These sets were created to be something a little different. Most wargames miniatures are combat oriented but many customers ask for non-combatant style miniatures that they can use for dioramas, game objectives or just plain wargames table decoration.
Our monks and nuns proved very popular, but we wanted something a little less austere, so we decided to look at the pastimes of the rich and (in)famous. Norman lords were renowned for liking a good hunting trip although one or two did end in tears (William Rufus). Last month we presented a couple of Norman Hunting Parties; a boar hunt and a stag hunt.
|Product Name:||Norman Hunting Parties|
|Sculptor:||Martin Baker / Jo Brumby|
We decided to release two sets as we had a couple of great quarry animals and some wolf-hounds already sculpted by Jo Brumby that needed to be used in an exciting way. We approached Martin Baker to see if he could come up with some great hunters and perhaps some bloodhounds. He came up trumps with the fellas he produced and thus two great hunting sets were released.
One of the hunters he sculpted bears a passing resemblance to a certain film star of yesteryear, and he sculpted the rest of the hunters to fit in with this style. Obviously, one or two of these figures could be used as combat miniatures but we hope that you like them for what they are.
