Thanks  :)

So, the project to reconstitute my ever-expanding Wars of the Roses collection into 'Never Mind the Billhooks'-sized units continues...

To this end, I've painted a few more figures (and repainted the livery on a few more, not shown below) which will allow me to round out five more units, four of which are mounted knights / cavalry.

Here are the five new mounted figures - I'll show you how they fit into their reconstituted units once I've lined 'em up and taken their pictures - plus two new crossbowmen.

Two of the mounted figures are metal. Honestly (I've said it before, I know) they are nowhere near as good as the plastics. Quite roughly realised - especially the riders. But since I've had them sitting in a box for years, I figured I might as well use them...  ::)








The two new Milanese crossbowmen let me round out a second unit of Italian mercenary skirmishers for Billhooks, thusly...




Joining the newly constituted handgunners - all of whom have been previously pictured somewhere up above (I think ::))




This does leave me a few Milanese odds and ends... Not sure what I'm going to do with them, so for the time being I'm going to use them for purely decorative purposes  lol

Thanks gents  :)

Here are the first of my reconstituted cavalry units for Billhooks.
Most of these are figures which were done long ago, and already pictured way up above in this thread.
But with a smattering of new additions plus some judicious repainting of liveries, I'm now able to reorganise all my WOTR mounted forces into units of eight plus a leader, for Billhooks.
As you can see, each mounted retinue is a mix of fully armoured and lighter armoured types. For Billhooks purposes, I plan to declare them either Knights or Light Cavalry as need dictates ;)

First up, Fauconberg and Norfolk.

Fauconberg - three new additions.
Norfolk - one new addition and three repaints.

Several more of these reconstituted units to come!
