Wars of the Roses Project - Completed!

Sunday saw the completion of the WotR project when I put the last coat of paint on the last two units of archers.

What was intended as a small project -  a retinue of 30 archers, 15 Knights and 15 billmen - has suffered a bit of scope creep and now there are 324 foot and 24 mounted figures. The army might extend a little bit more with the addition of some light cavalry. The whole army is made up from the Perry plastics.

Over the Christmas break I may have have a proper "parade", but for now here are a few shots of the latest unit of knights and billmen.

    2. Indeed, I do! For me, it seems unavoidable. For you, I think the same!

  3. Thank you Phil, and Joyeux Noel to you. You give me too much credit though, the detail on the armour has more to do with the qualityvof the figures than the quality of my paining...I am paint and wash man these days!

  4. Great work Mark. Only a slight increase in the numbers for this project. It will be good to see them all paraded.

    Amazing output once again Mark my retinue is starting to look like it needs some serious reinforcements.
