Perry WotR Infantry - 2nd Box - Completed

Less the command figures - which will be done next. After Dullcote-ing the Minwax finish, some quick highlighting was added. The pikes will round out a unit with figures from the previous box of Mercenaries. They will be part of the force for Stanley. The bows will beef up the existing Lancastrian units; and finally, the billmen will flesh out the Yorkists, as well as a few for Stanley.
I don't plan on acquiring/painting anymore figures for this project (Bosworth Field using a simplified version of Hail Caesar), as I'm now interested in a Siege of Louisbourg game using a simplified version of Muskets and Tomahawks. Hopefully, the three boxes of Perry figures and an equal amount of Old Glory figures should be enough - units being scaled down to be representational more than anything.
As soon as the command figures are painted, I intend to set up the units to get a better idea of planning the game/scenario.

  1. Wow, again I am very impressed Dean! Do you still work a real job... that would make the speed even more impressive!!! ;-)

    I know they are stained, but it still takes time to block in the colors properly.

    1. LOL! Thanks, Burkhard - I do still have to support a needy family (my own ;)). That said, I'm off on Fridays (today here). So, I did stay up a bit late last night to finish these. I wanted to get them out of the way as I usually go out with the wife on Fridays - also I'll be doing some WABing on Saturday. And Sunday is the Lord's. Warm Regards, Dean

  6. Finished! This army will look terrific on the gaming table. Now, being a fan of the FIW, your Siege of Louisbourg project sounds very interesting.

    1. Thanks, Jonathan. The germ of an idea for Louisbourg is the use of some existing terrain (urban) - and also not have enough rustic (timber) terrain, nor Native troops. The British beach landings and French fighting retreat through the town has potential too. Best, Dean

  7. Excellent Dean, the contrast of the green, red and blue colors you used on your figures look cool and make the figures "pop" from their bases.... nice!

    1. Thanks, James. Between the Minwax stain/wash and the acrylic caulking basing, getting gaming figures ready for the table has been a boon. Warm regards, Dean

  14. Another great batch of figures! I especially love the minor conversions. These figures make it so easy to do. the Warhammer arms work better than I would've expected, but they do look like they have big hands. As always I am impressed at how fast you can paint up a huge group of really nice figures. these days it is taking me weeks to finish just 8 of these same figures.
