Title: Perry Tudor Conversions, new standing figures page 53
Post by: Stuart on April 29, 2015, 08:42:35 AM
I was itching to see what could be achieved with some sculpted additions to the light cavalry box. For me and I'm sure many others this has been a long and eagerly awaited release, in my case I've been hoping to create some early 1500's French Ordonnance archers and the first effort isn't too bad if I do say so myself !

To achieve the shape of the base coat skirt I had to glue the rider to the horse which may prove tricky when painting. I may try different ways of doing this but nothing springs to mind as yet.

Looks good  :)

Could you sculpt part of a horse and saddle as a temporary figure mount when sculpting the figures?

Excellent work Stuart  :-* :-* :-*

You talented so and so  ;) :)

Re: my comments about Procreate being less tacky at Salute? Well, I bought some more, as the other stuff was more then three years old and it was more tacky than usual but not as tacky as the older stuff- of course it could have been the mixing ratio that but I think I prefer the stuff that's three years old and probably going off!!

Neat looking conversion, look forward to seeing it in glorious colour.

I always paint cavalry with the rider in place, and rarely have difficulty painting them.

Nice work. :)

Plastic bits and metal horse - superglued? If you've glued it lightly enough is there a chance you could wiggle the bond loose and take the rider off intact, greenstuff and all? Could be a bit hairy, though.

Quick out the blocks Stuart !! - and looking excellent. Seems to fit well on the Foundry horse - which is better sized for cavalry who rode into battle.

He is indeed!!

and looking excellent. Seems to fit well on the Foundry horse - which is better sized for cavalry who rode into battle.

Yeah, quite so. They mainly rode horses that were capable of walking! Seriously!! They had a completely different gait to modern horses and indeed the chargers of the same time period. Of course, I've forgotten the name of the said horses but I could look it up eventually when the garage of doom has been tackled!

Title: Re: Perry light cavalry conversion
Post by: Captain Goode on April 30, 2015, 07:45:11 AM
I agree with Phil - I always paint with the rider firmly glued in place. It provides for a tougher bond, as well as ensuring that the rider has the right "seat" before you put paint to figures. Sometimes it needs real care to paint and some re-touching but I prefer the result, and if one is a little worried about the possibility of bare metal/undercoat then a wash of Van Dyke brown into all the shadowy little places before you add the colour soon solves that problem.

Post by: le bon roi rene on April 30, 2015, 12:00:55 PM


I like working with both rider and mount separately during the painting process. My answer is a bit old school. Whether plastic or metal I always drill and pin the rider to his mount. I only attach after painting. Minimizes the glue required but still creates a good bond.

Cheers,
Fred
Title: Re: Perry light cavalry conversion
Post by: Stuart on April 30, 2015, 01:09:29 PM
Thanks for your thoughts chaps.

I also drill and pin as I've found it easier to paint and a stronger bond though I will see how the single cast painting goes as there's some potential for time saving I reckon.

I'll re-post when he's coloured in and his companions currently on the workbench.

Post by: Stuart on June 17, 2015, 02:39:19 PM
Bit of a wait but hopefully worth it. Completed conversion number one. I've got to make him some friends now.

I resisted the temptation to paint the figure in Tudor colours and stayed on message with my current burgeoning Louis XII French army. The figure represents an Ordonnance Archer which has proven to be a most difficult to interpret element of the French Lance of the early 1500's. I have some Coutilliers / Men at arms also as well as the Gendarme but that's the easy bit so I've left it until last.

Anyway, enjoy !

Post by: Stuart on June 21, 2015, 09:13:30 AM
Here's no. 2, loosely based upon Durer's painting of St. Eustachius, quite pleased overall but I'm not sure about the right arm holding the spear, it's the best /most natural looking angle I can get with that arm as my sculpting hasn't advanced to puffed sleeves yet. Also not sure whether to paint it as a light lancer or as a standard bearer, or whether he looks French enough, a bit overly critical perhaps, thoughts?

Masterful stuff Stuart..... I think that this is the best conversion work apart from some that Paul Richardson had specially converted by someone for the Wars of Religion range!! And that is really a great compliment.

I reckon you could make it as a very successful sculptor Stuart.

