Duel of Kings is all over yet The Kingdom of Men has only begun

It is over.
Imperial Bolt Shooters (only need 1)

Stone Golem Love this miniature

Hastati 1

Hastati 2

The Horde (Which is the Hastati and Principes joined together)

principies 01

principes o2

The actual Roman force rather than the KOW force


Velite 01

Velite 02

Velite 03 the joy of KOW is that as a base each of these units of a mere 3 minis will equate to a base of 10 militia (if no one minds of course)

The whole KOW Kingdom of Men army complete.
Thanks Owen, Grot, Glen, Drew and all the others for the motivation to get it done. Now on with the cavalry

Duel of Kings Almost complete 3 days to go

Well with three days to go I am finding it hard to fully finish but it is not over yet. Others have done both a far better paint job and have completed their units (thanks Drew ) but I am going to try.
the whole force arrayed

same minis different angle

The Horde and a support troop, shields do not have funky symbols, as 1 I can't paint and 2 I need to come up with the cash for the decals

General stand complete with paint blob on shield, highlight and grass on the ground and this stand will be done.

Love this mini, reaper bones stone golem with fossil on shoulder but I realised that the base was 50 X 50 but I think it will look good on the large base. A bit of moss and finish the base and that will make this complete too.

Duel of Kings, the final week

The Whole army so far, sans shields

Half a Horde

Other half of a horde

The Legion



Warbeast, not a wolf but sort of built from the rocks near sorry in The Kingdom that my troops come from.........??

War engine
Italian Allies (not needed for Duel of Kings but will make a nice unit)

Balearic Slingers (militia again?) 

Cretan Archers (ummmmm bowmen)

My General, I could not track down a nice mounted general in time but these look the part and even though you need only 1 miniature for your hero/generals for the Kingdom of Men I sort of felt that it would look nice to have it as a group hope no one minds. Now where are the paint brushers?
Please note that the cavalry will not make an appearance and I am going to be pushed to finish this lot in time.

A slowwww begining to Duelling Paintbrushes 5 The Duel of Kings

Sadly I have barely begun to build or paint my attempt at the Duel for this year and yet there is still hope.

My Kingdoms of Men army based on Punic war Romans still in boxes

Close up of the only two minis glued together before this weekend. Two Triarii that will form 2 of 10 in a Troop Unit.
Will I pull it off? Hope so.
