Picked these up at Monks Bar in York, 4 sets of 4 figures.
Decided to change some of the swords to axes and maces ( not the spray can of mace before somebody tells me they did not have this in 1066), will change the shields on half the figures to make them English and leave the others with the kite type shields.

Its a monologue that I learnt for a performance in a Gang Show many years ago.
Stanley Holloway I think did it originally.

Back to some modelling - some changes made to the figures, so I can have Normans and Anglo Saxons from the same figure so they can have a fight.
Will put a paper ring round the edge of the shield for the  reinforcing metal strip, should make it easier to paint.Then a more earthy colour for the Anglo Saxon clothing and slightly richer colours for the Normans - that's the plan at the moment.

So Zak, can we expect a full rendition of 'We're riding along on the Crest of a Wave' at the next meeting?

Put this in the wrong place under Romans - brain turning to mush again

While waiting for Zaks ditty, some ideas for the shields.
Top row the disc cut from thin aluminium, and a hole cut in some paper/card. Middle row paper fastened to disc and bottom row paper cut at the edges of the disc.
Works OK but will have to make a lot to be able to choose the best, and will also try and think of another way to do it. Might try and fasten a bit of solder around the disc edge and see how that goes - suppose I could just paint a ring on the risc edge but would be best if it has a slightly 3D effect

Don't rush -- I can hear Haddock saying it now.
Decided the best way with the shields was to use a slightly thicker green paper and LET IT DRY before cutting it, was then able to use the circle cutter and this has given (well to me at least) a better and more accurate  finish
