Some more, including parts from the light cavalry set (and a few very minor conversions, see if you can spot them).

Liking the looks of these!

Thanks for all the kind comments. I'm particularly pleased that you seem to like the horses, as I'm still new to painting them.

There is plenty more cavalry (28 so far), but I'll hold off on a group shot until I've upped that number and can assemble them into some good looking units.

In the meantime, here is a load of infantry!

These are all supposed to be 'generic' infantry with polearms... billmen, halberdiers, etc, with a scattering of men-at-arms (one of the units you'll see is noticeably 'heavier', with a higher number of men-at-arms). This is just how they are currently arranged into units - it will change frequently depending on what new stuff I have painted up and how I want to field them in games. All in three ranks, at least 7 wide (I think 9 wide looks the best, and I've got some unit trays for 10 wide too). There are plenty of different flags which can be switched around so it's mixed up for each new game - these are the four I have right now which look the best for these units.

Some of you may have seen some of these in a Game of Thrones thread I started on the fantasy board. That's how this project started, but I've decided to pack that in and make the switch over to proper historical. Fortunately all that really has meant is re-doing the flags, as my Game of Thrones vision was very low-fantasy (pretty much no-fantasy). Two of these flags are from the GoT project, from relatively obscure houses. One I've kept as it's very simple and generic, and the other because I think it looks great (the 'pinup' one - it was for House Piper, and the image was taken from the World Of Ice And Fire book). I'm not sure if there are any historical examples of heraldry with a scantily clad woman like this (as opposed to one more 'saintly'), but I'm inclined to keep it!









And a shot of all of them together, to give you an idea of the sort of games I've been playing...



And closeups.










Sometimes certain faces I paint end up looking really good and full of character... even the often badly cast Perry metals! I think what on this one turned out looking like a scar down his face was some sort of miscast. But it's turned out as one of my favourite faces!
