The sea was dead calm in the small cove beneath Castle Tancred.

A Young Knight in full armour stod on the small jetty, watching as a huge dragonship came along side and moored.

The cove was filled with them and more could be seen out at sea.

A smile lit up the face of the young man as he recognized the familiar features that he looked for.

"Uncle Ragnar!!"

"Nephew!, good to see you again"   The giant Vikingur mans embrace almost engulfing the smaller youth.

"At last. We saw the flames on the horizon more then a fortnight ago. We were almost getting worried..."

"Ach, you Young.... You fret too much."

"Patience.... Death will come to us all eventually."

"So Young one....how goes it? Where is Roland? The time has come to raise the Dragon Banner again."

"Roland is up at the castle. We have just dispatched a small force against Hautmont. They left as soon as we saw your sails."

"Good, good.....and what of the King?"

"As anticipated....when news of the attack on the mountain pass by the Order of Taal...he assembled what forces he could gather and moved south."

"Excellent...the way to Couronne is open...and then onwards to the sea. Bretonnia is ours for the taking."

"Yes Uncle, L´Anguille can never withstand a two pronged attack. You from the sea and us from land."

Laughing and putting his arm around the younger man...almost dragging him along..they started walking up towards the castle on the cliffs.

"Now tell me Nephew....you do HAVE mead right?....I cant stand that diluted poor excuse for a womans drink you have down here"

The giant viking tilted his head back and roaring with laughter exclaimed.

" We will teach them to drink mead in Couronne... when we feast in the Kings great hall."


"Today is a good day Bjorn, we have returned to our ancient home...to raise the Dragon banner once again"

I bought some minis from GW in the past.

But they came in non-descriptive white boxes.

Like some Dogs-of-War....like the Alcatani Fellowship.

I´m sure they had the banner on the back of the box.(The old ones...)

Does anyone have the scanned version online somewhere?

It would be much appreciated.

Like...all the old boxes...

All and any help guys.

I really like your story when I read this

“I would think not.”
“Run….tell your parents…..The Black Griffon marches south!”

I knew it would be good huzzah   :unsure:

Thanks Docj  :::cheers:::  Didnt see your comment earlier.

So I finally had one...one day to myself. What do we do then?...go out binge drinking at the local pub...?

Kick back in the comfy sofa and Watch/sleep to the latest Movies?

No..we..continue our rebellion against the forces of evil (AoS)...

I seldom get much time these Days...work too much.

But speed painted these (well my version of speed paint anyway)

They look so much happier now then when I "rescued" them from the local trading site.

Eight more to go...with Classic Scwarzhelm in command.

Keep the faith  :biggriin:



I even got a hold of some of those original transfers...which isnt all that easy these Days. Worked out pretty good though.

I´m sorry about the "yellow light" but you get the idea.   Old skool.



Paint stripping these was hard.  For those of us living in Sweden...I found this to be very useful...

Works magic on the metal mins...4 hours..paint just falls off. Plastic....24 hours and scrubbing...but works.

I take no responsiblitly whatsoever what happends with your mini though. I´m sure the Company doesnt either...

Just.....worked real nice for me. Wear plastic gloves though...

I just unscrew the top....fill the right amount to cover your minis in a glass jar...let soak.

Ah, got it, makes more sense that it is being soaked, and good to know, thank you!

Thanks Doc, you are very nice to say so  :::cheers:::

They are nice models, just dont get too many.

They do get a bit boring to paint after a while.

I dont like too many mono-pose, so I did try a little bit conversion for the command group,

while still keeping them in style with the others so to speak.

I just acquired these bad boys....



Going to make me feel all warm and X-massy when I go and pick them up tomorrow.

By the way...Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year to all on this wonderful, amazing forum.   :::cheers::: :::cheers::: :::cheers:::

I hear ya I have alot of monopose spearmen. On the one hand they rank up well, but on the other they are boring to paint and hard to get through.
I look forward to seeing all of those cavalry.

In my continuing "oldskool" project I give you Ludwig Schwarzhelm the champion of Karl Franz and the bearer of the Emperor's personal standard.







Not happy with the banner.
My Printer is crap at the moment.
And the light conditions are still yellow I´m afraid.
I will fix this later and post something better.

I was just wondering when you would post again. Nice one I like the gilt edges of his black armor, Ive never had the confidence to attempt elaborate models like that, maybe soon I will I have to paints some Khornegors and those sculpts are busy. I got myself one of the monopose halberdiers after seeing yours, they paint up pretty quick. Where do you find your banners?

Hi Doc,
Saw your halberdier there. Nice work  :::cheers:::   (Wish there was a +1 function on this forum.)
They do paint up pretty quick dont they  :smile2:
Banners are hard, my freehand sucks. So I print mine and give them a once over with some wash.
There used to be some places where you could download banners and I have some.
I try to modify them slightly to make them my own.
I hope to find some place with all the old empire/dogs of war banners from the army books though.
That would be cool, especially now that everything has gone AOS, the GW ones should be let free I think.
Anyone have a good site for this?, where we can share and download old classic banners?

The leaves rustled....something/someone was approaching fast through the dense undergrowth....the squires raised their spears in anticipation.

You could almost smell the tension in the air.

One of the young boys being a part of the line driving the game towards them, Jean, suddenly burst out from the treeline infront of them.

Falling to his knees infront of Bohemunds horse, gasping for breath, he exclaimed:
"My Lord!, it´s been seen...."

"Pray tell Jean...what have been seen?"

Knowing Jean for being a young, excitable man Bohemund glanced over at his serjeant Hugh with a little knowing smirk.
Hugh, knowing the young man well, returned the glance with a knowing nod.

Having catched his breath Jean blurted out:

"The hart my Lord!....The white hart!"....

A sense of serence silence and reverence immediately fell over the Bohemund, his brother Bertrand and the rest of his retainers in the hunting party.

"Are you sure boy??" Bohemund asked demandingly.

"I swear it with my life Sire...I saw it myself!..."

In the distance the coarse bark of a deer could be heard.

"Boy...lead the way...run ...faster then you have ever run before!"

The hunt was on.

Deep inside the forest of Arden, in the Dukedom of Gisoreux.
