100YW French in 10mm

So here we go, those lovely chappies on Pendraken's forum set the challenge of purchasing some figures and then recording progress every two weeks. I saw this as potentially a way of keeping my blog updated... let's see!

My latest painting efforts is going into two matching 100 Years War French and English Armies in 10mm based to Fields of Glory.

Both armies were purchased for just under £75 which is a steal these days. They took just over a week to arrive and were within days based up, basetexed and undercoated black.

A week later I have two 8 stand units of French Crossbows and a single 8 stand unit of Ribaulds (peasants to you and I).

I would very much like to get these armies on the table before Christmas 2010 so these are a bit of a speed paint.  My photography as always leave a lot to be desired but there you go - I'm a man of a certain age that just about gets along with modern technology.

None are yet varnished and naturally I have still to flock the bases.