Ante has been upped I think, feels like I've increased my skills a bit.

Anyways, this trumpeter is based upon Flemish and German influence. Another Ansar head, I was about to sculpt hair and a cap but thought he could be interesting as a moor perhaps? thoughts?

Henry VIII & James IV had moorish musicians, I'm assuming they were imitating courts of the continent though I don't think I've noticed them mentioned or illustrated in French sources ( this chap is destined to accompany some Gendarmes).

Simply excellent work Stuart  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

The folds in the clothing are brilliant.  8) 8) 8)

If Henry VIII employed Moors as musicians in imitation of Continental practice, would they have been sans hat? I don't know about Henry VIII's times but as far as the Battle of Bosworth it was seen as extremely impolite for a male (or female) not to be wearing headgear of some description.

I reckon you should gibe sculpting from scratch a go quite soon if not now  :)

But.
A few minutes admiring your work again is pushing up the stairs to the dusty painting erie.

Well that's great news  :)

I have be looking over all of yours and Captain Blood's posts.
Excellent work, some of the best painting one could wish to see.
So I went and ordered some Perry's to paint.
The ordering was ez, now painting them might be a little tougher.
Thank you both for sharing your talents.

These two have taken a while to get to a stage of satisfaction. First up a rather dandy looking crossbowman in a base coat with slashed sleeves and wide brimmed plumes hat.

Next a light cavalryman, I'll probably use him as a standard bearer. It may not look that hard but the arms were an absolute arse to get right ! I think this is attempt no. 6. Each slash is sculpted seperately and manipulated to the right angle and drop of the cloth. It took a while to get this right. I originally started with adding green stuff then cutting the slashed bits away but it was too heavy and clumsy. This way have a much more convincing feel and has some body to it.

Very pleased with him though, I'm no expert but I don't think sleeves like this would be possible or rather could be very difficult to cast effectively. It's great to be able to achieve individuality in this way.

Foot knight in livery.

I've made an effort to differentiate the skirt of the coat from that of the infantry by sculpting deeper and greater folds to show the amount and depth of rich material used in contrast to the wool of the lower class foot uniform.

Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - Tudor infantry, new sculpts added
Post by: Stuart on June 15, 2016, 01:40:28 PM
It's taken me a while to get to this point in sculpting a reasonably convincing coat, the hardest part of which I've found to be the skirt. If you look back through this thread you'll see that development.

How to do it just comes down to practice but I've found a couple of tricks along the way which I shall share as follows.

Here I'm working on the back half of a skirt having already done the front. It's not really possible to sculpt the entire front and back without obscuring and smudging detail as you go so I do it this way.

I've prepared the figure by filling in the gap from the rump of the figure down to the knees so there's a flat edge for the GS to adhere to rather than a void to fill then sculpt in one go. I then started by rolling some green stuff (GS) to the rough shape required then pushing it up to the belt line and to each side where it joins the already sculpted front.

It's really important to get this part right, move the GS around to the depth and length that you require. I use a wax 5 tool for most of the sculpting I've attempted. For this part, get a bit of moisture on the tool with a very small amount of liquid paraffin cream, this will make moving the GS easier and faster. I put a little on my hand and take more from there as I need it.

To get this shape I use the flat of the blade and push the GS down from the top and out to give a slight bow from the middle to the bottom, don't use too much pressure and work in a series of motions from one side to the other, checking from the sides as you go, you want a good curve or half bell shape. It's important to get the depth right as this will dictate how deep the folds will be.

When you're happy with the starting shape cut off any excess from the bottom, I use a Stanley blade.

A pedant after my own heart. lol

The practise paid dividends, I'd say. Very impressive work. (And the painting!) Apologies for not going back over the whole topic, but have you sculpted any full figures?

(Oop. And sorry for interrupting the flow)
Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - Tudor infantry, new sculpts added
Post by: Stuart on June 15, 2016, 01:47:35 PM
To start the folds I use a tool from a dental scaling kit. I've no idea what it's called but you can get a basic kit quite easily.

I previously used the edge of the wax 5 to create deep folds but this works better as it gives a more linear and gentler starting point.

