The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

15mm Arab Conquest Army.

These guys were finished some time ago, but have been dusted off and refurbished.

Nominally, they represent an Arab Conquest Army of the period 700-800 a.d.

The plan is to use them or at least elements of them for the upcoming Norman conquest of Sicily/Constantinople campaigns.

A bit anachronistic, but not drastically so.

Figures are all Essex Miniatures.

Firstly, heavy Infantry and a small Camel Corps.

Next The General and his heavy Cavalry escort.

 Light Cavalry

And finally, Horse Archers and Light Infantry.

Quite colourful and something unusual, this army has never actually been used on the table-top yet, so it will be interesting to finally get them deployed.

As ever I welcome comments

Thanks for dropping by.
