I was never a follower of Games Workshop and couldn't understand the attraction with Warhammer etc; however I always found their figures a work of art. As a consequence I collected and painted up a Bretonnian army using their early and later ranges. I must admit I made a good job of the figures but then ended up selling the whole lot after one game. Another sale I now regret. Anyway I was looking around for some figures to make into a levy archer unit for Never Mind the Billhooks and chanced upon some old plastic Bretonnian archers on E Bay. The rest is history. I still had some heads from my original Bretonnian army so chopped a few heads off to give them some variety.
I couldnt bring myself to make them look too levy like and painted them in a semi uniform attire. I like them. Yes they are fantasy figures, yes they dont look like a motley crew but Im happy with them. So happy Ive started another unit of archers.