Post by: Stuart on June 15, 2016, 01:52:57 PM
Now use the wax 5 tool to develop the folds. It's difficult to describe but I work on each fold by gently pushing it from the top in a left to right motion, first from one side then the other to build a 3D half pipe shape which is tapered at the top.

Then extend this wave into the next fold and so on.

Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - Tudor infantry, new sculpts added
Post by: Stuart on June 15, 2016, 01:57:16 PM
When working on these 'Waves' you can impart movement or hang of the material depending on the gait or stance of the figure.

Also as you near completion flatten the bottom of each fold from the underside to create a cut off, this will also push a little body from the bottom and make the fold a bit more pronounced.

When you're happy with the folds add a little Nick or gentle line from the top of each fold about one third down to imitate the pull of material where The pleat is sewn to the belt line.

Here's the rear view of the painted figure above. It is in a more active pose so I have sculpted the skirt to hang in the stance / lean of the figure.

Once the skirt was done I then added a little GS on the front and back from the hem up. On the back here I have squared off the neck line and put a join in the middle back where the jacket parts were sewn together.

A little off-topic, but perhaps quite relevant regarding this particular period is the excellent novel (well, series actually) is C.J. Sansom's 'Heartstone' where part of the novel covers the sinking of Henry VIII's flagship (?) Mary Rose which was loaded to the brim with troops - particularly longbowmen. Now, in the novel, Sansom goes into considerable detail (after his usual meticulous research) on the army of Henry VIII - particularly in the área of their weaponry, training and day-to-day life. Personally, since reading this particular book, i've always had an urge to do something in this period. Probably why your work is so inspiring! Keep 'em coming!  :)

I love the Yeomen of the Guard. Apparently one of my ancestors was one of the Guards of Henry VIII. Only reason we know this was because the got titled 'Sir' and was given a house and pension after saving this Henry's life. It wasn't any thing to glamorous I am afraid. King was drunk and feel into a stream an almost drowned. Edmond Moody used his pole to jump across the stream and drag the Royal person out.  lol

Of course I my family is very much removed from any person of that might own any clime to the title, but I thought it was a good read when I found out about it. Ether way, would be an excuse for me to make some Yeomen and maybe even A young up in comer with the Family coat of arms.

And thank you for the book idea Jim Rae, I will have to check out Mr.  C.J. Sansom's 'Heartstone' series of books.

Commissarmoody, the series is within the Shardlake series.

Commissar - the first 'Dissolution' is a bit rough around the edges (Sansom's first novel) but they steadily improve from there. They give a great feel for life in Henrician London with the increasing concern that what it was okay to believe last week may get you executed this week. They are murder mystery type books more than anything else.

Aplogies for going off topic. That is super sculpting Stuart.

Do you think the WoTR figures can be converted for mid-late 16th century?

I would say not.
If you look at the Foundry Sea Dogs range as a good example of late Tudor (kind of Armada era, say 1580 - 1600) fashion in wardrobe styles, never mind arms and equipment has moved on fairly radically from the 1460s-1470s 'Peak WOTR' era. A very different look altogether.
WOTR is really still medieval world.
Elizabethan Tudor is early modern. Rather more in common with early ECW than late WOTR, wardrobe and arms and equipment-wise.

Lovely figures by the way, Stuart  :)

(PS. Personally, I hate the Shardlake series. Boring, repetitive, and too many mistakes. I gave up buying the after the third one... )

Fabulous figures , spot on as always, what set do the hands on the last figure come from?  To me they seem larger than the other hands, or maybe it's just the angle of the photo.  Glad to see more of your 16th century conversions of the Perry wotr chaps.

Not really no, the base coat was a feature of the early Tudor period up until around 1525 after which the uniform jackets are shorter.
Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - Tudor infantry, new sculpt 29 June
Post by: Stuart on June 29, 2016, 10:08:16 AM
Here are two near contemporary studies, 1513 & 1544 the main difference being that the coat extends to or slightly further than the knee in the earlier period.

Loosely with a bit of artistic license Simon, for my Tudors, Henry used Moors as musicians in the early part of his reign no doubt influenced by Catherine of Aragon. Also the leader of this unit, Thomas Grey, campaigned in Spain,  hopefully see more soon.

