Back in late January I embarked on my ECW project and this weekend I finally finished painting all the figures (just the commanders to go) so before I start on the basing I just wanted to see what they all looked like....
|The full force...|
|no particular battle order....table is 7ft wide by 3ft deep|
This is what the start of the project looked like...
|As you can see the force has grown since the first picture|
In all there are over 484 28mm minis painted (including 96 mounted troops, 8 cannons and lots of infantry. Solid painting over nine weeks works out at about 7.5 minis a day !
|Some of the metal pikemen acquired on ebay...flags and standards to be added|
The force consists of seven pike blocks with attached musketeers, Dragoons, Storming parties and plenty of cavalry.
|Pike & Shotte|
I have kept a record of spending and this little lot (excluding paint) tops out at just over £500. On top of that spend there is around £80 on movement trays.
My mate, Mark has virtually finished his Royalist Army of similar size so we should be seeuing these grace the table in the shed in the coming weeks. I for one cant wait.
|Last unit to be painted - Dragoons|
|Mounted Dragoons - conversions from regular warlord cavalry|
To get used to the Pike & Shotte rules we arte playing some min games using his 10mm stuff. I'll try and post some pictures following tonights game.
|Firelocks - will double up as storming parties or commanded shotte|
Finally special mention to my son, Shedson. It was my birthday yesterday and he bought me this new T Shirt...
Until next time....
