These are Gripping Beast 28mm Normans that I'm painting on commission. Something I don't do all that often, but I have always wanted to try my hand at these. Okay, these guys don't look like much right at the moment. In fact these aren't even the Normans I wanted to start with. I left the box of regular troops at home one night and these were all I had to paint. They are painted up to a basic level at the moment, touch ups and details will come after I mount them on the horses. I have base coated the shields in solid colors at this point and I'll start free handing the shield faces before I mount them on the horses. I'll do the horses after this and then get everything assembled and completed. So these guys aren't really much to look at right now. Plus the lighting was bad and they are really hard to take pictures of when they are sort of lying flat.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
