TIM’s Baron’s War Army

Last Saturday I completed the two remaining foot figures which I had for my Footsore Baron’s War army.  As regular followers are aware I still have a number of mounted knights still to do.  I very much want to complete those and hopefully will make further progress on them throughout the year.  However, for now it is time for me to move on and concentrate on other things, specifically my “Earl’s Visit” diorama which, incidentally will feature a dozen or so mounted knights albeit not from Footsore range.  More on those in a future “Dio-Bolical Monday” post.

What I couldn’t do dear reader was leave you without a few photo’s of the army as it currently stands.  As you will see I haven’t gone to any great length to display the figures against a scenic background or on a diorama like base.  Maybe one day I’ll do something about that.  What you can see in the images is 90 figures, 10 short of the hundred I was aiming for but the difference is made up of the mounted knights I haven’t done yet.  I have not done much in the way of close up photo’s as everyone of the figures on display has at one time or another featured in a previous post.

One thing I have yet to decide on is what to do with the army.  For now I think I will keep it until I have done the remaining figures, after that I’m not so sure.  I love the knights but some of the other figures do little for me.  Nothing to do with the castings or quality of the figures but they aren’t anything special for display and as I’m not a gamer they will just sit around gathering dust or be hidden away in a box.  I might therefore look to sell them on eBay at some point.

As things currently stand this will be my last Saturday post for a while.  Along with my “Midweek Musings” I expect to return to a weekend post at some point in the not to distant future.

  1. This is brilliant mate, there is something deeply satisfying about a fully painted army in my opinion. Do like the rest of us – store them in a case, buy a copy of Dragon Rampant & prepare for a battle that might or might not happen once in a blue moon 😂

  2. This is an excellent force, I really enjoyed reading all your posts about it from your first ideas of the force to this great display.
    I’m just amazed you are thinking of selling any of the, no way I would let any go if they where mine. But perhaps I’m more of a horder than you!

  3. Its really impressive to see these all together. You’ve really produced a lot of high quality miniatures over the last year or so! If we didn’t know better, we’d think you were painting to game because that is usually how gamers do it 🙂

    Just out of curiosity, did you try adding more light to your pictures? I think they might look even more impressive with a bit brighter of lights on them but I’m sure you thought about that already!

      1. That makes sense. It could maybe the dark tablemat but then again, I can’t say too much about anyone’s tablecloth considering the really ugly one I used to have to deal with! 🙂

  4. Outstanding! As others have said there’s nothing quite like seeing an army assembled like that, especially when it’s all your own work. Something to be very proud of – and tough though the last few were you’ll be surprised how soon it is that you start thinking of adding a few new recruits. 🙂

  5. I said at the outset that you would end up with a nice little army or two out of this, and it is great to see that it has come to pass.
    As for “what to do with them”, the pleasure was in the painting, so it’s completely up to you, and the selling of them just lets you buy more models to paint. So win-win.

  6. I had a few tears in my eyes when you said that horrible word “sell”. I paint so slow it takes forever to finish an army and the idea of selling gives me a shivers.

    Beautiful models and great army youve built TIM.
