 I finished my DBA Pictish army today. Most of the miniatures are feudal castings. Unfortunately I didnt shot pics while it was sunny. I finished the army and pics by dawn so the pics are a bit poor.

next workbench update

I have not post much this month but I'm going to, because I painted up some stuff up. And my next DBA Army will be ready end of the week: Teutonic Knights. Here is a update photo about this stuff:

Made my own DBA Table

Yesterday I made my first DBA table: The premissions was to make a simple, open for all terrain, and fine looking as well as handy one.
Firstly I cut my plywood in the mid in two halfes each 60*60 cm or 24*24 inches. Next I cutted my grasmat to 63*63 and put the wood in the middle. Then I stapled the mat on the back and clued the edges so the edges can not shear.
I'm happy with it and only have to build some hills and woods.

next base of psiloi

I can't get enough of
can you get enough of.... psiloi

I had some test painted celts hanging around here so I did a aditionally DBA Psiloi base with casualities.
I don't need it, but I want it !! Like at my last base the ground is swamp. Additionaly I did a generic dark age shield design to be able to use the element in all forthcoming Dark age armies. In my Roman army its named: ,,Numerus Nemetum''.
