Front Rank Foot Yeomen

Another unit for my Lion Rampant force. I painted these up as the retinue of the Duke of Lorraine, and are probably more uniform than they would be in actual life. I may be wrong but I don't think such livery became the norm until much later. The flag by Maverick Models and is quite distinctive compared with the others in my collection (all are some form of fleur-de-lise) . I did highlight these figures but this has not come out well in the pics.

FireForge Plastic Mounted Sergeants

Hi Folks,

This is my first post of 2016, I'm ashamed to say. Although I've been playing games a plenty at the club I've almost lost the desire to paint. Well, anyway here is my first offering for 2016, they are plastic yuck! but this is a result of my visit to vapnartak at York in February. I spotted some Perry metal sergeants and should have bought them on the spot but I went for a wander around the other stalls and when I returned they had gone! So not wanting to leave empty handed I got the next best thing. They aren't bad sculpts actually! I just have to decide on pennants for them, they will form two units of six riders for Lion Rampant.

I did notice that during my absence that the number of visitors reached over the 100,000 mark and many thanks to all those who have paid a visit and commented over the years.
