Nae Popery, Nae Bishops, Nae Staine Glass Windaes!!!

Here's the first pics of a new project that i have agreed to do with David Imrie. I have always wanted to do a Covenanter and Parliment army but had no one to do it with. David offered to do a Royalist army, with us concentrating on Marston Moor and he will also give me some painting lessons so i was sold ha.

The figures will be a mix of Renegade and Bicorne and i think ill also use some of the Redoubt ECW range as well.

The first figures i have are the Renegade Covenanters and the are gorgeous figures. I first bought these about 8 years ago and i don't get why there is not more exposure of them. We will be using  1644: Rules for Battles of the English Civil War and also a great basing style that David uses.

I only get the figures today and have got the base coat done and will now look at various options for Hodden Grey.

  5. Looking great!
    Can you explain the basing?

    1. The basing is just simply keeping the command on seperate bases from the main Unit. It's more for a visual impact than any effect on the rules or the game.

      ECW Flags always went to the front of the Units and retired to the back when in combat. I get annoyed when trying to work out where is should put my command when basing as i like the units to look good regardless of the formation and the way does that for me.
