Robin Hood: Back to Basing
Well, I'm absolutely delighted to get some hobby time after a busy week or so. I'm blessed to have a lot of projects and things on the go, but this has a habit of causing what I call Pandora's Box paralysis (PBP) known to many others as the Wargaming Butterfly Effect. So, after no small amount of humming and hawing, I decided it was high time I got on with my Robin Hood project for Blood Eagle.
You may recall that this project began as a simple idea about a year ago. But like all good ideas, it is a tale that has grown in the telling. What was originally about a dozen miniatures is now sitting at thirty-something. It was high time I set about basing them!
First up then was my command set for the Sheriff's men. This is from the incomparable Perry twins, specifically from their Crusades range. This is CU1 which, from left to right in the photo below are now Robert de Rainault, High Sheriff of Nottingham, Sir Guy of Gisborne and a mounted officer. Admittedly, it is a bit of a demotion for Bohemond, but them's the brakes!

I've also begun painting the Sheriff's men. Here's a couple of photographs of two of them, ready for the flock to be applied to their bases.
