Hello everyone!
Inspired by the deeds of several other LAFers I decided to start my own GoT-themed SAGA army. Mormont came to my mind, and although i won't ever reach the incredible level of HvM with his Impetus army i still think i can give some of my own to Bear Island.

As for now, the army will proxy Capetian Franks or Normans, both fielding heavy cavalry and lethal crossbows.
The Band will be lead by the three-times-world-champion of badassery Lady Lyanna Mormont, and will field both fierce Mormont soldiers with some Glovers as well, that after the Battle of the Bastards lost their grip and offered their Motte militia to aid the hunting party.

What they are hunting... well, it's up to them: Wildlings, giants, Boltons, bears, beavers, Boltons... did I mention Boltons?


Anyways, the final army will field:
12 mounted hearthguards with banner - Lyanna heavy guard.
12 foot soldiers with banner - Bear Fighters. They do have 2H weapons, but for the Franks rules they'll have to be counted as regular warriors.
12 foot lancers with banner - Deepwood Motte Militia. A mere apologize for the previous backstabbing by the Glovers.
8 crossbowmen - Bear Hunters.
Additionally, 12 longbowmen (levies) - reinforcement from the Northern Mountain Clans - mostly Burleys.

I've started laying some colours on the longbowmen, to warm up and test colour schemes and bases. Since - so they say - winter is coming, i've chosen an autumnal look.





Some pics of the other WIPS so far: still missing all the fur, but still.











Here a close-up of the three banners (the two infantry units and the heavy cavalry). The flags are made in resin - still have to produce a good tutorial for those - and details are from various kits.



Feedback are appreciated. Smiley
Cheers

Jack

PS: I made (badly) my own dice too!



Cheers again! Smiley

I love the autumn leave bases. It's hard not being a fan of the Mormont ladies, right? I made two for my Stark retinue.

Well now, there's a coincidence. I just happen to have one of those sitting on my desk being painted for a certain female-orientated miniature supplier. And she may just bear an uncanny resemblance to Lady Mormont. Keep your powder dry for a week or so and more will follow!

Thanks! It's all resin, cast by myself. The shields are a veery quick sculpt, but does its job.
The flags are done without a mold, just pouring resin on a flat surface, cutting it in shape and bending it before curing. Works every time! Smiley

aww, i'll wait. Sad

I have the Oldhammer Repanse de Lyonesse miniature and thought I'd use her as a young lady Mormont.

Thanks to you! Your thread is very inspiring! Smiley
I'm trying to keep the style more omogeneous (besides, i don't have all those other kits and sprues) but your models are pretty much what i'm after!

Just seen on the the Bad Squiddo FB page, the 'Jarl Letty' (presumably the best a man can get) miniature/s (mounted and foot versions) are available now and will be at the show tomorrow (Derby is it?).

I'm now building the first hearthguards, and i've completed the first one.
I'm now really not sure about the small flags on the lances: Do you think it's an appropriate fitting for mormonts? or maybe leaving the bare lances is better for the setting?

They're great! Imo there is no such thing as too many flags in a Westerosian army!