I remember reading something, a while ago... I think it was this article (http://www.historyextra.com/feature/missing-tudors-black-people-16th-century-england) when it was printed in the magazine. African people in Tudor Britain isn't an uncommon subject when you google for other sites.

Thanks all, very much indeed, it's been a long process to this result.

I don't think I'll be sculpting on anything other than my own collection, I sculpt on to existing Perry figures and like kit bashing and sculpting to see what I can create, the sculpting being an extension of that.

This thread has demonstrated a line from fairly crude experiments to some with more convincing results (I think), I guess as much as I use it to value critique and encouragement I wanted to show that a bit of sculpting can add an extra level of detail with not necessarily that much effort.

I hope it's inspired a few to take the plunge or to paint some obscure early renaissance types. I love LAF, always good for inspiration and glad to contribute in my own way.

Rambled a bit there, anyway, Thanks again  :)

My Green Stuff adventures have turned to casualty markers.

I've had these warbases dial casualty markers for quite a while now and never done anything with them - not gaming that often probably didn't help but not anymore.

I think i'll try and get into the habit of doing one of these for every unit that I complete.

All figures are from the Sudan Ansar box with various WOTR, Foot Knights & Mercenaries arms added, I think there's even a WW2 one in there too.

First up, we have a Tudor and a French casualty

The Tudor Longbowman has come off worse from a fight with an unknown assailant, his sword broken and a rather nasty open fracture on the foot he pleads with the attacker - or judging by the expression perhaps wills on the coup de grace.

Accompanying him is a French Arquebusier sporting a heavy blow across the face, writhing in agony he clutches his rosary beads in acceptance of his fate.

I was going to use the word nice, to describe these, but they are far to evocative of pain and death for that.

But they are very good, and highly effective. They make the big dials much more terrain rather than just a marker.
Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - Artillery crew 10th August
Post by: Stuart on August 10, 2016, 03:46:20 PM
3 crew converted from the two available Perry WOTR culverin packs.

left to right the chap with the breech was perhaps the simplest conversion; I added GS to his arms to give more voluminous sleeves typical of the early 1500's and did a head swap from a Wargames Foundry Landsknecht (also Perry sculpted), he wears the red & yellow livery of Louis XII.

The master gunner wears a woollen base coat in national colours, the base coat was added after the figure was prepared; I filed away about 1-2mm off the torso and created a GS fill between the legs, allowed it to dry and then sculpted the coat on top. The filing / cutting in the gap between the arms and body was quite fiddly but I think it's turned out OK.

Finally, the chap with the sponge was perhaps the most difficult sculpt, the puffed sleeves are quite hard to get right in terms of how much volume there is in the material and how much I can emphasise the fold in each pull of material. The head is a plastic Ansar head with added GS cloth hat - get yourself a box, they're a must have !
I also built up the breastplate a bit and altered it to look like a maximilian style breast plate in the latest fashion.

So, a small crew of chaps with some money spent on them by their lord to fire guns at unsuspecting Tudors.

Another Casualty marker, having knocked him to the ground, a Tudor billman kneels on his opponent pushing his head forward to expose the neck to a finishing sword thrust.

Really pleased with this one, I had a go at a bellows visor and I've cracked how to sculpt belts (which can't really be seen here, doh !)

Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - 16c. NEW Early Tudor Pike 21 November
Post by: Steel fist on November 23, 2016, 01:05:24 PM
Press moulded or not you have still applied the armour in a very convincing way which is a mark of talent and good perspective as many pro sculptors have trouble getting things to have weight, proportion and look alive and you have achieved this I think with a little more practice you will be able to sculpt this no problem.
 
Stuart: please forgive my ignorance, but what do you mean by a 'press mould'?
Press moulding is when you use the origanal figure press it into a moulding substance and once removed you put putty in the mould and apply the pattern to a mini your working on.

Thanks Oliver, it's a shortcut but not a straightforward one but it does add options for aspects that I'm not confident to sculpt or simply to save time on.

Great stuff! Each time you post something it shows your skills are improving. You've gone from better to betterer.    :D

The helmet you posted earlier is actually a 15th Century sallet re-purposed to look like a burgonet; probably by a dodgy second-hand armour dealer.

