It’s been a long while since I last posted; Christmas, a surprise house move and a couple of other life events have meant I haven’t posted for quite a while. However, I have been fairly productive, so I’ll be putting up a few posts in fairly quick succession as I clear some of the backlog of finished items.
The first of these is a quick little commission I did for a friend who won a couple of Saga heroes at a recent event. The two miniatures are Brian Boru and Ulf the Quarrelsome.
