MORE SHINY TOYS

I managed to get a few more units done for the Toyhammer army.
The Knights of the Purple Pim. I started these about 10 years ago, Citadel Bretonnian knights converted to become Swan Knights of Dol Amroth, and they languished unfinished in a box until a couple of weeks ago. I hope they have a successful career in King Lodwick's Toyhammer army.

Some spearmen. These are playing pieces from an old board game called Lionheart. I bought 3 copies at next to nothing (check European ebay sites for good deals). Very basic detail which suits the feel of the army.

More Lionheart pieces. Some serfs to act as a speedbump.

I hope to introduce King Lodwick himself soon.

    1. I'm enjoying the random colour selections, with no thought to a uniform army.

  2. Another wonderful bunch, the pitchfork armed mob is very nice and brings up a number of scenario ideas.

    1. A filth shovelling autonomous collective springs to mind.

  3. I particularly like the swan knights, lovely helm crests. Can’t wait to meet the King. The serfs have a Medieval American Gothic painting vibe about them if you know what I mean. Great work keep it up.

    1. The swans (or purple pims) are geese from Irregular miniatures. I'll have to make a white clapboard church for the serfs to defend.

    1. Unfortunately you only get 4 in a box, but there are plenty of other figures.

    1. That's the look I am after. The arrows will ping off their shinyness.