That mounted German/Swiss crossbowman in burgonet is a beautiful piece of sculpting.

Stunning work on those French fellas.
A totally unique unit in every sense of the word.

Also, every time I look at your pictures of the figures 'in situ' it reminds me that I really need to make some more realistic greenery for my own games.
Your results are outstanding.

Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - 16c. NEW Pikemen update 16 January
Post by: Stuart on January 16, 2017, 10:20:40 AM
The pikemen are moving along, I've done quite a few since the last update of the figures in armour, here's the commander, a nobleman shouldering pike in the front rank in the Swiss fashion receiving instruction from a mercenary captain (also a conversion).

The commander is a Perry foot knight body with a mix of arms from the WOTR & mercenaries boxes with a steel fist head from their mounted Knights pack. These heads are fantastic, lots of ideas for these.

Now if we're ever to do some Scots, this would be the format 😜

Unit hopefully complete by the end of the month if I get a wriggle on

Two more brilliant little creations Stuart  :-*

Does Oliver supply his heads separately, or are you butchering whole figures to get these?
Title: Re: Perry green stuff Conversions - 16c. NEW Pikemen update 16 January
Post by: Stuart on January 16, 2017, 11:58:21 AM
Thanks Richard

Each of the mounted knight packs come with 4 seperate head and plume variants IIRC. I don't think these are available seperately as a pack but that would be very useful if they were hint hint Oliver if you're out there 🤔

Interesting idea, an after-market in plastic figures for wargamers.  I wonder what other campaigns/periods might benefit from that.

Seeing more Tudor figures from you will be the real benefit but I would be interested if you were able to make these more widely available.

I did not realise the Wargames Foundrty gendarmes had so much detail in their armour , or is it a question of you painting on additional detail? Have you had a chance to paint up any of the Steelfist gendarmes?
Title: Re: Tudor Conversions
Post by: Stuart on August 05, 2017, 04:15:29 PM
The horse armour is plain so it lends itself very well to painting decorated panels. I'm sad to say that I haven't painted any of the SF gendarmes yet despite having all of them.

I'm keen to create a lance of SF gendarmes with converted men at arms and archers in support. They're excellent figures and I'm looking forward to doing them justice.

Good aren't they. I've seen helmets and sometimes 1 or 2 swords hanging from saddles too which I might try.

The head is from my much used box of Perry Ansar. This one had thick hair which I cut and filed off then replaced. The box is very useful for all sorts of conversions
Title: Re: Tudor Conversions, mounted archers update
Post by: Captain Blood on August 29, 2017, 09:57:36 PM
Ah yes. Recognise him now. Quite different without the afro!

I did suggest a while back to Michael Perry that they might consider producing a generic set of heads and body parts for the converter. But I guess that would be of limited appeal to the great wargaming public, given the scale of investment required to produce a plastic set. But you know... generic bodies in legging and shirts. Some bare arms, some shirtsleeve arms... Some bare heads, some in soft hats, some bearded... Maybe some livestock too... Dogs, cats, chickens. Could be adaptable as civilians from the medieval to Napoleonic, and provide a host of conversion possibilities...

One can but hope...  :)
Title: Re: Tudor Conversions, mounted archers update
Post by: Stuart on August 29, 2017, 10:32:36 PM
I would buy up their entire stock !

The Ansar are good for that but the pose is limiting. Heads and arms however are great and the bodies are easy to make casualties out of too.

If there were a similar box of ahem scantily clad chaps in standing poses I'd be very happy.

I've thought ancients might lend themselves to this but I haven't been able to find anything yet - not looked that hard to be honest so all suggestions welcome.
Title: Re: Tudor Conversions, mounted archers update

Post by: Stuart on March 29, 2018, 11:46:18 AM
Bagpipes and a variety of other instruments were present at the Tudor court. They were also common in Northern France.

