Sir Henry Percy, Hotspur

Hello internet, long time no post. I’ve been a bit all over the place recently what with holiday enjoying the UK heat wave and settling in to my not so new now job.

On the wargaming front I have been playing a lot of wars of the roses games using a homebrew twist of the scottorum malleus rules. The rules give a good fun and fast game that has an end results that feels about right. If I get round to recording one of the games I’ll put up a full battle report. In the meantime here is a picture from a battle… a York!!! a York!!!   wotr

I’ve also been side tracked by an Otterburn project in 10mm using Hinchliffe’s 10mm 100 years wars range. In my opinion it’s a very solid range the sculpts are good and are the same size as pendrakens. You also get a lot of different poses in the packs so your units look nice and alive. This is the first stand Hotspur himself who i will end up doing again for Shrewsbury with his later heraldry… probably…. the Flag is hand painted and looks ok for the scale me thinks, comments as always very welcome.

A York, A York

I dug up these old photos of my wars of the roses Yorkists. There from my slowly growing army I’m building for poleaxed 2, I’m aiming for to full sides eventually and at this rate probably finished sometime around 2015. At the moment I’m playing the Yorkists verses themselves using bloody barons with a few modifications to work with the basing.

The photos aren’t the best but I like the mass effect. It reminds me of being on the field at the Tewksbury re-enactment earlier this year (all be it on the Lancastrian side boo hiss). I’ll have to get some better pictures of these in a game up soon.

The miniatures are 10mm from pendraken
