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.
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.
