Got this base finished a few hours ago. It's the first of many- a great many! :)

There's a good mix of miniatures, some old some new on the base and I'm quite pleased at how everything has gelled together; nothing looks out of place which is very pleasing as I did have a little anxiety that they may not fit well.

You can read all about my thinking behind the construction and painting and see many more pics on my Just Add Water Blog here:

Either "Harald/Harold" will do. :)

I think a few more arrows stuck in the ground and shields would finish it off nicely….
