A Useful Irish Resource
« on: May 20, 2021, 09:28:11 PM »
As there is a bit of interest in Irish Armies of the Late Medieval and Renaissance period I thought this link would be of interest to those so inclined.
The research is first rate and up to date and there are many useful images too.

https://www.wildeirishe.com/

I was sufficiently impressed enough to re-paint the helmets and pillion saddles of my 15mm Irish cavalry.  I’m pleased with the result and couldn’t help thinking it would look splendid on larger figures.

I’m currently painting Irish and Scots for the advent of the new Bill Hooks publication. The horsemen in the pics will probably get some accompanying mounted attendants.

Very cool.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

I'm pleased it was of interest.

I think I'll add a tuft or two to the cavalry bases.

Thanks mmcv.  I've added some grass tufts to the bases.

A very interesting site, and I like how you have represented the leather in 15mm, not quite sure how I’ll try this in 10mm...

Thanks Fred, 10mm would be a challenge.  It's quite tricky in 15mm.
