More Normans
















Happy 2015 to everyone! Here are some photos of various units for my Normans which I've finally got around to finishing off. I haven't done anything with these figures, apart from the odd game of Saga, for years but I'm quite keen to try them out with Lion Rampant, the Medieval skirmish rules and will soon have enough painted figures for two Norman retinues of twenty four points.

The figures are a mix of Crusader Miniatures and Gripping Beast. Looking through the army lists in the rules it is pretty straightforward to use existing Saga warbands and various other medieval armies I already have to make up another dozen or so retinues. Some, like the Normans, will not require much additional painting.

  2. Excellent job, my favourite unit is the cavalry, but each of them is really impressive!

  3. Very nice collection of Normans :-) How many figures a side do you roughly need for a game of Lion Rampant?

    1. Thanks Paul, for Normans you need 2 Mounted Men-at-Arms (2 x 6 figs), 2 Foot Yeomen (2 x 12 figs), 1 Crossbowmen (12 figs) and 1 Bidowers (6 x figs). Most other 24 point retinues are a similar size.
