Two Playtest Warbands Complete!

I’ve reached a small milestone in my 15mm skirmish project: I’ve completed enough troops types for two warbands! Were the world back to normal, this means I could do playtesting with actual figures, but… that’s still not likely to be happening for a good long while.

Here are photos of all the units I’ve based and painted so far, starting with some vignettes from the table showcasing a plausible in-game shot.

Both my 15mm painting and photography have a long ways to go.

Villagers come to the defense of their homes as a raiding party, part of a larger army pillaging through the countryside, comes to lay waste to their homes.

Individual Troop Types

These don’t represent all the possible unit types in the rules. There are a pair of “charging horse” units I have being painted by a much more capable mini painter right now, for example.

These also don’t represent the weapon or character variants either. As an example here, I have another six figures based as pikemen which will act as another element of “skirmishers,” which contrast against the sword and shield skirmishers I first based.

More will be coming!
