Peasants, Knights and Civilians for the Tales of Shedwood

Just a quick update on the Tales of Shedwood project.....

I now have all the figures required to make this happen and a few photos of these are here...

In total I have accumulated

Fireforge Crusader Infantry – 48 men at arms
Fireforge Mounted Seargents – 12 mounted seargeants
Fireforge Mounted Templar Knights – 12 mounted knights
Fireforge Templar Infantry/Knights – 24 men at arms/knights

The Crusaders (Fireforge)
Some Foundry Foot Knights

Foundry Dismounted Knights – 10 figures
Foundry Civilians – 75 Figures
Foundry/Black Tree Design – Peasants – 30 Figures
Clergy (mix of figures from Redoubt, Foundry & Blacktree) – 12 Figures

Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck – secured the special Bretonnian pack off ebay
Robin Hood, Friar Tuck & Little John (still to be finished)
The Merry Men – 30 archers from a variety of sources and periods including Foundry, Black Tree Design

The Merry Men
All in all a total of around – 260 Figures

Of these I have now painted around 75% of the figures – the finished product should be done by the end of the year (hopefully)

I am planning to use the Saga rules for this game (some boards have been identified) with a four player based game.


Robin Hood, his merry men, local villagers
The Sheriff of Nottingham and town militia
Guy of Gisbourne and his mercenary knights
King Richard, and his royal retinue

All looking good


  1. Nice painting. Looking forward to the finished project and maybe some AAR's.

  2. Looking good. Can't wait to see it all together with the castle.
