This update for the 30 Days 30 Miniatures shows another five completed Gripping Beast Norman crossbowmen. This takes the total to ten, four to be based for ADLG and six to be based singly for skirmish games and WAB.A versatile set of figures that will see use as Normans, obviously; Christian Spanish and mercenaries for the Viking and El Cid periods and even First Crusaders.Day 16 - 16 figures completedCheers for now

Further progress for the 30 Days 30 Miniatures with a Moor and five Norman/Christian Spanish Crossbowmen completed.The next five crossbowmen are already underway below.The colour of the tunics is more muted than that of the finished crossbowmen which will give the finished units a slight variance in colour.Next will be more Numidians and Spanish skirmishers for the Caesarian and Carthaginian forces that have been getting worked on.Day 11 - 8 finished figuresCheers for now
The last few days have been full on with real life commitments; travel to and from a family funeral, work and family. As a result of this by day 11 there is only work in progress to report.The figures are Ghulams from Black Hat Miniatures and are painting up well with not too much detail and yet enough to convey what is necessary.Hoping to complete all nine shown including riders for the half way point.There has also been some more time spent on the Christian Spanish although these are not shown here.Cheers for now.