The inspiration for the pipes in a military fashion came from this German source upon viewing Henry’s army in array in 1513;

He had not many mounted men, but had his footguards or halberdiers with him, of whom about 300 all clad in one colour ran with him on foot. [From a tower the King showed the Emperor] what belonged to the town (the town of Therouanne and state of the siege). Whilst both lords were on the tower the King had placed all his people who were in camp in lines everywhere three or four deep. He conducted the Emperor through to inspect this. They are really big strong men having a captain to every hundred, and their pennon on a long spear as our horsemen carry them. It is carried with both hands in front against the breast. Some have English bows, some crossbows, certain of them maces with long handles and certain of them long spears; and almost all are clad in long white coats edged with green cloth and wear breast plates, and steel caps on their heads. For their field music they have a fluteplayer (schalm) and a bagpiper (sackpfeiffer) who play together and certain of them a trumpet."

Wonderful as always and an excellent blog post.  :)

One of the suggestions I've come across for the origins of the term 'demi-lance', is that the archetypes of that class came alone to muster, i.e. without custrel and page, as would be the case with a 'lance' (or 'spear') or man at arms proper. So 'part-lance/half-lance' may be the root of the term.

The man at arms at 12d a day disappeared from around 1492, the 'man at arms' proper now got the old 24d 'knight rate' (to help finance his mini-retinue and spare mounts), while the demi-lance just got the 9d rate formerly paid to 'foot men at arms' (who did have a horse) and 'scowrers' etc.

Back in the days of English armies fighting largely on foot, there was no need to distinguish between 'lesser men at arms' and their betters.
Title: Re: Perry Tudor Conversions, the latest unit Demilancers ! page 47
Post by: Stuart on November 15, 2018, 02:16:10 PM
Thanks Jim

I wasn’t aware of the etymology in that respect as I thought it was just that they carried a short lance. But that (as always from your good self) makes perfect sense !

I’ll add it to the post if you don’t mind
Title: Re: Perry Tudor Conversions, the latest unit Demilancers ! page 47
Post by: Arlequín on November 15, 2018, 05:33:13 PM
Hi Stuart, by all means do.  :)

It shouldn't be read that demi-lancers didn't become associated with their lighter or shorter spears over time, nor that a chronicler coming across the term for the first time did not just make an assumption that demi-lance referred to their weapon of choice. In a chicken and egg thing infantry 'staves' (spears) became known as 'half-pikes' when used on foot, not that many years on from this.

Certainly references to mounted 'staves' from the Mid-15th Century might indicate a competing term to 'demi-lance' that appeared a little later, by virtue of the weapon used and ultimately the two seem to become almost by-words for heavy lancer and heavier lancer in your era. 

Here's to the wonderously vague terminology of the 15th-16th Centuries!  ;)

Post by: Metternich on November 16, 2018, 07:31:49 PM
Jim, thanks for the scholarly explanation for the etymology of the term demilance.
 I think another distinction is that while the gendarmes (or true "man at arms") of the early Tudor period in full plate rode a barded horse, the demilances rode unbarded horses.

 I think another distinction is that while the gendarmes (or true "man at arms") of the early Tudor period in full plate rode a barded horse, the demilances rode unbarded horses.

Thanks, glad it struck a chord. I would say that you are almost certainly correct that all demi-lances rode unbarded horses. Whether all men at arms had them by the early years of the 16th Century, I'll leave Stuart to ponder and discuss.

 ;)

We had a discussion a while ago on it as regards the 15th Century and despite most of us thinking the French and Burgundians led the way, it turned out there was very little evidence, other than Charles the Bold suggesting to his men at arms that it would be a good idea to bard their horses if they could. It was a bit like the government with motorcyclists today; "You have to wear a helmet, but we're not going to stop you riding around in your shorts if you can't run to a set of leathers".

In my mind there was probably a process that saw the 'true' men at arms get fewer due to the cost, but those that didn't descend into the demi-lances were the type of folk who could bear the expense regardless. So fewer men at arms = higher incidence of barded horses, until all men at arms had barded horses by default.

This process wasn't confined to England either. By the end of the 15th Century, France's Ordonnance 'Archers' were predominantly younger sons of chivalrous families. Some were there because age entry into the gendarmes was a year older than required for the archers, but many simply didn't have the money (or credit) to fund the equipment, horses and lifestyle. I doubt there were many 'low-born' professionals in the corps after the end of the HYW and a few of the famous gendarmes of the 16th Century started their careers as 'teen archers' for a year or so.

Lockdown project no. 7 I think.

