Small scale War of the roses
« on: September 24, 2020, 09:26:41 AM »
I am jumping on the war of the roses bandwagon.
I have never really had much interest in this/these wars as I get completely lost in all the kings and shifting allegiances. But now I am giving it a go.

On a spur of the moment thing my gaming buddy Erik and me ordered 10mm armies from Pendraken. It later turned out I had one in the leadpile already that I had bought on a whim years ago... ::)

But this time I fully intend to paint up an army of Lancasters. Hence this thread. Also perhaps to put some preasure on Erik for him to get his lot of traitorous Yorkist painted ud.

This is my first try with 10mm miniatures. They are perhaps a bit on the dark side of things. I might try to lighten them up a bit.

Initially the plan was to try out the old Bloddy Barons from Peter Pig. But I guess we will give the Billhooks a chance as well.

I've played Bloody Barons's V.1 but I understand V.2 is out now and is quite different?

Stop tempting me! I've got to paint my galley fleets first!

I have finished up a mob of infantry. This lot is raised by Henry Beaufort Duke of Sommerset.

I can finally present my first bit for a Yorkist force. Warwick and some royal forces along with a large mercenary pike block. They have also brought some handgunners and artillery with them.

This is pretty much what you get in a 10 mm army deal from Pendraken. I have placed a new order for more reinforcements. At the moment our plans are to use Bloody Barons with units mainly 8 bases strong.















Cheers
Erik
