Bloody Borders - Skirmish gaming the Irish Confederate Wars
« on: April 20, 2021, 09:57:41 PM »
Started work on my forces for a project finally set in Ireland.

This will be a skirmish based set of games and campaign for us to play and will likely include items to help theme the project over to the Thirty Years War or English Civil War as well to get maximum use from things.

Anyway... First a little tester.To get started I figured Iíd bash out one of the new Bloody Miniatures 28mm ECW skirmish figures.

These are really excellent models and themed and posed for skirmish games, not rank and file battles, so give a very dynamic look.

Excellent painting.  The figure displays a lot of the character of the 17th century.
