My wife has been quite ill this past Autumn causing her to ultimately spend a good portion of December in hospital. She is now home and slowly on the mend.
This has caused some alterations in our lifestyle and much less space available for gaming. I have slowly finished the Earl of Marís 1411 army and finally got a post up on the blog.

More pic are at the link above but here is one that give an over view look:



The Lord of the Isles army is in production  but will first need to fight MacKayís at Dingwall before meeting Mar at Harlaw

Thinking we hadn't heard from you in a while, I dipped into your blog last night to see what you were up to, resolving to read your post today because it was so late. Sorry to read about your wife's health issues. Best wishes to you both for 2020.

p.s. looking forward to the next instalment of your Bloody Harlaw project but in your own time; nearest and dearest come first.

Thanks Orcs and Norm. To the side of the painting table are my new 6mm 1066 figures which will be placed on 20mm hex bases so I can play Normís two board games with figures. Hope to have examples of each troop type by February. 6mm shields are about the size of Scottish bucklers so itís all good.  Smiley

Here is an example of Technoís sculpts which will make up part of the Lord of the Isles army at Harlaw. They are color-blocked but detailing has not started (not that my painting can do the sculpts justice)




And the nascent 1066 project in 6mm:
