Cyclopes. RedBox- Alliance

 What is the collective noun for them? Cyclopes? 

Never mind. 12 in the box in 4 poses. I think they missed a trick with this lot. They could have added a sprue of 2 eyed heads so they could be converted to giants. 

Close ups

These are big, not as big as some shown in films, and the one in the Film, The seventh Voyage of Sinbad was a mutant version anyway, but still big

Mixed medieval conversions.

The Bod drawing his sword was the top half of a rider from the Strelets English Cavalry of Edward I (Top row, second from the right) and the bottom half from the Strelets The Scottish army of Wallace set  (Third row from top, second from right)

The Bod with the Axe and dagger was a rider from the Strelets Army of Henry V set (eight row from top, far right) 

The saxon is from the Strelets Anglo-Saxon Fyrd set and has his sword swopped for a spear

The saxon is from the Strelets Anglo-Saxon Fyrd set and has his sword swopped for an axe.

Female, who is supposed to be Empress Matilda, is made up from the top half of the Airfix  Maid Marion and the Bottom half from one of the females in the Italeri Medieval "Battle sets"

The Viking with the spear is from the Zvezda Vikings set with an added head swop.

I´m still not as productive as I used to be..Life and things are still getting in the way of the hobby.

Viking/Saxon Shield Wall

Finally, after a long period of inactivity, something to post.

33 Bods of different makes, Emhar, Strelets, Airfix, Tumbling Dice

Wounded or dead bod from the Airfix WWI British Infantry set. 

Archers and javelins at the rear

Interestingly, whilst basing,  the line, due to overlapping the shields,  backed up to the right. Maybe due to the thickness of the bods shields or did it happen in real life? Or did they compensate by slightly tipping their shields inwards at the left to form a straight line? 
Flag from Ray over at Don´t Throw a One Blog.

 It will all be alright in the end. If it´s not alright now, then it´s not the end :-)

Frankish Crossbowmen - Tumbling Dice

Full Titel, FE14 Frankish Crossbowmen Quilted Jack.
8 bods in 6 poses. Two of the poses come headless and 4 spare heads are in the set, but they are all the same heads. Two of the poses are repeats so didn´t get painted, although they are the ones that need heads attaching so at some point I will add heads from other sets. 
Also in the set, 8 Pavisen und 5 loose crossbows.
