Lovely unit, Richard, but reading this…


That now gives me a mere seven units of mounted knights, which is a wildly impractical total for Billhooks - unless I do an imaginations style clash between a mounted knightly army and a longbow armed footslogger army. (So Agincourt, but 1475 rather than 1415... And sans les Bleus ;))

…made me realize you’re really the only person on the globe who has so many painted models that finding game systems or scenarios to use them all is becoming a chore!  lol

the green does look a bit strong on screen (and I'm on sRGB), but the figures and painting are just wonderful as ever.

Thank you.
To be fair, digital photography and a backlit screen does tend to intensify the colour saturation. They’re certainly not quite as bright as this to the naked eye. They do stand out on the tabletop though  ;)

After a bit of a hiatus, back on it...

Finally got round to painting my second company of Scottish pikemen for Billhooks. These are the Warsteel bodies with Perry heads (pictured undercoated back on page 151)





And with the original (painted long ago) Scots pike unit (all Perry)... Giving me a pike block of 24 figures.

Fantastic work as per Richard. The torso's are the best I have seen since the original Perry releases. Perhaps better. Painting is sublime.  :-* :-* :-*

May I ask, are these "prints" available anywhere at the moment? I would dearly love to buy some. I'm afraid 3D printing for myself will likely come a decade after everyone else if my life is anything to go by  lol

Thanks Darrell. Yes they are available, because I know several people bought commercial repro licences through the Kickstarter, including at least one in the UK. Can’t recall who though. I expect Simon, the Warsteel proprietor, can tell you though. He’s on here as GulKelan, so maybe drop him a pm?

Love these,colours are great 😃.

Cheers Keith  :)
