Feasting in the Great Hall

Knighthood wasn’t all tourneys and battles. There were also feasts! A chance for lords and ladies and noble knights (and maybe a few scroungy monks and men-at-arms down below the salt) to eat and drink and wench to excess. So naturally my collection includes a medieval feast.

The wonderful three-level Great Hall here was built for me by the Kamloopian. The furnishings are mostly from John Eden Studio and Bryan Davis. John Eden also produced a good many of my feasters, especially those at the high table. Others figures glimpsed here are from Rosedale, Sanderson, Mokarex, Little Lead Soldiers, and Hornung Arts.

The usual toy soldier makers produced very few seated medieval lords and knights, however, and almost no seated medieval ladies, so to fill out my benches I had to rely on special commissions and conversions. Matthew Thair, Mike Wohl, John Suriano, Noel Meyer, and Bryan Davis are the talented sculptors, converters, and painters who created the figures I needed, and filled my hall with life.

May your own feasts be long and loud, friends.
