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.
