Got stuck into the first foot regiment. Had a plan to try and make a really interesting looking battle set. I wanted different factions on each side, but wanted it to work as a game. So regiment one is on the French, Austrian and Russian side is a regiment of Russian Foot. Just need to… Continue reading Seven Year War, Russians
This year has been quite a lot of historical (they aren’t that funny) models. For a bit of a shift in gears I picked up some Minotaur in the Mierce Miniatures sale. Now the sale doesn’t make them that cheap but they weren’t quite at GW prices and they are nice sculpts. I have only… Continue reading Minotaur
Ok so I am starting the 11th army in about six months. I am painting roughly three models a day and I do not have much of a good reason for any of it! And also yes I may have a toy soldier painting compulsion issue. So the order from Front Rank contained 5 foot… Continue reading Seven Years War, the new Project
So here is the full army in one place!
So this is the final unit in a 2000 point Spanish Christian army. I am really pleased with the shields and overall look of the unit. Again Footsore Bretons but so cool. So that is all of the SCs done!
I think I have spelt that right. These guys are the middle class / poorer knights. So in my scale more uniform looking. They count as heavy cavalry but don’t think of them as smashing through blocks of infantry and handing it out. They movement 8 blokes with sticks. This doesn’t mean they are rubbish,… Continue reading Caballeros Villanos
Tom reckons these are filthy in the game so I have only painted 10, have another 10 just in case I need to rethink the tactic. These again hail from the Footsore Norman range. I am leaning heavily on these guys as the style really suits the army and the guys at FS are really… Continue reading Spanish Crossbows
Project El CID was born out of needing something interesting to do but had to use some of my existing miniatures. In this way although purchases were made (@FootsoreUK) I was working my way through the lead pile! So with the striking theme of Red and Yellow (some of you may have missed it) and… Continue reading Jinetes II
Apologies for the delay I have been cracking on with painting without posting, fear not this shall be rectified! These lads will be in skirmish formation but for painting and moving purposes it is much easier to stick them in a tray! The red and yellow really pop and can’t wait to see the whole… Continue reading Spanish Christian Archers
I am starting to worry that I am painting an army that I am unable to pronounce any of the units names within it! These fellas are light cavalry who’s job to to deal with there opposite numbers in other armies and try and grapple for the flanks. My whole game plan is basically about… Continue reading Unit 1 of Jinetes
