Perry WotR Infantry - WIP (Again)

Picked up a second box of the plastic Perry War of the Roses Infantry set. Using a few spares parts from the earlier Perry sets, as well as several modified halberdier arms from some Games Workshop Empire guys, I was able to build several more units of billmen and pikemen. Two more foot commands and a few more longbowmen for the Lancastrians were also built. Once these are painted and based, they'll be set up on the table to see if more figures/units will be needed for the Bosworth game. I plan to have six commands - three Yorkists and three Lancastrians. Here are the newest figures after basecoating and flesh areas painted.

  2. Dean, if you go on like this, you will have all the minis you need for the WotR by the end of the year!

    1. Thanks, Burkhard. This especially since I don't plan to have large units for this scenario. I think it's a decent compromise between table space (5X8') and representational look of units/men involved. We'll see after a playtest in the not too distant future. Best, Dean

  4. You are amassing a sizable force for this project (and quickly). When will it reach the critical mass required for a game?

    1. Thanks, Jonathan. These additions should do it - at least for the scenario I envision. A playtest will flesh it out. Best, Dean

    It's such a colorful period, can't wait to see your results.

  8. Thanks, Gents! You know part of the thing is I have to use the Minwax before it dries up :) I can never get the thing to last pristine once I open the can. Best, Dean