Some standing figures to go with Perry mercenaries / WOTR arms.

These are converted from the Steel Fist Landsknecht artillery crew. I hope to have 8 but couldn’t resist sharing the work in progress.

All being well these will be cast up at some point and available, don’t know an idea of time at the moment, I’ll put an update on that when there’s further progress.

They’re pretty good though and as ever they’ve been a huge trial and error lesson in putty pushing.

Hope you like em

What Stuart says, is that the dollies will be cast up - not the temporary examples he shows here using Perry parts on the green dollies.
Also doubt that Steel Fist will be demanding royalties for the use of their ankles and feet. Stuart and Simon (who owns Steel Fist) are the best of friends, long term collaborators, and gaming buddies.

It pays to be abreast of the facts before casting aspersions.

I would hazard a guess that if these become commercially available one day, it might be Steel Fist that ends up selling them, as happened with the previous dollies by Stuart:

https://www.steelfistminiatures.com/product/wfd-10.-tudor-dollies/

I do actually have a dozen of those dollies, though I have not yet glued any arms or heads to them. Still good to hear that more variants, in more static poses, might be coming up in the future.
Title: Re: Perry Tudor Conversions, standing figures page 49
Post by: Stuart on January 12, 2021, 04:58:46 PM
Apologies for any confusion.

The first pack of dollies were made, cast and distributed by me with the approval of Perry Miniatures - they were specifically created to take the arms of the WOTR plastic sets. Initially not commercially I might add.

They did quite well and I made the decision to offer ownership and production over to Steel Fist Miniatures.

This process is pretty much the same. I’ve a load of spare arms left over from the mercenaries sets and in anticipation of making some 16c figures from them I’m hoping to use existing channels to get them cast again.

Both manufacturers who are supportive of the venture and good friends, will benefit from this and I’ll get some new figures to paint.

Hope that clears things up.

And very quickly sold out  :D

Hopefully not too long for a re-stock, here’s a quick look at a couple of painted examples without conversion, an English archer in Stanley livery snd a Scots arquebusier in Douglas livery.

Also some figures I’ve started to convert with them, I’ll post up further progress soon.

Lots of possibilities for these.

Here’s my back of a fag packet list of potential uses

Cheers Stuart! Half of my wants to say "thanks, I didn't think of that" and the other half, "begone ye Satan"  lol So many more ideas!!!

I bought them to use as retinue pike for Flodden and have a lot of the first set of dollies to use for Retinue Archers etc. I'm hoping I can manage the sleeves- a bit of practice and they ought to be doable- the most difficult part of the project is going to be some of the armours on some of the Billmen etc. A subtle change from the later stages of the Wars of the Roses but one that is essential to get right.

I'll pop over to your blog sometime and see how you managed the leg armours etc :)

Title: Re: Perry Tudor Conversions, standing figures page 49
Post by: Stuart on March 29, 2021, 11:44:57 AM
Here’s a couple mocked up as pike.

You could add sleeves to create a livery coat or leave them as is as the wearers own jacket.

If you want to maintain the original sense of movement that the pike arms were designed for you could do a leg swap.

Alternatively you could find suitable arms in a standing pose and convert them.

Interesting. I didn't think of that. I will probably do split; the Liveries soldiers with sleeves (one I've practiced on some plastics) and leave the rest in their own jacks as you say.

If you want to maintain the original sense of movement that the pike arms were designed for you could do a leg swap.

Those are lovely Stuart. I do see what you mean about maintaining the sense of movement, no matter how subtle.

Alternatively you could find suitable arms in a standing pose and convert them.

There will be conversions for sure. I'm looking at the whole Flodden thing as a (very) long term project. It's been hard enough trying to collate the requisite heraldic banners and standards etc. As I said, the biggest problem I'm going to have is converting some of the armours. I was thinking of making some castings with Green Stuff World's Blue Stuff. I've tried it out a couple of times using plastic parts but I have not found it easy at all. Having said that, I'm sure my technique will improve with practice- or should I say I hope?  lol

Of course, the banner bearer is utterly outstanding, but then you look at the others and see as much care is taken in the faces of archers or the bowstrings of crossbowmen as in all his finery.

Really, really wonderful.
