Legionary 2015 Update

For this show which is my local I was hoping to put on a war of the Roses Game. In fact I had decided to try and do Bosworth. As the show is now only a few months away I have taken stock of where I am. I have to admit I am a long way off having all the troops ready. Too distracted with other eras and a new job. With this in mind I am working on a slightly different approach and intend to do an encounter game. it will probably involve most of the troops I have. Below are a few shoots of the stuff I have painted over the last month or so.

So what have we?

Henry Holland, 3rd Duke of Exeter (27 June 1430 – September 1475), As an Exeter boy myself  born and breed, I just had to have a battle representing him. I currently have a small command base on foot, mounted to come, 1 unit of bills and another of Archers. this will probably increase to 2 of archers.

The figures are:

Archers – Perry Plastics

Bills – Old Glory

Command – Foundry. these are smaller in height when compared to the others so put each figure on a small base to lift them up then hid it with the textured base. all of my units are made up of 3 bases 60mm x 60mm.

Exeter's Battle 1

Exeter’s Battle 1

 

Exeter's battle 2

Exeter’s Battle 2

Burgundian Crossbows

These have been sat on the paint table for about a year half finished.

The figures are Perry plastics with the Pavaise artwork transfers by Little Big Men Studios http://www.littlebigmenstudios.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=1

I might stick a few arrows in to the pavaises and surrounding ground for dramatic effect.

That’s all for now.

  1. It looks like the old glory wotr figs and the perry plastics mix ok? I think I’d like to get some old glory levy figs to go with the perry’s I’m using as the retinues.

    • They certainly fit better than the Foundry figures. That said some of the figures are hit and mmiss.
      I wouldn’t get their mounted knights again as the horses are way too thin. I think some of the 100 years war range would be good for the less well off units.
      One of the real benefits is the great value for money.
      I will try to get some better photos. I have used some 100years war range in my Scottish Independence units. They are great.
