Another Dozen Spanish Spearmen

As hinted at in an earlier post, a second dozen Casting Room Miniatures' Norman spearmen muster off from the painting desk.  Also mentioned in that same post, I love the quality of sculpting, poses and animation in these Normam footmen.  
For the Reconquista project, these Norman spearmen will be fielded as Spanish to oppose the Moors as the Christians attempt to wrest control of the peninsula from the Muslims.

    1. Yes, a menacing bunch, for sure. The warriors have determined looks on their faces, don’t they?

  9. Great looking figures and good to see Casting Room Miniatures getting some blog space; don't think that they get enough credit.

    Cheers, Ross

    1. Thanks, Ross!
      Besides my own efforts, I rarely see CRM figures either. The Normans are equivalent to the best sculpts from anyone. Their Renaissance range, which have seen action on my painting desk, are not as good.

  10. Hurray for more Normans! They are my favorite. Looking good. 😀

  11. Another very fine unit. In agree the sculpting on these is far better than the earlier Renaissance figures (which were OK, but just; much better with your painting!)

    1. Scott, the troops are ready for gaming. Jake and I got in a game or two a few years ago. High time to get the collections back out onto the table.
