After finishing a 10mm Napoleonic French and a 28mm Assyrian army, the next Lockdown project has been a 15mm Essex Ready Made Medieval Hungarian army. It was sold as a FoGAM army, but with a bit of a squint has more than enough troops to give me all the options and more for both a Feudal and Medieval Hungarian ADLG list.

With extra time in Lockdown I also took this as an opportunity to take more time than I usually do in painting the army, and especially to try and do the horses properly, using base colours and a number of different ArmyPainter Inks.



I also experimented with a new, higher resolution printer we now have at home, and found a load of images for shields on the web, printed them out onto normal paper and glued them onto the shields of the figures to make them a lot better than I could ever hope to paint. Finally I upcycled some old figures and added new shield graphics to them as well.



In the absence of LBMS transfers for this army it seemed to go OK.

I've posted the full WiP and also lots of photos of the finished figures on a couple of pages on Madaxeman.com, including a link to download a PDF of some of the shield graphics I used. There's still a few more spearmen to come, but the bulk of the army is now online.

You've got some spiffingly-oomphy results with those shields.

Looks good, I'll have to try that idea with the shields for my 15mm figures when I get back to painting though for my Athenian DBA army I already have bought commercial transfers.

The amusing thing is that particular shield is actually a photograph of a real shield from a musem somewhere...so those are the most 'real' colours on the whole lot  Wink

( Not sure on the duck banner though ! )

( Not sure on the duck banner though ! )

Maybe it was originally black and white bars and itís just faded/got grubby over the years  Undecided

Or they just do things differently in other places  Wink

Anyway, I think Iíll adopt this heraldry for my next Pendragon character  Cool

Those shields work a treat, really adding to the look of the units.
