Well I started painting my Normans over the holiday. I uploaded 10 or so progress shots on my Day of Battle Forum.

Those look good Chris, I really like the king figure! What manufacturer are they?

Thank you, a humble painter am I but I like them.

The spears are Sash and Sabre. The leader is Liomheart and made by Vanguard available through The Miniature Service Center.

Here is a direct link.

THose are very cool, thanks for the link. Are the figures in multiple pieces so that they can be posed differently to add more variety?

Many are though for the most part the heads, hands and weapons are variable. Torso's are one piece.

Many come with different hands and weapons.

Thanks Chris. You are going to have some work ahead of you putting together 40mm DOB armies! I am finishing up 2 feudal armies in 28mm and that takes long enough. Those 40mm figs might be great for a feudal variant of Dux Brit though.

Actually these are for my new skr. level game called Le Morte d'Arthur. Units are 3 to 8 men. I'm using a lot of the DoB systems. I haven't done any announcements yet but I do have a partial battle report on my DoB Forum.

Actually it wouldn't be bad. Day of Battle like alot of other games now like Impetus don't do a fixed figure ratio. I could base them like DBx units and I think they'd still look imposing. I have done Day of Battle armies in 54mm and 90mm figures.

For La Morte all foot units will be the equivalent to two DBa stands in figures. Mounted will be one DBa stand worth of figures.

I like systems that have sabot bases as well. I have a couple of copies of your rules (older ones with the black cover and the newest ones), but have not played them. Hope to get to it some day. I have a nice Hudson and Allen castle with a done of extras already painted and ready to go and need to put a skirmish game together one of these days. Let me know when your rules are ready.

Very cool Chris, nice work

Thank you. I a not a detail oriented painter so they paint very fast. Helps me get the basic rabble done.

Finshed my 40mm armies and just in time for Game day next weekend in Bath Maine.
