A Return To My ECW project (update July 2nd)
« on: June 03, 2018, 07:03:11 PM »
After spending the better part of 18 months working on terrain I am returning to my ECW project. I bought two Warlord Games Pike and Shotte Battalia many moons ago, (not long after they were released actually) with the intention of turning them into a Royalist force. From the original purchase (a few other "items" have been procured since... ::)) I have an Infantry regiment to complete; a squadron of cavalry; and 10 Firelocks to finish.

A sleeve of shot for the red regiment:


better pictures are available on my blog for those that are interested.

Beautiful! Well done! Eager to see more of you!
How would I like such a sleeve on my arm!  :)

Thank you guys.  :)

The second shotte formation is now done; another regiment finished!

I took a couple of photos of the whole regiment as it was finished.


A couple more pictures on my blog.

 A regiment of Royalist cavalry finished:


With that, a major milestone in my ECW project has been reached: two Warlord Games Battalia box sets completely painted:

That's a very nice looking force, as was mentioned previously the tone of red on the red regiment really works well.  I found the stick on swords to be a  bit of a pain (always falling off).

Yeah, they are. They fall off or break.

Fantastic work!

Nothing beats the look of a large, neatly-painted army on square bases.
