Charlie - thats fantastic progress (I'm defiantly in the painting slow lane) - all looking great and I like the tones you've got - nice and realistically gritty but with enough brighter colours which the medieval folk wore.

Glad you all like them!

Yes I've recently brightened up my palette a bit. I've become very aware that the shiny new pikeman unit is MUCH more colourful than the drab, dirty polearm units!

I rather liked your subdued palette for your earlier units but I have to say that latest offerings have just that right touch of subdued clothing and bright metals that seem to be the perfect match.  Keep them coming.  :-* :-*

Only just catching up with this as I edge through my own Perry plastics mountain. Love the whole collection you’ve produced - similar in style to the realistic and gritty palette I try to go for.

Gone through every page in a bit of a blur - these are amazing. Had I the chance to redo my semi-historical/fantasy force again, I'd be tempted to jump them three hundred years forward and use the Perry miniatures as a base, rather than as bits for conversions.

Any chance of a whole army shot?

I played a game today, and was going to post up a full battle report, but decided it didn't really make for a very good one... But I got some good close-up shots which I think worked well, so thought I'd share!

This is actually my first game in almost a year - it was last summer I had my last game! Since then the collection has grown quite a bit, which generally makes for better, more satisfactory games and more variety between games. As usual, there were various aspects of how the game flowed that gave me things to ponder on this evening, and how the rules could be tweaked and streamlined more.








I've been working on expanding the cavalry lately, and later this summer should hopefully have a post to show you how it now stands (the target is 62 cavalry - just 12 more to paint!)

Ok, here's a brief run-down.

Shaun was defending, with fences and wagons to provide cover. I was attacking from the right of the board.



As I advanced towards him, he sent his cavalry out to meet mine.



He managed to beat back my best cavalry unit, which included my commander (who luckily escaped harm), but my second unit rode in to save the day and together both units sent his cavalry packing. Meanwhile my side was suffering quite a bit from crossbow fire.



As my cavalry chased his off the board, his pikemen were suddenly in danger of being caught in the open and outflanked.



But he managed to sort his battle-line out and my weakened cavalry didn't really have much success against his infantry. Meanwhile my infantry had reached his defences, leading to several turns of melee which swung back and forth over the barricades.



Though it went in his favour, and all my forces were driven back.



I reformed my troops for one final assault across the line, but it was futile and I conceded defeat!
