Monty Python Themed SAGA Army Part 7 – King Arthur

The final, for now, piece of my Monty Python themed SAGA army is my Warlord, King Arthur. Arthur is from the Fireforge Games Teutonic Infantry plastics box, and Patsy is Reaper Miniatures Oswald the Overladen. Arthur has some facial hair made from Green Stuff, and the banner was printed on inkjet cotton paper – my new favorite medium. Again the tunic and shield logos are custom decals that I made from artwork found on the web, and I overpainted the shield with acrylics as the larger decal was somewhat pixelated.

As an aside, after fiddling with the Crusader board last week I have decided to run this army as Normans.

Monty Python Themed SAGA Army Part 6 – The Grail Knights

Here they are – the core of my force. The knights themselves are from  Fireforge Games Teutonic Infantry and the squires, or in this case “mounts”, are Reaper Miniatures Oswald the Overladen. Sir Lancelot is straight out of the box. Sir Galahad and Sir Robin have West Wind heads, and I added Sir Robin’s pornstache with Green Stuff. Sir Bedevere is also from the box set with a Green Stuff helmet plume that I added. All of the tunic and shield logos are custom decals that I made from artwork found on the web. I overpainted the shields with acrylics as the larger decals were somewhat pixelated.

I’m hoping that my opponents won’t mind if I run these as mounted Hearthguard. Four points down, and a Warlord to go.

Monty Python Themed SAGA Army Part 5 – The Knights of Camelot (with Crossbows)

Figuring I need some ranged weapons in my SAGA army, I used some more of  Fireforge Games Teutonic Infantry to create this unit of Warriors with crossbows. In trying to keep with my theme I painted their tunics in the style of the dancing knights seen in the Camelot cut scene (‘On second thought let’s not go there, tis a silly place.”). Three points down, one (and a Warlord) to go.

Warlord Sd.Kfz. 250

Most of my WWII “28mm” vehicles are 1/48, but I do have a few 1/56 German and American vehicles laying around that I’ve decided to use for Weird War II/pulp games. This is an older Bolt Action Sd. Kfz. 250 that I brush painted in Ambush Camouflage. The markings are from Archer Fine Transfers and a Japanese mech model.

Monty Python Themed SAGA Army Part 4 – The Black Beast of Arrrghhh Fatigue Markers

Whilst waiting for other components of this never ending project to dry, I whipped up these Fatigue Markers. There were quite a few directions I could have gone here, but what’s more tiring than being chased through a cave by that thing?
