Preparing for CanCon

The annual trip up to Canberra and CanCon is almost upon us. This year like last I am not playing in a tournament but have signed up to a Crusades participation game. Thus the images below are my small contribution to the 3 days of gaming. The miniatures are speed painted in the last week or so with a mild dip and highlights added. Nice at arms length but do not hold up under scrutiny.
Eureka and Crusader X Bow

Eureka spearmen

 More of the same different angle.
 Eureka archers
Essex Heavy Cavalry (Old) sans spears.

Eureka command Salah al Din

Light Cav, Eureka and Essex

More light cav same as above.

Better Heavy Cav with weapons.

The whole force

Heavy Cav general and standard from Grimsby war-games site.
 
I had hoped that Saga for the Crusades would be out by now and the convention participation game was to use the new Saga rules but alas it was not to be. Instead they are using Deus Vult so no doubt by the end of the 3 days I'll have another rules set tucked under my arm and the wallet will be slimmer once more.

Lovely looking army Chris. Those Eureka figs paint up very nicely. Have a great time at Cancon!
