My New Welsh Army is Finally Done

Three Weeks Painting & Basing

Well here it is as promised the blog update on my new Welsh army.

Lots of new troops painted for this project, most of which were in my lead mountain! Thankfully I do not have to paint up any archers as I already have these in my collection to use with other Feudal armies. The Welsh foot were generally unarmoured except for their dismounted cavalry they fought with a mix of long and short spears, swords, axes and some used shields whilst others didnt. It meant I could use what ever figures I had available either painted up in an old collection of DBA armies or just spare painted foot plus a load of newly painted figures. My painting style has greatly improved over the years but when you base up old figures to match new additions the painting differences don't notice as much once they are all under a new coat of varnish.

  1. For those of you that were thinking I only built a Welsh army because I know they were going to become Irr BW S with the publication of the DBMM v2 army lists I started this army before June 2015 and I already had the Archers painted in my collection for years before this. I just added in the last missing elements of Ax X and Cv O/Bd O to finally put it on the tabletop.
