Just in time for the US SAGA Grand Melee, I finished the last of my Rus Princes warband. I can now run just about all options I can think of. All Gripping Beast figures. More pictures and a write up on my blog here.Thanks for looking!

So, like, you're not gonna actually 'game' with those beautiful looking figures are you?! grin They're fantastic. I can only dream about painting that well. As Miracle Max said in, 'The Princess Bride:' "Have fun storming the castle!"

Wow, thanks so much for the feedback! There are very talented painters coming out so I had to up my game. I tried some new things like making a display board, snow basing and painting a paper banner. Its good when it all comes together.

idontbelieveit, I experimented with snow basing and settled on the PVC glue/white acrylic paint/baking soda mix with soda dusted over the wet mix. It looks quite realistic.

I plan to take pics and post a write-up. At some point in a long day of gaming, I'm lucky to remember the rules.

Ran The Cid, see you in Chicago and I'm guessing you're running Spanish with a handle like yours? I came close to taking Spanish. Too many good choices.

Bohemund, see you in Chicago. THANKS and good gaming to all!

Those figures look even better in person than in the photos. I wish I had played against them .
