thanks Paul !
      yes a lot of uses ... in fact I've not really chosen who they are so they are more like a mix of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings !

  6. Parece com os Nefitas indo guerrear com os Lamanitas.
    Agradável cenário dos guerreiros, cavalos, armas e árvores e o caminho, parece até de verdade.
    Parabéns Sam =)

    1. Thanks Nanda ! Unfortunately I don't know who are the Nefites and the Lamanitas but I'm sure that they were great warriors !

    1. Merci Stéphane !
      ya des moments où je doute de ce que je fais (parfois à raison!) et là honnêtement, je trouve que j'ai bien foiré les boucliers alors je ne voyais plus qu'eux .
      Par contre, la scene elle-même rend bien l'atmosphere que je voulais rendre. tout n'est pas à jeter !

  13. A lovely setup Sam. The Dark Ages are one of my favourite time periods, and this captures the image of a roving warband excellently. Well done.

  14. Sam,

    They're beautiful minis set in an amazing diorama You have an amazing skill.

    Nanda brought up characters from best selling American author Joseph Smith.

    The Nephites and Laminites were warring descendants of Israelites who traveled to America in wooden submarines. The dastardly Laminites killed all the good Nephites in a war and became the American Indians.

    1. Thanks ! I could have done a research about that story .... I'm lazy sometimes !
      Looks like an interesting story !

    2. I've read some more about Joseph Smith and the Mormons !
      It's strange for me to think that the Native Americans could be Hebrews ! and that they are descendants of a "bad people" , it gives an idea of how the Indians were considered at this period of American History .

    1. Thanks Alister !
      no STRELETS, they are from KAMAR figuren (link in the post)
      http://kamar-zinnfiguren.de/de/Massstab-1-72/Figuren-1-72/1-72-Figuren--Zinn-Resin/KAMAR-Figuren-1-72/
      (middle ages range) I've painted some other sets from this manufacturer , you can see them with the label "KAMAR" .
      Strelets have some excellent sets of dark ages (especially Anglo-saxons ) , I've painted some like those ones : http://samsminisworld.blogspot.fr/2012/08/anglo-saxons-before-battle-strelets.html .
      And I would like to find time to paint some more of them !
