English / Scottish villagers
« on: October 30, 2019, 08:51:56 AM »
Hello everybody. Could anybody recommend villager miniatures from 1346 to Otterburn 1388? Was there any major appearance differences between Scottish and English folk of this time?

The Perry HYW Peasants would be more or less fine if you're talking Lowland Scots:

They do.

The archer on the right is a Claymore castings mini:



As above, the archer on the right is again a Claymore Castings mini:



It's worth remembering that the Claymore Casttings packs Archers packs 3 and 4 are sculpted by someone else than the mini's featured above. I don't see that this would make any difference size wise as I know David is very much committed to getting the range just right.

Thats really useful thank you. I m thinking hopefully the locals can be used either for border Scots and Northern English in Durham or Northumbria.
