The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

Norman Infantry.

A new unit of Infantry I've been working on this week.

These guys are from Old Glory and are nominally from their El Cid range.

The idea is to work up a polyglot bunch of units working towards a game based loosely on the Norman campaigns in southern Italy, Sicily and into the Byzantine Empire. Eventually I hope to develop one or even a series of campaigns out of it, but whether that will ever see the gaming table is another matter.

Their accompanying cavalry are in the background based and undercoated.

Quite happy with these guys though, so felt obliged to share.

Next up a 28mm Mediaeval game which we hope to get played in the next few days.

As ever comments appreciated.




  1. Good stuff, mate! I see that documentary on the Crusades is on iPlayer for the next 5 days or so...

    How do you rate those Old Glory casts next to the Essex ones?

  2. They're a bit clunky, but they paint up surprisingly well.
    The Crusades series is well worth a look.
