The last of my Viking stands for Saga or whatever you want. Once again they're all Gripping Beast plastic figures with my banners attached, you can find all the banners and some others here.
Get your butts over to Seb's Back to the Minis, he got more giveaways todays is No 6, some painted Dark age figures, 2 packs of Old Glory ECW/30YW or several packs from Venexia's Renaissance range!!! I'm not sure what's going on?? Seb's either gone completely round the twist or he's under orders from the mrs to get rid of some figures, or he's not allowed anymore!!!
Also I've got to say thanks to Andrew form Loki's Great Hall as I won 1st prize in his givaway. I've not yet sent him any figures, as I'm not 100% sure what delights I can send him and also as Fran won as well, we're gonna send all our figures together. Cheers Loki and we'll be in touch!
Lastly prompted by Clint's post today, I also received a parcel in the post from the Gentleman and Scholar better known as Dave Crook, the owner of A Wargaming Odyssey. In this said parcel was a tiny red book, Marmion, A Tale of Flodden Field, by Sir Walter Scott 1890. Dave had been looking at my Flodden figures and thought I'd enjoy the book. And how right was he!!!. The only condition was when the Rejects actually get to play a Flodden game I have to read some of the poem to them. So thanks go to Dave and here's a few lines from the poem.
638 With kindling brow Lord Marmion said,--
639 "This instant be our band array'd;
640 The river must be quickly cross'd,
641 That we may join Lord Surrey's host.
642 If fight King James,--as well I trust,
643 That fight he will, and fight he must,--
644 The Lady Clare behind our lines
645 Shall tarry, while the battle joins."
