I managed to finish a unit of archers this week. I will use them as levies. They look probably a little too dressed up for a bunch of vulgar peasants, but farmers in russian tales wear always quite colourful outfits. Also, those are dwarves after all, or Dvergers as I decided to call them for a more Vicking flavour, and these guys tend to make up for their short size with some trappings of wealth.

Looking closely at the picture, one might notice a slight alteration in style. I actually painted a first batch of 8 figures, six months ago, and I added four more to reach the number of levies needed for Saga. Meanwhile, I have grown more confident with the technic and details I use on them, and the last four are tin metal figures instead of plastic. I think one can really notice that the carving is somehow sharper.

|Careful, this one is big...|
Now, I only have to finish a warlord and four Hearthguards to get those Dvergers ready to rip spine...
