I've completed the final 6 models for the Novgorod force for the Baltic Crusades project. Oh yes, it's always a nice feeling when a project is finished.
Here they are in all their splendour:
The models are all from Gripping Beast.
And finally, here is a shot of the two city militia forces as I will field them, armed with a mix of spears and missile weapons:
We had our first game featuring the Novgorodians last night – an ambush on a Swedish baggage train of sledges – and they performed surprisingly well. This was also an opportunity to take some pictures of the whole force with some nice looking terrain in the background. An AAR should eventually appear on Dalauppror's blog. Meanwhile, here is a teaser pic of the table from the Novgorodian starting table edge:
In the upper right corner, you can see the Swedish force, just visible behind the woods.
Hopefully some of the pictures will make into the finished game when it's published by Osprey sometime next year.
As a result of this project being completed, there is now a serious dent in the lead mountain. But fear not! I've already ordered more models to restore the mountain to its former glory – and then some – for future projects.
Have a great weekend everyone!
