Dark Age Irish Project

 Some 28mm Miniatures I painted for a customer's Dark Age Irish Saga Warband.

I believe most of them are from Gripping Beast, with some minor conversions.

The strange looking nail on the Brian Boru base is designed to take a tree with a hole drilled into it.

They look better in real life, I never seem to be able to get photos that I'm happy with. Perhaps that's

 just because the human eye perceives things very differently to a camera. 

The banners are from Little Big Men Studios, as are some of the shield designs.

Tufts are from Leadbear's Tufts, made in Australia.


  1. Oh so lovely πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ hard to get the men carrying two javelins to look right ?

    1. Thanks Matt. My customer sent down a mixture of 2 & 1 javelin for me to paint. Some of the hands don't really suit a javelin in each, and I did some extra sculpting of thumbs and fingers to get them to look right.

  2. Beautiful work with some very characterful figures. The banners look great.

  3. They look great, all the swirls.


17th Century Characters...mostly
