Medieval Civilians

One thing I really like about my friend Dalauppror's lovely terrain set-ups, is his use of extras such as civilians. It really gives life to the scenes on the tabletop and helps transform the game into an exciting story.

I've always wanted to do something like this for my own games and now, with my dark age village finished, I've finally taken the time to actually do it.


The miniatures are from Black Tree Design's Feudal Range and perhaps more suited to the proper medieval period, rather than the dark ages, but why be picky?


Fifty shades of ... brown.


They will make their first appearance on the tabletop this coming Monday as villagers, in the first game of our new Dux Britanniarum campaign. More about this later.

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Love the careful attention in the highlighting - really smooth painting. That girl "fertilizing" the grass should fit right in there for a rough and uncivilized Dark Age game or perhaps a Valborg celebration in Folkets Park :0) Have a nice weekend you too!

    1. Thanks Sören! About the fertilizer ... Well, I guess in those days everybody had to chip in and do their part. ;)
